‘At Barnett Hospital a lovely nurse named Karina examined my body and 6ft 9 consultant Eric Witt gave me a CT scan to check for blood on the brain. Thank you… ok.

Speaking to MailOnline ahead of the series’ launch, Dan said: ‘I almost gave up on the game, we all shared a YouTube account at home and the kids were watching something and the last thing they saw was’ How about Charleston?’ And then he said ‘Dad, do you want to tell us something?’

‘Obviously I talked about it with my wife Sarah, I didn’t tell the kids until the weekend before Tuesday, I don’t know why I was so secretive about it, and I had so many things to talk about. So I really wanted to put it aside.
Dan previously revealed that he was first approached by the owners to participate in the show, and he eventually agreed after being persuaded by his family.
He continued: ‘I have 3 kids who are 14, 12 and 10 years old and they sat me down for Christmas and they said, ‘Dad, if you ask again, we’ll really…
