Danny plays Mick Carter in the BBC One soap and told the story on his and daughter Dani Dyer’s Spotify podcast Sorted with the Dyers.
Danny was turning his hand to a spot of DIY when he suddenly realised he was trapped inside the piece of furniture, and had to destroy some of his handy work in order to escape.
Speaking on the podcast, he said: ‘I once built a wardrobe and I built myself into it. I had to then smash my way out of the back. I don’t know how I did it. I was very, very young. I built it the wrong way round and then I couldn’t get out.’
Danny was explaining the story to guest Romesh Ranganathan to cheer him up, after the comedian confessed he isn’t the best at DIY and joked it’s ‘like a dagger to [his] heart’ when someone comments on the wonky dining chairs he built.
He added: ‘All those traditionally male jobs, I’m just s**t at. We had dining chairs and they had to be assembled. I put them together and did it s***, so they’re wonky and a bit c**p.
Every times a guest comes round and says: “this chair is a bit funny”, it’s like a dagger to my heart as I realise it’s just another person commenting on my masculinity.’
