Dominic told the Mirror in 2018, when his son was nine years old: “Back then it was horrible. You are in the eye of the storm, it was horrible. You think you are going to lose your son.

“We had just gotten to know him – he was eight months old, and we thought that was it.

“We discussed organ donation. It was brought up by a nurse because there was a death rate with the operation.

“We had to discuss it, but even before that we had all agreed to be donors in the family – my sisters are nurses, so that’s how we were brought up.”

Luckily Danny made it out and he appeared with his dad on ITV’s Little Big Star Star.
