Holly Willoughby is reduced to the verge of tears when Harry Redknapp admits he “can’t let his grandkids down” during I’m A Celebrity’s first eating trial of the series.

Harry, who has struggled with the exotic cuisine in camp, says he is going to find it difficult but vows to do it for the sake of his family.

A sneak preview of tonight’s show, released by ITV, shows the ex-football manager and Noel Edmonds having to take on the dreaded Bushtucker challenge.

Harry tells hosts Holly and Declan Donnelly: “I’ve struggled to eat the food in the camp.

“I don’t think I’ve really eaten anything, so this is going to be difficult.”

Holly asks him: “Do you think you’ll be able to do it?”

“I’ve got to do it,” he replies. “I’ve got the grandkids at home watching. I can’t let them down.”

Holding back tears, an emotional Holly says: “Oh Harry, you’re going to make me cry.”

Asked how he feels about the revolting dish, Noel says: “I’m trying to engage in what I call Corneal Realignment Protocol — CRAP for short — in which you visualise something other than what you’re looking at.

“So I’m seeing a very large walnut that will be chewy.”

Holly asks: “Is it helping?” to which the veteran TV presenter answers: “No.”

She then offers a word of encouragement, saying: “It’s a delicacy in many parts.”

Harry quips: “Not in Stepney, it ain’t,” to laughs from the hosts.

Watch Harry and Noel take on the trial tonight on ITV at 9:30pm.
