We know Daniel’s got an outstanding news pedigree but it’s his past that provides some of his best yarns – he’s a former flight attendant.

This isn't Daniel’s first time on the early shift, he’s been Breakfast reporter before, bringing us some of the biggest stories and best dance moves.

Daniel’s a dad to three boys and spends his weekends as one of ‘those’ parents, shouting a little too loudly on the sidelines.
