Emmerdale actor Danny Miller has reportedly stepped in to save a army mans life.

The soap star, 30, who is better known for his role as Aaron Dingle, was claimed to have stepped in to speak with the gentleman who was getting ready to jump from the bridge.

It is alleged that the solider had been suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder [PTSD] which lead him to contemplate suicide.

According to witnesses who were there at the scene, Danny began to speak to him about his own struggles with mental health.

After chatting, Danny had successfully managed to talk the man down and is said to have shared a hug with the man who is believed to have told him he'd saved his life.

Going above and beyond the call of duty, a source even explained that Danny exchanged phone numbers with the man and told him to call "whenever he needed him".

According to Metro.co.uk the young man has since been taken to hospital after the emergency services arrived.

An insider who witnessed Danny's heroic intervention told the same publication: "The man was in serious distress and Danny went over and chatted to him.

"As they talked about their experience there was a clear bond.

"The young man eventually stepped back and they shared a hug.

"They exchanged numbers and Danny told him to contact him whenever he needed him"

The incident took place on the Audenshaw Manchester motorway, with reports claiming the distressed gentleman had served in the army.

It is also believed that police and ambulance crew hailed the Emmerdale star for saving the man's life after it was claimed he physically pulled him to safety before delving into his own experiences.

Daily Star has contacted Danny's representatives for a comment.

During lockdown Danny spoke out about his mental health battle, explaining that his girlfriend had been his rock.
