DANNY Miller has confessed he’s not ruling out a permanent return to Emmerdale ahead of his brief stint for the soap’s 50th anniversary.
But despite being the reigning king of the jungle, Danny wasn’t part of the line-up of celebs who flew to South Africa to film the all stars special.
Instead he’ll make a short return as Aaron in the ITV soap – and it may not be the last fans see of him.
Confessing that it was a risk to leave around the same time the show’s serial killer Meena Jutla was at large, Danny said: “It’s a risk, you know, you can’t just go up there and say, I’m leaving and don’t you dare kill me off.
“Cause you don’t have that say, you know, you’re not the boss by any means.
“I was very grateful to Jane and the team for just sort of sparing my character.”
He continued to the Mirror: “When they called to say, would I like to be part of the 50th? I was just obviously instantly interested.
“I knew the storylines, which kind of attracted me to come to come to come back and celebrate the 50th with such a big part of my life.
“It has been really nice getting back and seeing everyone and there’s a lot of new faces and there’s a lot of old faces and it’s been nice to get to know them and catch up with the people that I’ve not seen for a year.”
