Daniel has an Opinion

Posted 20th August 2013

[« back to news]

Daniel has been cast in the new Musical comedy THE OPINION MAKERS.

When the utterly incompetent team at Fernsby Market Research find themselves facing the stiffest challenge of their professional lives – to report what the British Public really think of world famous ‘Doctor Campbell’s Lotion’ in readiness for a re-launch – there’s only one thing for it; make it all up! After all, that’s what market research companies do, isn’t it?

Critically-acclaimed writing duo Brian Mitchell and Joseph Nixon have assembled a wonderful cast of characters for this brand new musical comedy, including: the hapless Fernsby and his useless sidekicks; a beatnik Advertising phoney and his jazz flute playing muse; a Scottish Laird with a dark secret and a glamorous American gold-digger wife; and an insane Home Secretary-in-waiting.

Joining Daniel are The Great British Bake Off's Mel Giedroyc and friend and West End star Julie Atherton.

This hilarious, off beat musical features great new songs that’ll transport you back to the world of ‘swinging sixties’ London. Think Mad Men meets Carry On!

Daniel has the ''perfect blend''...

Posted 17th April 2013

[« back to news]

Daniel has recently been chosen as the new voice of the iconic theme tune to the Australian soap Neighbours.

Daniel entered a Channel 5 competition 'Neighbours Remixed' and was voted for by the British public as the UK representative to fly to Melbourne and go head to head with Australian winner Stephanie Angelini. Both got to record their versions as well as meeting the cast and touring the sets.

The judges, including Barry Crocker who was the original voice of the theme tune, could not decide between the two and so decided it was a draw. The theme song is now be a duet for the first time with Daniel being the first ever Brit to sing this famous tune.

“I am over the moon to have won this competition. I grew up watching Neighbours (and still watch it daily) so to think I am now the voice of such an iconic theme tune is totally surreal. Thank you to everyone who voted for me – it was an amazing trip and one that I will treasure for a long time.”

Daniel can be heard singing the song on Channel 5, weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm.
