I’m A Celeb’s Danny Miller calls show a ‘nightmare’ saying he was ‘homesick from day one’ as he speaks out after victory


I’M A Celebrity’s Danny Miller has branded his time on the show a “nightmare” hours after being crowned the first King of Castle.

The 30-year-old appeared on today’s Good Morning Britain and reflected on his time in Gwrych Castle, admitting that it was tough being on camera 24/7.

When asked by hosts Adil Ray and Ranvir Singh about the pressures of being filmed all day, Danny got candid and admitted: “I mean I’ll be honest with you, it was an absolute nightmare.

“It was from start to finish it was tension, it was awful. Luckily for me I had David Ginola all the way throughout,” he quipped.

“But I don’t think you ever get used to it. I mean I’m used to being in front of the camera but to have a camera recording you all the way throughout y’know 24 hours a day seven days a week, It doesn’t make it any easier.”

One again joking, Danny added: “But luckily I had David Ginola in my ear, in my mind, he didn’t let me go”.

“The whole reason I did it was for my fiancée, soon-to-be wife, and baby Albert were the whole reason to set them up for a big future,” he said candidly.

“But David Ginola came into my life and he’s the reason I stuck through it, he helped me through it”.

Later in the interview, Danny admitted he underestimated signing up to the ITV stalwart and said he was homesick from “day one”.

He concluded: “I didn’t realise what I had signed up to, I really, really missed my family. I was homesick from day one.”

His appearance comes hours after I’m A Celebrity fans branded Danny’s win a “fix”.

The soap star went head to head with Coronation Street’s Simon Gregson in last night’s final, after Frankie Bridge finished in third place.

Danny had been one the bookies’ favourite to win I’m A Celeb for most of the season, but that didn’t stop the cynics from labelling the result as “fixed” pointing to the fact the three finalists were all ITV stars as proof.

Danny shot to fame playing Aaron Dingle in Emmerdale, which he quit shortly before joining I’m A Celeb.

Meanwhile, Simon is soap royalty having played Steve McDonald in Coronation Street since 1989.

I’m A Celeb is a big cash cow for ITV and jaded viewers accused the series of fixing the result to promote other shows across the network.

“Another reality tv fix quits emmerdale goes on I’m a celeb wins I never waste time voting the winner is decided before the program starts like other people have said all along it’s fixed,” wrote one angry fan on Twitter.

Another added: “Absolute fix. Simon should have won.”

And a third observed: “Strange how the three finalists are all ITV regulars?”

But other fired back at fixing claims and accused the cynics of being mad because their favourites did not win.

“Oh for God’s sake why is everything a fix when people don’t get the result they want. #ImACeleb is a fix #Strictly2021 is a fix #f1 is a fix blah blah. People need to grow up and get a life,” one fan shot back on Twitter.

It comes after former campmate Nicola McLean claimed that ITV bosses choose who their winner will be in advance.

She said: “I think they already have their winner figured out to be honest,” adding that it will be an “ITV friendly person”.
