How did he react to finishing second on I’m A Celebrity?

Simon’s emotional reunion with his family comes after the Corrie star finished in second place on this year’s I’m A Celebrity.

Emmerdale‘s Danny Miller was named King of the Castle, while Loose Women panelist Frankie Bridge finished in third place.

Speaking of his time on the show, Simon said: “I didn’t think it was as bad as I thought it would be.”

Prior to being announced as runner-up, Simon told hosts Ant and Dec that he wanted Danny Miller to be King of the Castle. It turns out that Simon got his wishes, but not all of his fans were happy about that.

In fact, many believed Simon to have been the real winner of an I’m A Celebrity victory and let him know in the comments of his reunion video.

“Aww you was our winner,” a third fan told Simon Gregson.

“Definitely should have won,” another of Simon’s followers told the star. “You made the castle what it was this year.”

“Daddy’s home and he IS the king,” another fan declared.

Simon’s fellow campmate, and eventual winner, Danny Miller also shared an emotional reunion he had with his family yesterday – twice!

The King of the Castle was reunited virtually with his partner and baby on Lorraine yesterday morning. He also shared a sweet snap of himself with his baby Albert on Instagram yesterday too.
