    Whats does the future hold for Danny Miller and David Ginola?

    After recent episodes viewers took to social media to insist that Emmerdale actor Danny and retired footballer David need to get their own show after the series.

    One wrote: “Petition for David and Danny to have their own show next year.”

    Another said: “I actually love Danny and David together. 100% need their own show after #ImaCeleb.”

    A third added: “David and Danny really need their own show after #ImaCeleb. David and Danny the daytime chat show, the quiz show or the football show.”

    And someone even predicted: “The final two HAS to be David and Danny… and then they need to get their own TV show.”

    Last night Danny, 30, was reduced to tears as he read David, 54, his letter from home. David was one of the celebs who did not receive their letter in the wifi code challenge days ago – but all that changed during Thursday’s episode.

    Danny Miller previously admitted he and fiance had difficulty getting pregnant

    Danny admitted the couple had been struggling to get pregnant earlier this year.

    They even considered IVF after they were told the likelihood of them getting pregnant was slim.

    He said: "It was unbelievable [finding out] because we'd been told it probably wasn't going to happen for us naturally, so we just feel so incredibly lucky.

    "We're very humbled by it as we know not everyone is as lucky."

    Danny added their baby news would mean putting back their wedding plans a bit as they would like to get married abroad.

    “I never realised the happiness a child brings you. Thank you @danny_b_miller for showing me true happiness and being the best support imaginable.”

    More on Danny Miller's relationship

    Danny and fiancée Steph Jones met as children at school but have only been in a romantic relationship together for two years.

    Celebrating their engagement news on Loose Women, Danny explained how the two met, which was through primary school.

    He said: “I was already at the primary school and Steph came into primary school after about a year that I had been there.

    “It was just… you know, any new kid coming into school when you're that age is really kind of exciting, but then when Steph stepped in… I just kind of got on with her straight away and fancied her straight away.”

    He went on to explain how he jokingly “pestered” Steph for a year before she agreed to dating him.

    Then like most childhood romances it ended, but the two decided to rekindle their romance again back in 2019.

    Danny proposed to Steph in St Lucia in January 2021 during a romantic candlelight dinner which was part of his 30th birthday trip.

    The couple live together with their baby and share multiple dogs together.

    I’m A Celeb in ‘fix’ row

    The show is embroiled in a fresh fix row after furious fans noticed the striking thing that all three finalists have in common.

    David Ginola narrowly missed out on a spot in tonight’s grand finale when he was voted out in yesterday’s show.

    This leaves Frankie Bridge, Simon Gregson, and Danny Miller to fight it out to be named Queen or King of the Castle.

    And it didn’t take long for cynical viewers to notice that all three campers are ITV stars.

    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.

    Finally, Frankie is a Loose Woman – with her ITV co-workers previously revealing the secret signal she makes during the reality show’s live segments to let them know she’s thinking of them.

    Taking to social media after Ginola was booted out last night, one angry fan wrote: “I’m a celebrity most definitely fixed! Final 3 all from ITV shows! ITV have already picked their winner…”

    Viewers all have the same question about Frankie Bridge

    One person tweeted: “Can anyone believe Frankie hasn’t had her hair done in THREE WEEKS? Straight, glossy, swingy #becauseimworthit.”

    Another said: “How did Frankie keep her hair so shiny & swingy for the last 3 weeks?”

    A third added: “With respect, Frankie Bridge has just left the “castle” Instagram ready! Great skin and hair glowing.”

    Danny Miller’s emotional virtual reunion with family

    Newly-crowned I’m A Celebrity winner Danny Miller became emotional as he was reunited on screen with his fiancee Steph Jones and baby son Albert.

    The Emmerdale actor, 30, was crowned the king of the castle in Sunday night’s final episode of the ITV programme, after braving some 20 days in Gwrych Castle near Abergele in North Wales, where the programme was filmed for a second year.

    He triumphed over Coronation Street’s Simon Gregson, who took second place, and Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge, who came in third.

    Jones and Albert, who is seven weeks old, appeared on ITV’s Lorraine virtually with Miller, who became tearful on seeing them on screen.

    He said: “Darling, I love you so much.”

    Jones said: “We’ve missed you so much darling, we just want you to come home now.”

    Appearing on Good Morning Britain earlier, Miller said: “I’m waiting to go back today to see him (Albert) and can’t wait to put him in my arms and see him for the first time in what seems like a lifetime.”

    Miller, best known for playing fan favourite Aaron Dingle in long-running ITV soap Emmerdale, added: “I mean, fortunately for him he has no idea but unfortunately for me, I’ve missed him. And he won’t know, but I certainly have, and I’ll spend the rest of my life making sure that I make (it) up to him.”

    David G missed his girlfriend while in the castle

    David struggled without his super-hot girlfriend in the castle.

    Asked what was the thing he longed for above all while in Gwrych Castle, David told The Sun: “What I missed most was making love — especially when you do it every day.”

