Danny and his family arrived in the village from Bradford and his storylines include his relationships with Ollie Reynolds (Vicky Binns), Donna Windsor (Verity Rushworth) and Dawn Woods (Julia Mallam).

He left the Dales after his sister Latisha (Danielle Henry) visited Danny and offered him a job with the family in Lisbon.

After deciding to leave, Danny returned briefly in May 2007 for Len's funeral to comfort Len's partner Pearl Ladderbanks (Meg Johnson) before returning to Portugal.

Of his exit, Cleveland said: “I’ve had a fantastic five years on Emmerdale and made a lot of very good friends but I’m looking forward to pursuing other projects.”
