Harry’s tears for Jungle mate Sandra
HARRY Redknapp broke down in tears as he was reunited with his wife Sandra in the I’m A Celebrity jungle camp last night.
The ex-football manager wandered to Snake Rock to find Sandra sitting on a log waiting for him.
She 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.”
Spotting her, Harry, 71, exclaimed: “Nooo!” and hugged his wife tightly.
Harry asked if Sandra had been watching the show and Sandra said: “Of course I have” – adding for viewers: “I’ve really missed him, he’s my life.”
Harry said of the attention she had been getting: “I said she’d hate it really, she’s so shy.” He told her: “It’s like being in prison and you’ve given me a prison visit. I’m not going to let you go, you’re not going anywhere. You can come in my hammock!”
Sandra told him it was “not long now” until the show finished, but by then Harry was in tears.
He said: “I can’t help this, it is not like me. I don’t normally cry, I’m pretty old school. Are you pleased to see me?”
Sandra answered: “Of course. I got a bit sad the other day, I got a bit tearful because I missed you.”
Harry said: “It’s funny, 54 years and we just don’t want to be apart, that’s done me up today. I’ve missed her so much. I love you so much.”
The other campmates also enjoyed emotional reunions.
Fleur East met her sister Keisha, Emily Atack got time with her mother Kate and John Barrowman’s husband Scott also went into the jungle, as well as James McVey’s girlfriend Kirstie.
The campmates and guests were later introduced to each other in Croc Creek.
The king or queen of the I’m A Celebrity jungle will be revealed tomorrow night on ITV at 9pm. A tearful Harry hugs his wife Sandra last night and right, he endures jungle trial
