I’m A Celebrity: Harry Redknapp’s badly timed confession about running over wife

Harry Redknapp made a very badly timed confession about running over his wife on tonight’s I’m A Celebrity.

The former Spurs and West Ham manager accidentally dragged poor Sandra along a road by his Range Rover in a freak accident.

Sandra, 69, is said to have trapped her foot inside the motor as the former Premier League manager set off after dropping her at the shops.

Witnesses described how she screamed with agony as she was pulled along by Harry’s car in the bizarre incident as her coat got caught in the door while her foot was still in the footwell.

Harry thought that the perfect time to confess all this was at the start of his first trial, Hell Holes, while the celebs were sat in a car.

As they started moving off, Harry said: "I used to think I was a good driver but I had a nightmare and ran over my wife one day.

"She got out the car and I thought she’d crossed the road and I pulled forward and she fell into the road and a bus stopped literally yards away and the most amazing part of the story probably, my grand-daughter is sitting on top of the bus and sees all of this. Unreal."

Luckily DIY SOS presenter Nick Knowles was behind the wheel of the vehicle during the task.

"Shall I turn the engine off so everyone can hear you scream," said Nick as the Football Manager prepared to put his hand in the hell hole.

Harry had to retrieve tokens of various sizes from the mystery holes while racing up a sandy track.

After navigating through the jungle critters in the holes, Harry had to pass the tokens over to Nick.

He was unaware that they contained mud crabs and spiders until they started attacking.

Nah Harry Redknapp having a nightmare thinking he ran over his wife has done me bittttts," added another.

A third joked: "As scary as jumping out of a helicopter at 12,000ft is, it could be worse. You could be Harry Redknapp’s wife & he’s driving."
