We all know someone like Dan. He has a good heart, fun and great sense of humour. Always the first to put himself down, he sometimes doesn’t’ realise how well loved he is.
This can be seen in his close bond with his family as despite being left by his wife for a women…he has a very strong, caring relationship with them both where they look out for each other. Dan is no push over though. Through Sean challenging Dan about people taking advantage of him, we see the qualities that are important to Dan. Honesty, trust and family. Dan’s a sucker for romance, and even though Chas broke his heart, he’s on the look out for love.
