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.”
