Winner of last year’s ITV’s ‘I’m a Celebrity’ said he wouldn’t be saying ‘get me out of here’ when he switched on Skegness festive illuminations .
Danny Miller drew a huge crowd of families to the outside of the Hildreds shopping centre on Saturday afternoon for the annual switch-on of the town’s main Christmas tree and the lights in Lumley Road and the High Street.
The appearance of the Emmerdale star was part of the two-day Holly Jolly Christmas weekend, incorporating a two-day Christmas market.
When asked if he would be saying ‘Get me Out of Here’, he told Lincolnshire World, “Not at all – get me in here. I love Skegness.”
"I’ve been here three or four times and love it here.
"It’s a beautiful little place and I’m very happy to be here to turn on the Christmas lights.”
Danny took his family along, including his baby son Albert. He said: “This is his first proper Christmas as I was away for a lot of it last year.
"Santa Claus is behind me so he’s much more interested in that.
Holly Jolly Christmas was a joint effort by a new Skegness Switch-on Committee, including Skegness Carnival Committee, the Hildreds Centre and Skegness Town Council, with additional sponsorship by Taj Bola of the Hive.
After the switch-on of the Christmas tree, provided by Skegness Town Councilthere were fireworks from the top of The Hive on Grand Parade.
