Harry Redknapp jets out to Australia ahead of I'm A Celebrity 2018

Harry Redknapp has jetted out to Australia to appear in I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here.

The former Tottenham and Portsmouth manager is set to appear on the popular ITV show, as revealed by the Mirror last month.

Redknapp will follow a long list of football stars to appear in the jungle, including Neil Ruddock, Jimmy Bullard and Wayne Bridge.

He has previously remained tight-lipped about his involvement but gave his game away when he was spotted at Heathrow Airport on Saturday.

Redknapp even jokingly tried to cover his face from photographers as he arrived ahead of his flight to Brisbane.

He was joined by his chaperone as he made his way through to departures ahead of the long-haul flight.

He didn’t deny he was set for I’m A Celeb when pushed recently and revealed how he planned to prepare – by sleeping in the New Forest.

Redknapp is among the early favourites for the show, despite the official line-up not yet being released.

He snapped back and urged Neville to do his homework before questioning his managerial record while at Valencia.

The row continued with Redknapp vowing to hit some golf balls with Neville’s face on them.
