Emmerdale actor Danny Miller is quickly becoming one of the nation's favourites on this year's I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!.
The star has so far formed great friendships with Arlene Phillips, Naughty Boy and David Ginola. But after the Aaron Dingle actor, 30, was the first to be voted to take on the gruelling eating challenge, former I'm A Celeb star Nicola McLean claimed he could be "playing a game".
"I'm not sure whether Danny is already playing a game because I cannot see if you are that sort of… if you gag a lot, if you're sick, you've already been sick twice in the helicopter and swallowed it, why would you carry on saying this?" the 40 year old told the Daily star.
"Of course you know you're gonna get the eating trial."
Now, a source has exclusively told OK! that Danny's fiancee Steph is feeling hurt by Nicola's comments, given that "she doesn't even know him".
“Steph is really unhappy with Nicola McLean, who is saying he’s got a game plan," the source said.
"Danny is the most genuine guy and Nicola doesn’t even know him."
They added: "Steph has really taken it to heart and she finds what Nicola said hurtful because the only reason he’s doing the show is for his family.”
OK! approached Danny Miller's representative for comment.
Nicola went on to say that she won't be upset if Danny was "playing a game".

The former glamour model explained: "I don't know if he wanted the eating trial cause it is the best trial to get.
"It is disgusting but it is the best one cause it's the one people remember.
"I'm not upset if he's playing the game but I can't see that's he's not."
"The soap stars are so popular, Danny wouldn't have gotten voted for the first trial had he not gone on about the fact that he was sick so I think it could be kind of a clever game," she shared further.
Despite this, I'm A Celeb viewers backed Danny all the way after he won the horrific trial when he was up against DJ Snoochie Shy.
