Huge EastEnders star ‘in talks to appear on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’
Danielle Harold is reportedly in talks to appear on the upcoming series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
Danielle’s character Lola Pearce died from brain cancer on the soap in May this year as part of a gripping storyline and now the star could be heading into the jungle.
‘Danielle is at the height of her career and in demand after her moving storyline on EastEnders, but she’s really caught the eye of ITV bosses to appear in the upcoming series of the jungle,’ a source told The Sun.
‘As well as being a talented actress with a huge fanbase, Danielle has a fun personality with a wicked sense of humour, which makes her the ideal campmate for the show.
‘It could propel her into superstardom at an exciting time in her acting journey.
‘Conversations are under way and producers are trying to lure her with a lucrative deal.’
Danielle cried as she picked up the Serial Drama Performance Award at the National Television Awards on Tuesday.
She appeared genuinely stunned as she made her way onto the stage at The O2 in London after her portrayal of brain tumour victim Lola’s final days saw her scoop the accolade ahead of Emmerdale’s Dominic Brunt (Paddy Kirk) and Coronation Street stars Charlotte Jordan and Maureen Lipman, who play Daisy Midgeley and Evelyn Plummer respectively.
Accepting the award from Michelle Collins – who excitedly shouted ‘Yes’ when she read out Danielle’s name, the actress said: ‘I literally… I really didn’t prepare anything,
‘I thought this is the biggest, biggest, biggest shock and I can’t believe I’m standing in front of the O2.
‘I just want to say literally every single person who had an input into this storyline and the research, guys this is for you.
‘Please give money to Brain Tumour Research UK, they need it so, so much, they really do.
‘I just want to take a minute to thank all the cast and Chris, and everyone who supported me, Julia Crampsie who brought me into the show, guys I love you so much without your support I couldn’t do this, thank you so much.’
Earlier in the evening, the TV Interview honour went to The Graham Norton Show but unlike category rivals Louis Theroux, Piers Morgan and Chris and Rosie Ramsay, the host wasn’t at the ceremony to be able to accept the accolade in person
The Traitors won the Reality Competition prize, while the third season of Happy Valley landed the Returning Drama honour.
The evening’s first award, the Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award, was presented to Gogglebox.
