I’M A Celebrity’s production crew were thrown into a panic today after a plane flew over Gwrych Castle with a huge banner that said “Danny Miller to win”.
The prank sparked a frenzy within the castle walls with crew members herding the celebs back inside to avoid them seeing the sign.
Thankfully a disaster was avoided and the celebs were non-the-wiser – after fans of the Emmerdale star chartered the plane and breached the show’s tight security measures.
A source told HOAR: “Nobody has any idea who was behind the prank, but fortunately the campmates were inside the castle and didn’t see it.
“It’s part of the show that they’re cut off from the outside world and don’t have any idea who is popular with viewers – it was a close call.”
All 11 remaining campmates had spent four days quarantining in temporary accommodation following their evacuation from Storm Arwen – and they didn’t have access to the outside world.
Danny, 30, has odds of 12 to 1 to win the series, and Coronation Street star Simon Gregson is the new 5-2 favourite with bookmaker Coral.
David Ginola is next best at 11-4 with the firm, while Franke Bridge is 4-1.
“Simon Gregson has been the most popular selection in our betting since he arrived in the castle. The Corrie actor is now the clear favourite ahead of David Ginola and Frankie Bridge,” said Coral’s John Hill.
EastEnders star Adam Woodyatt and Snoochie Shy have been given better odds than Danny, at 8-1.
Journalist Louise Minchin trailed far behind at 20-1 and despite getting loads of screen time, Naughty Boy – who has threatened to quit the series – is at 25-1, followed by Olympians Kadeena Cox at 33-1 and Matty Lee at 50-1.
“In the first elimination market, Arlene Phillips is the favourite to be voted off the show,” added Hill.
