The initial 10 contestants joining this year's "I'm A Celebrity" have now been confirmed by ITV, and while nine of them were leaked to the press ahead of time, John Barrowman's presence on the line-up came as a surprise to fans of the show.
Redknapp does appear to know the troubles that await him in terms of I'm A Celebrity's often meagre diet, but he is not too fussed about it as he regularly skips breakfast and lunch. Thank god they do, because it's a ratings blockbuster for ITV, but I don't get it. Harry, you're one of my sporting heroes, you're going to munch kangaroo testicles, really?'
"There's nothing tougher than being a manager of a football team when things aren't going well", the 71-year-old said.
"Barrowman is head and shoulders above his rivals in the I'm A Celeb outright victor betting at 11/4, with Anne Hegerty and Sair Khan his nearest challengers at 7/1". You haven't got many friends when it's not going well as a football manager.
Redknapp said he will not mind missing meals but will struggle to be without his wife.
I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here begins this Sunday night on November 18 on ITV with hosts Dec and - for this year - Holly Willoughby. We do everything together.
