A Skegness nightclub has made a public apology after door staff pushed I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! winner Danny Miller against a wall.
Taj Bola – who runs The Hive in the heart of Skegness – said the bouncer is “mortified” about the incident which he labelled a misunderstanding.
It is understood that the Emmerdale star, 31, was defending his close friend who had allegedly been homophobically abused at the nightclub before the bouncer got involved.

Footage published by The Sun now shows the bouncer aggressively pushing the soap star – who won the hugely popular ITV reality show in 2021 – against a wall as he escorted him out of the building.
In the short clip, the soap star can be seen squaring up to security staff inside the late-night complex before he was shoved against the wall and onto the floor.
Onlookers claim Danny was sticking up for his close friend who was targeted with “disturbing” homophobic abuse during their time at the nightclub.
Security staff at the venue were allegedly “unaware” the actor was “standing up” for his friend when the situation escalated.
A spokesperson for The Hive said: “The venue and the door team would like to apologise unreservedly to Danny for the misunderstanding that led to the unfortunate events.
“We hope this does not deflect from what was otherwise a great switch on event for the town.
“Danny really drew in the crowds and made the switch on event one of the best in recent years. Danny enjoyed the Ice Bar and the Lamborghini bar and will hopefully return soon.”
Daily Star has reached out to Danny Miller’s representatives for a comment.
Quarry worker Brandon Dover, 20, was partying in the club and saw the situation unfold.
He 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.”

After the video started to circulate around social media, fans began to speculate why Danny wasn't in Australia to hand over the crown to the new Queen of the Jungle, Jill Scott.
Traditionally, the previous celebrity winner crowns the latest champ of the ITV reality show, but the doting dad broke the rules and decided to remain in England instead.
It has since emerged that the TV hunk attended the Lincolnshire seaside town on Wednesday (November 30) for a ‘meet and greet’ club appearance after he turned on the Christmas lights.
