Hilarious Harry Redknapp already had fans on his side, but the I’m A Celebrity star has won even more hearts after his confession about his love for wife Sandra.

During last night’s episode, Harry, 71, got emotional as he opened up about their 51-year marriage.

Talking to campmates Fleur East and Sair Khan, he confessed: “When you get older… I do love her too much, and if anything happened it would just kill me.”

When Fleur asked him what the “secret” was to such a long, happy relationship, he added: “We just get on so well. I only want to be with her. Saturday nights we would go out, have something to eat. I could never wait to see her, we’re great friends.

“If I’m out, I ring her ten times a day. It’s crazy.”

Fans were welling up at his revelations, dubbing the football coach “adorable” for his sweet words. Some even declared they had a “crush” on him!

Harry first met Sandra when they were 17 years old, at The Two Puddings pub in London’s East End.

They married on June 30 in 1967 and they have two sons, ex-footballer Jamie, 45, and 48-year-old Mark.
