The pop singer, who shot to fame with the band in 2001, posted a video of the terrifying incident on his Twitter.com page, explaining that he was a passenger in the vehicle when it suddenly caught fire.

In the clip, which was posted on Twitter.com, the car can be seen completely engulfed in flames as firefighters attempt to tackle the blaze.

"Shocked!! I was a passenger! Vauxhall Zafira Fire - Are you safe?... This must stop!" he tweeted.

Danny received a message of support from his former Hear'Say bandmate Kym Marsh, who wrote, "Wow! Flipping eck (sic)! I'm glad you're ok! X"

Executives at carmaker Vauxhall recently launched an investigation and recalled thousands of Zafira models following reports of spontaneous fires.
