Emmerdale star Danny Miller is one of the most beloved characters on the show, having played Aaron Dingle for 11 years.
But long before he joined the Emmerdale cast in 2008, the 28-year-old was a budding actor.
Taking to Instagram this week, the soap star proved he was “always destined for showbiz” with an adorable throwback pic.
Danny shared a pic from his childhood, showing him modelling a purple bikini with patterned plasters stuck across both knees.
Underneath, his 394,000 followers weighed in on the sweet snap, praising his cuteness as a child – and his talent on the show.
One said: “Cutest thing that I saw today. OMG!”
A second chipped in: “That is just brilliant! Love it! You are so funny and clearly always have been!”
Even a few celebs weighed in on the throwback post, with Good Morning Britain’s Richard Arnold saying “brilliant”.
Former Emmerdale star Adam Thomas wrote “hahaha love this” while his co-star Emma Atkins added “wonderful”.
Isobel Steele, who plays Aaron’s younger sister Liv Flaherty on the show, remarked: “Love the matching plasters on the knees!”
Danny has been seriously proving his talent on screen in recent weeks, as he deals with the loss of his beloved husband Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley).
After Robert was sent to prison, he decided to cut off all contact from his family, leaving Aaron and Robert’s sister Victoria (Isabel Hodgins) heartbroken.
But last night Aaron suffered the final blow, as Robert issued divorce papers, making their split official.
Will Aaron ever get over his broken heart?
Emmerdale continues tonight at 7pm on ITV.
