It’s official: Harry Redknapp will be a contestant on the new series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, starting November 18th on ITV.
The former Spurs, West Ham, Bournemouth, Portsmouth and QPR manager arrived in Australia on Sunday and will compete alongside such stars as Noel Edmonds and John Barrowman.
Football personalities to have previously appeared on the show include Dennis Wise, Jimmy Bullard and John Fashanu.
Needless to say, there were plenty of jokes as Harry Redknapp was confirmed for I’m a Celebrity 2018:
With Harry Redknapp in the jungle, I'm a Celeb will be relegated to ITV2 by Christmas.

Harry Redknapp says hes never watched an episode of Im a Celebrity. On past form that means hes watched the lot, got the boxsets on dvd and has a couple of dogs called Ant and Dec who have £60k dingo dollars in a mysterious bank account in Belize.

“Witchetty Grub, Harry?”
Redknapp: “Triffic, triffic player.”
