Bookies favourite Harry Redknapp is crowned winner of I’m A Celebrity 2018 followed by Emily Atack in second place

FOOTY manager Harry Redknapp has been crowned winner of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here 2018. He’s survived weeks in the Australian jungle and has been the bookies favourite since entering.

The winner was announced this evening (December 9) live on ITV. The final follows the famous ‘Celebrity Cyclone’ challenge that saw the four celebs attempting to climb an extremely slippery ramp for stars.

The 71-year-old had the audience in tears last week after he was reunited with his wife Sandra Harris. It was a segment in the show where relatives or friends of the campmates would surprise them in the camp.

Before entering the jungle, Harry told ITV producers: “This is something different in my life. How would I feel if I won? I don’t know what you have to do to win! I want to have fun and see what happens.”

Redknapp is the former manager of Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham. He claimed that going into the jungle would be “easier than being the boss of a losing football team”.

Also fighting for the crown was John Barrowman, an actor and entertainer known for his role in BBC One’s Doctor Who. Also battling it out for top prize was Inbetweeners actor Emily Atack.

Harry also said before entering: “My wife thinks I am mad. She has seen the show and she has told me I should watch it before I do it. My son, Jamie, thinks I am definitely not the full shilling!”
