Emmerdale star Danny Miller has a famous relative that might just surprise you.
The soap star is currently riding high as a favourite to win this year’s I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here after impressing viewers during a Bush Tucker trial.
On Monday night, the actor ate his way to victory after an eating challenge which left him winning meals for the whole castle.

His dad is none other than famous Manchester entertainer Vince Miller.
The 30-year-old’s father is best known as the 'king of comperes' and was the VIP host at Manchester United for 29 years.
Vince’s main responsibility was interviewing football stars and managers for those in the hospitality suites.
As a result, he has a tight friendship with former Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson.
The entertainer worked alongside the likes of Johnny Mathis, Shirley Bassey, and gave the eulogy at comedian Bernard Manning’s funeral.
He is also a trained singer and comedian.
However, in 2017, the Stockport native was forced to leave the role after putting his arm around a waitress and calling her “love”.
The decision was hugely unpopular and football stars, friends and the public challenged his dismissal.
Later that year, Vince announced his retirement, at the age of 82 and after an incredible 65 years in the entertainment business, at a glittering charity fundraiser organised by his actor son.
He revealed the news on stage at the Once Upon A Smile charity ball at the Hilton Hotel in Manchester.
He said: “It’s been a great journey, I’ve been critical of people who go on too long, so last night was my last night hosting an event, it was an emotional brilliant night and it’s nice to know that you’re appreciated.”
I’m a Celeb star Danny paid tribute to his dad, calling him “the best host in the business”.
