Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp will be heading to Australia for the next series of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!.

Insider information has revealed he will be appearing alongside The Chase’s Ann Hegerty and Coronation Street’s Sair Khan, the Mirror reports.

A source told the Mirror: “Harry is never anything less than good value. He’s had a long, interesting career and knows a lot of famous people. He’ll be fun to watch.”

Redknapp has previously managed Bournemouth, West Ham, Portsmouth, Southampton, Tottenham and QPR. His last job was at Birmingham City who sacked him in 2017.

The 71-year-old might be concerned about heading to the jungle, given he has previously said he couldn’t manage a day without his wife, Sandra.

He said in a past interview: “I wouldn’t cope. I’m useless. She treats me like a baby. She does everything. I can’t cook, I can’t make a coffee, I can’t do nothing.”

The show will begin in mid-November on ITV and will be hosted by Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby, who is standing in for Ant McPartlin.

Ant will continue to take a break from all television and presenting roles after being involved in a drink driving accident and entering rehab earlier in the year. He was banned from the road for 20 months and fined £86,000 after pleading guilty to driving whilst over twice the legal limit.

It will be the first time in 15 years that the show isn’t fronted by both Ant and Dec.
