Bookies announce Harry Redknapp is red hot favourite to win I'm A Celeb

He's apparently "impossible to beat"

Harry Redknapp is the red hot favourite to win this year's I'm A Celebrity, according to bookies William Hill.

Football manager Harry, 71, has made the entire nation fall in love with him thanks to his witty anecdotes, his enduring love for Sandra, and his bravery and humour when facing disgusting Bushtucker Trials.

And now, William Hill have taken three times as much money on Harry winning the show as they have done on the next best backed contestant, Nick Knowles.

The bookies have placed Harry's odds of winning the show at 1/2.

William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said: "With just a few days to go, Harry looks virtually impossible to beat.

"If people are voting for him to win with the same fervour as they are backing him, he is a racing certainty."

As it stands, the odds suggest that Emily Atack is Harry's closest rival as she's the 5/1 second favourite ahead of Fleur East at 7/1.

Harry left I'm A Celebrity viewers in tears on Tuesday night after he became emotional while receiving a letter from his wife Sandra.
