Danny, who plays ladies' man Mark 'Dodger' Savage in the Channel 4 soap, will bow out in January after three years.
Dodger has currently been at the centre of attention in Chester with girlfriend Maxine Minniver and ex-lover Theresa McQueen. With the two ladies fighting for his love, Dodger's twin sister Sienna has also been vying for attention.
And we are told that show bosses have lined up a major storyline thought to tie in with his exit.
A source exclusively tells Reveal: "Danny Mac will be leaving the show next year but not before being involved in a huge storyline this Christmas.
"Dodger is forced to choose between the good, the bad and the downright wrong in his complicated love square with Maxine, Theresa and Sienna but who will he choose and will it be a happy ending?"
It looks like Dodger will have to choose who his heart lies with - will it be Maxine or Theresa? And will he abandon his sister?
Danny joined Hollyoaks in 2011 and became an instant hit with fans, especially the ladies. The heartthrob has won the Sexiest Male gong at the British Soap Awards for the past two years, and in total he's bagged five Sexiest Male titles from various ceremonies.
