New Hollyoaks hunk Danny Mac has revealed he makes a show-stopping entrance to the soap this week – stripping down to his boxers.

The 23-year-old actor arrives in the Channel 4 show as ladies’ man Mark Savage, known as Dodger, when his family move into the McQueen’s house, and he immediately bares all.

Danny told Reveal magazine: “Dodger pulls up and within seconds you know what he’s really like – as he’s stripped down to his boxers. I’m dreading seeing it back on screen.”

The Kent-born actor and singer, who has been starring in the musical Wicked, feels quite comfortable with his body, but is worried about keeping in shape now he’s going to be baring his muscles on the soap.

He said: “I’ve never had to watch what I eat and I don’t have a gym membership. but I’ll have to start training now I’m going to be hanging around all day, and there are always biscuits on set.

“I’m really self-critical, but out of 10, I’d give myself a seven because I’m young and healthy. If you’re less than five, you don’t leave the house.”

Danny, who is dating fellow West End star Zoe Doano who is currently playing Frenchie in Grease, insists he is nothing like his character.

He said: “Dodger is a ladies’ man. He’s so different to me. I’m a terrible liar, so I couldn’t get away with it. Being a bad liar keeps me on the straight and narrow.”
