The former EastEnders star, 30, said in a series of candid Twitter posts on Friday that he 'didn't want to be alive anymore.'

Taking to Twitter, Danny, who played Lee Carter in EastEnders, revealed:  'The beginning of my first year at Arts was very difficult. 

'I remember Googling the easiest and most painless ways I could take my life. I felt so socially out of my depth that I didn’t want to be alive anymore.

'One Friday night in particular I ran a hot bath as per the instructions on google with a blade in hand ready to make a huge mistake, before realising that passing my pain onto my family wasn’t the answer. It never is…'  

Danny made the shocking announcement in a bid to defend his former drama school boss Chris Hocking, who was recently fired after investigations found the Arts Ed dance classes were 'overly sexualised'.
