Harry Redknapp reveals how he wants to join EastEnders
Speaking to The Sun, he said: “My ambition for 2021 is to get a part in EastEnders because I’m a real Eastender. I grew up in Poplar, so I have a real affinity with the area.
“I’ve worked out my character and this is the scene…
“Mick Carter and his regular punters are in The Vic. They’re at the bar, having a drink, and one of ’em says ‘ere you heard Redknapp has moved back in the area?’ And another says ‘Nah, he’s moved to that posh Sandbanks.’
“Mick then says, ‘Nah, he’s had enough of it. He’s come back.’
“At this point I come into the pub, they turn around looking shocked and I say, ‘I’ve moved around the corner.’
“Mick then says, ‘Harry is back ’cause we’re starting up a little business. A bit of this, bit of that.’
“I’ve already written the script so now all the show’s bosses need to do is call me up. I’d like to be in it for a year – before they bump me off or something.”
