Jamie Redknapp wants to vote his father Harry Redknapp off of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! – so he can be reunited with his wife.
The 71-year-old football manager is currently competing on the ITV reality show, but his son Jamie is determined to see him leave the jungle as early as possible, because Jamie’s mother Sandra – who has been married to Harry for 54 years – misses him.
Jamie told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: “I was actually really surprised when I found out he was going to be on it because he didn’t tell me, I read it in the paper.
“He was like, ‘If I had told you, you would have told me off.’
“I’m going to try and vote him out. I want to get him to come home and see my mum and get him out of there. My mum is more nervous than anything as she misses him whenever they are apart.”
His comments come after Harry admitted on the show that he calls his wife “10 times a day” when he’s out of the house, because he’s “scared” of something happening to either of them now that they’re older.
Speaking to singer Fleur East and actress Sair Khan, Harry said: “Even when I’m out I ring her 10 times a day. She’s my life. I’m a bit scared, getting a bit older.
“I love her too much, if anything happened it would just kill me.
“We just get on so well, I only want to be with her. I can never wait to see her. Jamie says, ‘You’ve won the lottery.'”
On Saturday night’s show, Harry melted viewers’ hearts as he refused to watch his female co-stars in the jungle shower – because he only wants to see his wife in a bikini.
Harry wanted to head down to the shower himself, but hesitated when he learned that some of the girls were going that way.
Nick Knowles overheard and asked Redknapp if he wanted to go, and he replied: “I would have done.”
Fleur East then asked Harry to accompany her to the shower, as well as Rita Simons, and he appeared confused and unsure how to respond.
While in the jungle shower, Harry stood with his back to the girls as they stood under the shower in their swimsuits, and he let Sair Khan also jump into the shower before him.
He later said, in the Bush Telegraph: “It don’t interest me that’s for sure.
“There’s only one person I want to see in a bikini having a shower and that’s my wife.”
