The Dublin-born judge looks all rough ‘n’ ready but is quite the charmer and reveals to Fabulous magazine from The Sun every Sunday: “After the show went out I had 200 marriage proposals in two days.
Crazy stuff. And I get a lot of girls tweeting the same message over and over asking me to follow them, which is a bit like someone constantly ringing your doorbell”.
“I’m loving it though. I see it as a bit of fun unless it starts getting stalkerish. My mother checks my Twitter, and I wouldn’t like her to see what people have said they’d like to do to me.”Danny reveals to Fabulous the criteria required to be his ideal girl, “I look for confidence in a partner. I like girls who are up for a challenge. Someone to go walking and hill climbing with and who doesn’t mind trawling through the s*** across fields. Someone who likes to get their hands dirty.”
Danny admits that being offered the role as a judge on The Voice was a shock, “I have absolutely no idea how I managed to talk my way into it,” he continues,
“I’d interviewed for the position and been called back, but I heard that people like Mary J Blige were also in the running. I knew Will Young was the favourite… As far as I was aware there was a lot of hearsay and rumour and I didn’t know anything for sure. But I was so thrilled to get the job.”
Danny keeps it real and is by no means looking for fame, “I never wanted to be famous for being famous. I wanted to be known for my music. But we’ve been looking for a project that would help get our personalities across for quite a while and this was the best way forward. Now’s the time to go balls to the wall.”
Heart-throb, Danny, is pretty confident, admitting to Fabulous, “Obviously I think I’ve got the winner.” Confidence is always the way to a girls heart!
