BOGNOR Regis’ own Danny Mac has been tipped to take this year’s Strictly Come Dancing crown.
Topping the leaderboard last week, former Hollyoaks star Danny wowed the judges with his tremendous Tango.
He had his first taste for the spotlight at Stagecoach Performing Arts in Chichester.
Best known as Mark ‘Dodger’ Savage in the Channel 4 soap, Danny has been showcasing the moves he perfected at the Chichester branch of the nationwide network of performing arts schools.
Stephanie Hicks, the principal of Stagecoach Chichester and Danny’s former teacher, says: “I can still remember Danny walking through our doors like it was yesterday. Such a fabulously talented young boy and it’s easy to see why he has gone on to such success.
“It just goes to show that our children are capable of so much and that with the right amount of support and guidance, they can aspire to anything.”
Stagecoach Performing Arts School in Chichester is located at Bishop Luffa School and offers Saturday classes in term time for children aged 4-18 years.
Staff and volunteers at St Wilfrid’s Hospice at Chichester are also cheering for Danny Mac. He has been one of the hospice’s patrons since 2013 and his mum, Jan Greene, is the deputy ward sister on its inpatient unit.
