Danny Miller breaks silence after I’m A Celebrity snub as Jill Scott takes over the crown
He may have been King of The Jungle, but Emmerdale actor Danny Miller was not quite ready to hand over his crown just yet.
The soap star was noticeably absent from Sunday night’s I’m A Celeb finale, which saw Lioness Jill Scott crowned Queen of The Jungle having won against Owen Warner and disgraced MP Matt Hancock.
Fans had speculated that Danny would hand his crown to Jill, as was long the tradition with the ITV reality show.
This hasn’t happened since 2017, when the previous winner Scarlett Moffat handed Georgia “Toff” Toffolo the floral crown in an emotional moment.
Despite this, fans were still keen to see Danny carry on the tradition and several took to social media following his absence.
One wrote: "Why didn't Danny Miller crown Jill? #ImACeleb."
Another added: "Thought Danny Miller may have been there to crown Jill?"
Whilst fans were disappointed, it has now been revealed that previous winners were only present during the final as they were filming the show’s spin-off series, Get Me Out Of Here Now, for ITV2.
Following the show’s cancellation in 2020, former winners have not been included in the I’m A Celeb finale, however some fans had wrongly assumed the absense was a byproduct of Covid rules.
There was hope that this would change with the announcement of new spin-off, 'm a Celebrity…The Daily Drop, however not long after the show aired ITV announced that the series would not be returning.
Despite being unable to attend the live finale, actor Danny Miller did congratulate Lioness Jill Scott via social media.
In a Tweet, the 31 year old wrote: “Deserved winner @JillScottJS8 ! A pleasure to hand over the crown to you! Enjoy it!"
Danny, who portrays Aaron Livesy in Emmerdale, has also spoken about other campmates from the current series – most noticeably, former Health Secretary Matt Hancock.
Appearing on Good Morning Britain earlier this month, he told viewers that he was keen to see the MP punish for breaking lockdown rules during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I think he needs to just accept the fact that he is going to be everyone’s toy.”: He said.
"This year, I think regardless of how entertaining he is, [Hancock] needs to accept that what he has put us through. I think the public are going to say, This is what we are going to put you through”
The actor was greatly affected by the pandemic and filmed his series of I’m A Celeb in Grwych Castle, Wales during the national lockdown.
Alongside him were Corrie actor Simon Gregson and singer Frankie Bridge, who also made up the final three.
Speaking about his time in the jungle, Danny said that he’d particularly proud of musician Naughty Boy after he took on the first challenge – calling him “very entertaining…”.
