Hate, not Love, in the Wild

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

TV pre­sen­ter Dar­ren Mcmullen was threat­ened by a ma­chine gun wield­ing Costa Ri­can drug lord when film­ing for ITV2’S new dat­ing show Love in the Wild.

The 29-year-old re­vealed how the na­tive thug picked a fight with him deep in the Costa Ri­can jun­gle.

He said: “I was in a bar with some of the crew when this big bloke came up to me and asked me to go out­side. I ig­nored him and he dis­ap­peared.

“A few hours later, I was out on the ve­randa when he started yelling at me. As I walked to­wards him, sev­eral goons jumped out from be­hind the cars.

“I wanted to stand my ground but one of our cam­era guys saw him reach­ing for a weapon and car­ried me away.

“Not only did the guy have a ma­chine gun, he also had a ma­chete and a hand gun. I later dis­cov­ered he was a lo­cal drugs lord. I think I had a nar­row es­cape.”

Dar­ren presents the show, which brings 10 cou­ples to­gether in the jun­gle with hopes of find­ing love, on Wed­nes­days at 9pm on ITV2.
