Emmerdale star Danny Miller had fans in hysterics as he branded himself a ‘fat Wolverine with five chins’.

The actor is well known for his role as Aaron Dingle on the ITV hit soap. The star quit the show in 2021 to appear on I’m A Celebrity but he has made his dramatic return.

Away from the soap, Aaron regularly keeps his followers updated on his real life. The 33-year-old left fans in fits of laughter as he took a playful swipe at viral body transformation videos.

Danny took to Instagram and shared his Tiktok video, where he could be seen shirtless and with a big bushy beard. He filmed himself in the mirror as he joked about letting himself go. He said: "So I just finished work for six weeks now. I've got six weeks off, which is good. It gives me the chance to do a six week transformation which I've seen trends.

"As you can tell, I've let myself go a bit. My face is round, I've got about four or five chins, beard's long, hair's a mess, like a fat Wolverine, effectively, so no time like the present."

The screen then cut to black before Danny reappeared looking the same. He said: "Yeah I couldn't be a***d. I tried... I didn't even have a hair cut really. This could have all been filmed in one day, couldn't it? So yeah..."

The comment section was flooded with comments from fans. @Brianbennettphotographer wrote: “I think you’d be a great Wolverine. Looking good!”

@sarahmassey0807 commented: “Laugh out loud moment.” @nicolagear said: “I think your bloody brilliant.” @Geysirbear said: “You can do it, good look, feeling inspired to follow your six week plan.” @angiemaddo65 wrote: “Howling.” While @tait4470 added: “Lol. Go on Danny.”

It comes as Danny previously took a swipe at body-shaming trolls. Posting on Twitter, he wrote: "Say what you want about Aaron. He's fictional, I play what I'm told to play. But please don't think commenting about 'Danny' being 'fat' or 'chubby' will EVER bother me.

"I'm sat eating a greasy kebab AND a pizza, laughing at you whilst gulping a FULL FAT COKE you b***ends."
