He told The Sun: “There have been moments where I’ve thought, ‘You’re on the edge’. People say, ‘Your dad is so lovely. He’s so funny’.

“But he can lose it sometimes. In a dressing room I’ve seen him lose it and start throwing things.

“I was a bit worried that after a week or two he might go, ‘I don’t know if I need this’. But he’s stuck it out.”

The former England player – who divorced wife Louise Redknapp in December 2017 after 19 years of marriage – joked his dad has acted like dating app Tinder for him at times following Harry’s conversation with fellow campmate Emily Atack, who admitted she had a crush on Jamie.

Harry has snubbed a number of meats served up to him and fellow campmates in the jungle, which has resulted in The Vamps guitarist James McVey donating some of his vegetables to the football manager.

And Jamie admitted his father can be fussy when it comes to food.

Last month, Jamie said he wanted to vote his dad off the show so he can be reunited with his wife Sandra.

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.’

But it seems Jamie and Sandra are going to have to wait a little longer to see Harry, as he’s best-priced 4/11 with Sky Bet to win the series, followed by Emily Atack at 11/2.
