Bouncer floors ex-jungle king Danny Miller following row over homophobic comments

Bouncer floors ex-jungle king Danny Miller following row over homophobic comments

Soap star Danny Miller was floored by a bouncer last weekend following a row over homophobic comments.

Footage has emerged of a bouncer flooring ex-jungle king and Emmerdale star Danny Miller following a row over homophobic comments.

Miller, 31, was involved in an incident in Skegness in the early hours of Sunday (27 November).

It came the day of the final of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! - the reality TV show the soap star won last year.

Usually, the winner of the previous year's show is present at the final the following year to crown the new winner.

But when former England Lioness Jill Scott was announced as Queen of the Jungle, Miller was nowhere to be seen.

Instead, it has emerged that he was in the Lincolnshire seaside town for a 'meet and greet' and to turn on the Christmas lights.

But the actor got himself into a spot of bother, as footage in the late-night complex the Hive shows Miller being knocked to the ground by the bouncer.

It is claimed that Miller was sticking up for a friend who was reportedly targeted with homophobic abuse.

The Hive have said that security staff at the venue had intervened but were apparently not aware that Miller was standing up for a pal.

The situation subsequently escalated, as shown by the clip, presumably filmed by someone in the club.

Miller's representatives were approached for comment on Wednesday (30 November).

Miller was pushed to the ground by a bouncer.

One clubber saw the whole situation unfold. Quarry worker Brandon Driver, 20, said: "I was just out with some of my mates for the night and I was the only person to get out my camera quick enough to film what happened.

"I don't know if [Miller] was injured. It was a hard slam against the wall though, and he did seem to hit his head."

The Hive, the venue where the incident took place, said: "We are aware of the incident and the initial details are as follows.

"We stress that these are initial findings and investigations are still ongoing.

"Danny was in a booth enjoying the evening with some friends. Some clubbers were allowed in the booth from time to time to take pictures with Danny.

"At some point a clubber, who had come into the booth, was at first joking, but then became verbally abusive to a member of Danny's party and made some very disturbing homophobic comments.

Onlookers filmed the incident.

They continued: "The member of the party was clearly distressed and Danny tried to calm the situation down.

"The door staff proceeded to remove the offending individual but he continued to make homophobic comments.

"Some members of the door-staff team were unaware that Danny was in fact standing up for one of his party against homophobic comments and this sadly led to an unfortunate escalation of the situation."

Despite not being in Australia, Miller offered his congratulations to Jill Scott on Instagram, saying many votes came from his household.