    He added: “In the castle, I missed many things. I missed food, because rice and beans is good for a few days but after two and a half weeks… You know, I don’t think I’m going to eat beans for the rest of my life.

    “The cold was really a massive aspect of life in the castle. I don’t know what you do in your country, but you have so much water. I mean, it’s just amazing. Every day it was rain.”

    ‘I don’t just cry’

    After being crowned, the hosts asked if he had any words for voters and Danny said: “I’m speechless for once. Honestly from the bottom of me heart and me family’s heart thank you so much.

    “This is the best thing that’s happened to me aside from having my son.”

    Speaking before he was announced as the winner, the former Emmerdale actor said of taking part in the show: “The original idea was to show them that I don’t just cry on television.

    “Everyone knows me as that character [Aaron Dingle] so it was my chance to have a laugh and show another side of me.”

    Frankie Bridge: I've learnt how silly I am

    Singer Frankie Bridge has said she enjoyed acting as the "naughty sister" in camp on ITV's I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! The pop star, 32, was first to leave the castle during Sunday night's grand final at Gwrych Castle near Abergele in North Wales.

    Reminiscing on her experience, she said: "If I'm honest I don't think I'll miss the castle… For me the cold was a big thing in Wales, we were cold every day all day.

    "I'll definitely miss being with all the guys and making new memories every day, a time in my life that I'm never going to get to repeat again which is an amazing thing, but also a sad thing in a way, which is a feeling that I didn't know that I would feel when I was in there.

    "I have learnt that I'm really silly and I can be really childish. I just think in that situation it could go either way. You could kind of let your being homesick and fear of trials get on top of you, and sometimes they did.

    "But also you could kind of take the moment and try and laugh as much as possible. I definitely did that – me, Danny (Miller), Snoochie and Matty (Lee), we kind of took on the role as the naughty brothers and sisters in camp, which was really fun.

    "I don't always get to do that at home being a mum of two so I really enjoyed that."

    Fate sealed with a row

    David fate may have been sealed by a row he had with former BBC Breakfast star Louise Minchin in last night’s show.

    He called her bossy and patronising after she complained about campmates who hadn’t been pulling their weight with chores.

    Speaking about his journey after getting evicted he said being on the show was like a “second adoption” by the British public after his welcome to Newcastle United in 1995.

    Stars partied until 5am

    David Ginola led the charge as I’m A Celebrity’s final four partied until 5am after the show.

    He was joined by Danny Miller, Frankie Bridge and Simon Gregson in a knees up at posh hotel Palé Hall in Gwynedd until the small hours.

    And king of the castle Danny looked worse for wear the next day as he conducted interviews following his win.

    The former Emmerdale star, 30, admitted he’d had no sleep and said: “Blame David Ginola.”

    Later, runner-up Simon Gregson, 47, added: “We celebrated in style, we had a very fine red wine of course.”

    A show source said: “The final four more than made up for lost time enjoying food and drink.

    “It was a proper knees-up. They all had to stick around until lunchtime the next day to speak to TV shows like Good Morning Britain and This Morning, then Frankie was due on Loose Women.

    “So as reunions with family had to wait, they decided to make the most of their last night together.”

    Fan reaction to Frankie opening up

    Fans found the honest interaction very emotional and congratulated Frankie for the important conversation.

    One fan wrote: “Frankie is someone you could just sit and listen to talk for ages, she’s so entertaining.”

    And another added: “Frankie’s strength to talk openly about her mental health and to raise awareness, and then Matty’s approach to the conversation, not judging or interrupting her.”

    Frankie’s husband Wayne, who is running her social media while she is in the castle, praised his wife.

    “So proud of Frankie, now and always,” he wrote on Twitter.

    Does the winner of I’m a Celebrity get more money?

    The celebs agree a pay package before they enter the camp.

    Unlike Strictly where all the stars get the same amount of money to take part, campmates on I’m A Celebrity can demand a fee.

    In 2020 Olympian Mo Farah was reported to have pocketed a whopping £300,000 for appearing on the show while professional dancer AJ Pritchard was estimated to have banked a lower fee of £50,000.

    The most highest paid star to appear on the show is believed to be Caitlyn Jenner who reportedly banked £500,000.

    Secret signals

    Frankie Bridge had a secret way of communicating with her son – but no one spotted it.

    The 32-year-old Loose Women star has revealed the sneaky sign, saying she puffed out her cheeks when she knew the camera was on her.

    Appearing live from her accommodation in North Wales, where she show is filmed, she was asked if she sneakily communicated.

    Frankie explained: "My youngster Carter. I asked can I just blow a kiss or something like that – or something a bit more subtle.

    "He decided that my signal for them was this."

    She then puffed out her cheeks – to laughter from her co-stars back in the studio in London.

    Winner’s speech

    After being crowned, the hosts asked if he had any words for voters and Danny said: “I’m speechless for once. Honestly from the bottom of my heart and my family’s heart thank you so much.

    “This is the best thing that’s happened to me aside from having my son.”
