WATCH: Harry Redknapp has revealed the one footballer he would most like to bring into the jungle with him

And amazingly, it's not Niko Kranjcar.

People were absolutely chuffed to hear that 'Mr Deadline Day' himself Harry Redknapp would be heading to the jungle for this year's season of I'm A Celebrity, and he has not disappointed so far.

He has clearly thrown himself right into the deep end, and we look forward to seeing him take part in some hilarious Bushtucker Trials in the near future.

And as part of the show, the football manager has been answering a few questions from fans to pass some time in the jungle...

One fan asked the Englishman if he could bring one footballer that he's managed into the jungle with him, who would it be?

And to the surprise of every single person watching, the answer did not include the names: Jermain Defoe, Niko Kranjcar or Peter Crouch.

Instead, his answer was none other than Rio Ferdinand.

Have a look below to see why:

Now that he's said it, we would quite like to see how Rio would get on. We reckon he'd be great craic altogether.

Maybe next year's show?

Fair play to Harry for getting so involved in the whole thing. At the age of 71, it really is great to see!
