When Harry met San­dra … tear­ful jun­gle re­union for book­ies’ favourite

Irish Daily Mail - - News - By Susie Coen

HIS touch­ing dec­la­ra­tions of love for his wife over the past three weeks have melted view­ers’ hearts.

And last night Harry Red­knapp saw his beloved San­dra for an emo­tional re­union on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

The for­mer foot­ball boss, 71, be­came tear­ful and told his wife ‘I love you so much’ when she made a sur­prise ap­pear­ance in the Aus­tralian jun­gle.

Spot­ting her perched on a tree stump on the set, Red­knapp shouted ‘No’ in dis­be­lief, be­fore hug­ging her tightly and kiss­ing her.

With tears rolling down his cheeks, he said: ‘I can’t help this. It is not like me. I don’t nor­mally cry. I’m pretty old school.’ Be­fore their re­union, Mrs Red­knapp said: ‘I’ve been mar­ried to Harry for 50 years and not be­ing able to speak to him has been a bit of a night­mare be­cause we speak ev­ery day. I’m re­ally ex­cited to see him.’

Asked if she had been watch­ing the show, she added: ‘Of course I have. I’ve re­ally missed him. He’s my life.’

Ex-Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur boss Red­knapp is the book­ies’ favourite to win the ITV re­al­ity show, which ends on Sun­day night.
