So, meanwhile, we wait for Paul to win the celebrity show, let’s learn all about his romantic life — girlfriend, wife, and also his net worth and height.
Paul Danan On Coach Trip
Paul Danan and Ashley MacKenzie were paired together on Celebrity Coach Trip season 7, which premiered in Jan 2022. Before the fun began, Paul took it to his IG to share that he would be giving his fans “lots of laughter and entertainment” for 3 weeks in January.
Also, he emphasized the fact that while the viewers “sit all cozy and warm by the fire with the snow or rain or whatever cold weather is going on outside,” they would be out there having those adventures.
In case you’re interested in his Celebrity Coach Trip partner, Ashley was born in London in 1989 and has won multiple gold medals in judo. He has a daughter named Lana Rose with his girlfriend/fellow judo star Automne Pavia.
Joining Paul and Ashley this season were pairs — Sophie Kasaei and James Tindale, Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph, Celena Cherry and Mariama Goodman, and Will Best and Matt Richardson.
Does Paul Danan Have Wife Or Girlfriend?
Paul Danan appeared to be single as of 2022. But his list of girlfriends includes celebrities like Emma Bunton, Melanie Sykes, Kelly Brook, and Katie Price.
Recalling his time with Melanie Sykes, the actor shared their first date was a disaster. Reason? Well, he crashed his car on the way to pick her up for a date in 1996. “The guy in front had to go off in an ambulance and all I’m thinking was, I’ve got a date with Melanie Sykes,” he said in his defense.
But it wasn’t just their first date that didn’t go well. The two were on and off for a couple of months after that, until Melanie ended up marrying a guy actor.
Likewise, another first date that went terrible for Paul was with the TV personality Katie Price. She brought her a male friend with them on their date! Explaining that she was “shy.”
But among all of his “nightmarish” dates, the top certainty would be his date with Emma Bunton. He shared that it was 1999 when he drove from Liverpool to take Emma for an event, where the Spice Girl introduced him to David and Victoria Beckham.
“It was a really big thing, as it was a proper date but when we got there Victoria was so rude,” he recalled.
It seems that Victoria refused to shake his hand, while he was standing there with his hands out. Ouch! And to add insult to an injury, Emma later said to him, “We have to leave separately and we’ll meet you down the end of the road.”
Fun Fact: Paul’s grandad once walked in on him having a streamy session with Kelly Brook.
