Danny Malin teams up with his mum for Christmas review as she likens him to an 'old Peter Kay'

Danny Malin's mum says her son's appearance has changed from that of a 'young Rodney' to an 'old Peter Kay' in the Youtuber's latest food review.

The Rate My Takeaway star, from Leeds, takes his mum Toni to Green Lane Kitchen, in Sheffield, to try out the café's Christmas feast. And mother and son, who appear to be very close, make fun of each other for most of the review.

Danny reveals a photo of himself as a thinner, young man with his first car, to which Toni quips: "You went from a young Delboy [sic] to an old Peter Kay."

Toni then corrects herself and says she means Rodney, played by Nicholas Lyndhurst, in the old BBC comedy Only Fools and Horses. "I've got a lovely [photo] of you with a dress," Toni says, although we don't see it.

Toni says she was once mistaken for Danny's wife – "I was gorgeous then," she says – and reveals a 'fiddle' Danny had with his friends and a fruit machine in the family chip shop when he was a child.

Danny would, says Toni, tell his friends the machine was about to pay out – although it wasn't. Danny, who now has 582,000 YouTube subscribers, would play the bandit later when it was ready to pay out and reap the rewards.

"Danny was always naughty in the chip shop," Toni, who calls Danny 'Chunk', says. "Everyone thinks you have a halo but you were a naughty boy sometimes."

Danny remarks his mum's false teeth would come 'bouncing out' onto the table if she hadn't glued them in.

They order curried parsnip soup, bubble and squeak with a poached egg, a cheese toastie, two massive festive sandwiches, two scones and two seasonal hot drinks. We won't reveal too much about what they thought of their lunch but let's say Toni was rather impressed with the poached egg.
