"Happy Birthday to our amazing, gorgeous, kind and wonderful 14-year-old Susie," he remarked. "She wanted waffles for breakfast, a chocolate brownie cake with sprinkles for later & some brown converse high-tops (which are surprisingly hard to find). I hope you have a lovely Sunday."

Dan, 44, later clarified some of the items visible on his living room mantlepiece. "For those asking... the octopus is a pressie from Susie's brother & sister.

"The candle holders are made from nine different woods and were an anniversary gift from my brother-in-law (who is a master cabinet maker and a wood genius) and the picture on the wall was a birthday present for Mrs W a few years ago. It is by the brilliant @lisahouseartist."

He married wife Sarah back in 2001 and the couple now share three children: son Joe and daughters Susanna and Jessica. They met while studying at the University of Sheffield, where Dan graduated with a Masters degree in broadcast journalism in 1999.

The family moved back to the Yorkshire city four years ago, with the broadcaster opening up about the reason behind the decision in an interview with MailOnline.

Speaking to the publication in 2018, Dan said: "My wife Sarah and I moved to Sheffield last year because it's played a big part in our lives - we both studied here and it's where I began broadcasting."
