Dan’s Dating Life

On the basis that Dan is giving a dating show a shot, you could guess he’s pretty keen on finding that someone special.

From his Insta, Dan seems to be quite comfortable pointing fun at the fact that he’s relatively unlucky in love, even calling it a ‘car crash’!

Where is Dan From?

Dan comes from Wales and can speak Welsh.

His Instagram is packed full of family photos sometimes captioned in Welsh.

Hashtag ‘Taffys on tour’ is one of Dan’s most used, meaning ‘Welsh people out and about’, basically.

Dan’s Dog

The Welshman’s pride and joy is his springer spaniel cross Labrador, Missy.

Although Dan’s from Wales, he lives in London so has to make the heart-wrenching decision of leaving Missy at home with his family more often than he’d like.

It seems as though Dan loves to take Missy with him wherever he goes, on the tube, in the front seat with the top down, anywhere, really.

Dan’s Passions

Well, it was pretty obvious that Dan was going to enjoy dance as he’s taking part in flirty dancing.

Other than that he loves rugby and is a real gym bunny.

Dan’s pretty disciplined and even makes time for workouts while on holiday.
