"When I was studying at uni I bounced my face into a metal stage from a bucking bronco — I was sober at the time so it really was pretty bad. You could see the bone on my nose in two places and my eyes swelled up quite a lot, it was quite nasty." 

The TV personality continued: "It was a long process to get over but eventually I tried NLP therapy which really helped me. When I did that I felt like I came out the other side of things."

Danni said: "We were driving in the mountains of Spain when I saw this little thing at the side of the road. It was a puppy, she was half-dead... We found this lovely animal charity and a nice couple to adopt her."

The star is a dog lover, and previously told The Sunday Post: "I am not 100% on having kids, but I am 100% on having lots of dogs and probably a rescue donkey as well – basically anything that needs a home."
