Emmerdale Dan Spencer star finds love with old flame who he dated at university

Liam Fox has been playing the role of Dan Spencer in Emmerdale for the past 10 years.

Branded 'Desperate Dan' when he first starred in the ITV soap, viewershave seen him marry three times – with one of them void due to his spouse being a bigamist.

Liam was originally contracted for just eight episodes, but that quickly turned into 800, and he has fast become a firm favourite among viewers.

When he was first signed up to the dramatic soap in 2011, he was married to another famous soap star, Nicole Barber-Lane who used to play Myra McQueen in the Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks.
