"We're just getting on with it the best we can, it's one of those things we're so excited about," Danny said.

"That's primarily the focus now, it's just as well to be honest that I've got two jobs to go back to as I'm going to need them!"

Ranvir went on to ask how he'll squeeze in his two West End jobs with parenthood looming just on the horizon.

"It will fit in, it has to. I'm just turning into an official grown up now!" he joked.
