Harry Redknapp impressed I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! viewers as he refused to watch his female co-stars in the jungle shower – because he only wants to see his wife in a bikini.
The football manager, who has been married to his wife Sandra for 51 years, wanted to head down to the shower himself, but hesitated when he learned that some of the girls were going that way.
Nick Knowles overheard and asked Redknapp if he wanted to go, and he replied: “I would have done.”
He later said, in the Bush Telegraph: “It don’t interest me that’s for sure.
“There’s only one person I want to see in a bikini having a shower and that’s my wife.”
His comments warmed viewers’ hearts, with many calling him a “gentleman”.
One wrote on Twitter: “Harry Redknapp speaking about his wife actually melts me #ImACeleb.”
Given the task of eating a sheep’s brain, he said: “I struggle to eat the food in the jungle that we get into camp.
“I don’t think I’ve really eaten anything much, so this is going to be difficult for me.
“I’ve got to do it. I’ve got the grandkids watching. I can’t let them down.”
