I’m A Celeb winner Danny Miller broke down in tears as he was reunited with his fiancée Steph Jones and their baby Albert on Monday’s episode of Lorraine.

The Emmerdale star and King of The Castle, 30, was surprised with a virtual reunion as he appeared on the show and was overjoyed at getting to see his seven-week old son. 

Families were not permitted to attend the final due to Covid and Danny is yet to return home.  

Midwife Steph admitted she had missed him ‘so much’ while he was away to take part in the show and said she knew he would win for being so ‘genuine and down to earth.’

As Steph and Albert appeared on screen on the daytime TV show, Danny put his head in his heads and became overwhelmed with emotion.

He said: ‘I love you so much. I wasn’t expecting this, this is a set up Lorraine, you’ve got me!

‘The whole reason I did it was to show the country I wasn’t just Aaron off Emmerdale, I was my own person. Steph was the reason I did it, her and Albert… I’m speechless, this is the worst interview you’re ever going to give in your life.

‘Steph said you need to go and show everyone what I know about you so that’s what I’ve done. 

‘This show gave me the financial security to do it and I’m not ashamed to say it. This show gave me the financial security to do it… I can’t believe I’m meeting him. Look at him!’  

Steph, holding their son, replied: ‘He’s seven weeks today. We’ve missed you so much Danny, we just want you to come home now. I love you so much, we’re so proud of you, we can’t wait to see you later!’

Winner: Danny was crowned the first King of the Castle, while Simon Gregson came second and Frankie Bridge third in Sunday's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! final

Elsewhere in his interview with Lorraine, Danny discussed his close relationship with fellow campmate and French footballer David Ginola.  

He said: ‘He was a father figure for me in there. He kept me sane. Steph’s always been the person who drilled confidence in me. 

‘David was a hero of mine from a baby boy. He was the reason I wanted to wear the No 14 shirt and play on the left and right of the wing!’

Lorraine then asked Steph why she thinks Danny won, to which she replied: ‘As soon as he went in we knew he’d win if he just showed who he is because he’s just the most genuine, down to earth amazing human. 

‘He’s just an all round amazing person!’ 

Earlier on Monday morning Danny also spoke to Good Morning Britain after being crowned King of The Castle on this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

The actor and show super fan told presenters Ranvir Singh and Adil Ray that he was ‘still on cloud nine’ after winning.

Ranvir asked I’m A Celeb superfan Danny how the experience was for him.

Danny said: ‘I’ll be honest with you – It was an absolute nightmare. From start to finish, it was tension, It was awful, luckily for me I had David Ginola all the way throughout.

‘I don’t think you can ever get used to it. Obviously I’m used to being in front of a camera, but to have a camera recording you all the way throughout, 24 hours a day, seven days a week it doesn’t make it any easier, but luckily I’d David Ginola in my ear, in my mind and he didn’t let me go.’

Ranvir asked: ‘You do have a wife and a newborn baby, but it was David Ginola who got you through this…?’

‘It’s a good point, yeah, I forgot about them!,’ he laughed. ‘The whole reason I did it was for my fiance, soon to be wife, and my baby Albert were the whole reason, to set them up for a big future, but you know, David Ginola came into my life and he was the reason I stuck through it. He helped me through it.’

On making the decision to leave his son to take part in the show, he explained: ‘Albert is six and a half weeks now. I’ve not seen him yet. I’m waiting to go back today to see him. Can’t wait to put him in my arms and see him for the first time in what seems like a lifetime.’

‘Well it is a lifetime for him, isn’t it?’ Ranvir asked.

‘Fortunately for him he’s no idea, but unfortunately for me I’ve missed him,’ said Danny. ‘He won’t know but I certainly have and I’ll spend the rest of my life making sure I make it up to him.’

Adil asked: ‘What’s it like when you go to bed at night and the cameras have stopped rolling, you’re on your own, what were you thinking?’








‘I take back every single thing I’ve ever said about any celebrity that’s taken part ever being on that show about how ridiculous they look after day two, three, four, being homesick and ridiculous crying on TV – I was 18 hours into the show crying thinking, ‘What have I done?’

‘I didn’t realise what I’d signed up to. I really missed my family. I was homesick from day one. Only people who sign up to the show realise what they signed up to because I didn’t realise.

On his bromance with David Ginola, Danny said: ‘I was trying to get a leg over with him all week, he was having none of it. I wanted a cuddle and a spoon but he bottled it. So it’s on him, not me.’
