Dan's long term partner Matt confessed he was worried that Dan's talk about being a former police detective may have hurt his experience in the house already.
He said: "I think he's doing really well and he's doing what he does well.
"I just wish he didn't come into the house as the detective, I think he'd have been better off not telling anyone saying what he did, like said he was a postman or something instead."
Matt also confessed that the commanding Dan we've seen on the telly is not quite the same Dan he's used to seeing at home, laughing: "He's not that bossy at home, I wouldn't be putting up with any of that at home!"
Matt revealed that Dan isn't usually so suspicious despite his line of work, but did concede when he first started dating him even he came under a bit of interrogation like some of the housemates.
"When he's at work, he's at work, when he's at home he completely switches off," Matt explained. "but when we first started going out he was a bit like that [interrogating]"
