Davina McCall fangirls as Dwayne Johnson finally tweets her

Earlier this month, Davina McCall opened up about her love and admiration for Hollywood star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

Davina confessed to regularly tweeting him in a bid to be noticed by her idol, although she went on to insist that she was not looking to steal him from his long-term girlfriend.

Dwayne responded to the comments in a recent interview and now Davina has finally had her wish of a tweet from The Rock granted, with the actor taking to social media last night to send the star well-wishes.

Responding to a clip from This Morning that saw Davina gush about how excited her 11-year-old son, Chester, is that Dwayne might know who she is, the star wrote: “Haha I just saw this story last week. Yes, of course Davina I know who you are, tell your son I said hello and I’m raising a glass of tequila in your honor tonight;) Cheers”.

Clearly in awe, Davina replied: “Can’t quite believe this! Such a huge fan. Chester fell apart when he saw you mentioned him too! Thank you! Keep doing what you’re doing ! We are huge fans!


“P.S. #dwayneforpresident [sic]”.

She also retweeted his message to her own profile, adding: “Holy s*** balls… This just happened” alongside the crying with laughter emoji.

Davina initially made her fangirl revelation in a chat on the podcast Is It Just Me? with former Glamour editor Jo Elvin.

She said at the time: “I think Dwayne Johnson is hardworking, gives more than is expected, funny… I want to meet him but in a sad, fan way. He’s so big, I’d have to climb up his thigh.

“I’m literally sending him messages all the time.

“I have a blue tick next to my name so I’m sort of thinking, ‘Do you think Dwayne Johnson is going to look at his tweets and go, ‘Oh hang on, there’s a blue tick from a British girl, I’m gonna click on her. And oh, she seems like a nice person, I’m going to answer her’?”

Later, Davina was forced to take to Twitter to deny that she was after Dwayne in a romantic way, sharing a headline that said that she wants to “marry” the star and writing: “Funniest story of the year so far ! That I’m secretly messaging @TheRock because I’m newly single! He is v happily married ( I hope) I do think he is fab tho [sic]”.
