It appears there are no hard feelings between the pair, with Dan even going as far as declaring his feelings for Jon instead of his wife, Sarah Walker.

Sharing the hilarious exchange with Sarah – who is the mother of Dan's three children – he included the caption: "Definitely up there as one of the most awkward messages I've ever sent to my wife."

He added a number of crying with laughter emojis and the hashtag "predictive text".

The text read: "Ten minutes away.

"I love you John."

Realising his mistake, Dan backtracked with a follow up message: "Not John….You."

Many of Dan's adoring fans were left in hysterics as they each in turn left an abundance of quips and laughing face emoji's within the comments section.

Dan's former co-star Jon, was left flattered that he'd seemingly appeared in the exchange and took to Twitter to also get in on the banter.

Re-posting Dan's earlier tweet, Jon hilariously penned: "No 'H' mate. But I'm very touched."
