Viewers rushed to Twitter to praise Harry for his sentimental side.

"Every woman needs to find a man like Harry Redknapp #husbandgoals," one tweeted.

"Aaaaaaawwww the way Harry talks about his wife, true love right there," another added.

A third viewer wrote: "I love Harry Redknapp so much."

A documentary gives a glimpse inside the East End boozer where Harry met the love of his life.

The former football manager was seen telling campmate John Barrowman the sweet tale of how he met his wife, Sandra, earlier this week.

The pair met in popular pub the Two Puddings, which was a thriving hub of social activity in the Swingin’ Sixties.

And a documentary released in 2016 took a look behind its doors.

The film was made by director Rob West, who decided to delve into the history after reading the memoirs of pub landlord Eddie Johnson.

The film, called Tales from the Two Puddings, was all about Eddie’s experiences behind the bar at the famous Stratford boozer.

Rob told the Newham Recorder: "Eddie didn’t see much of the Swinging’ Sixties, he missed that, but instead he experienced the Sixties through the pub."

His film covers many of the interesting stories to come from the pub and also features an interview with Barrie Keeffe, who wrote the 1980 gangster film The Long Good Friday.

Rob added: "He used to work for the Stratford Express and he used to go to the pub at lunchtime with a whole host of journalists.

"He used to pick up a lot of the stories that appear in The Long Good Friday. Helen Mirren’s character was based on Eddie’s wife, Shirley. If you look at photos of the Two Puddings she really was a glamorous woman."

The documentary focuses on the murky history of the pub as well as its glossy side, by looking at the sort of characters that frequented it.

On last night’s I’m A Celeb, Harry revealed that he met Sandra in the Two Puddings while he was having a drink with his friend, goalkeeper Macca.

Sandra and a friend were dancing around their handbags when Harry and his pal decided to go over and chat them up.

Telling the story to John 54 years after meeting his wife, he said: "Me and my mate Macca, he was a goal keeper for West Ham, saw these two lovely girls and I said to Macca shall we have a dance with those two.

"Macca is a good looking geezer and I look back on it now and think Sandra must have seen us both coming over and thought ‘I hope I aint got him’ and she went for me, 54 years later we’re still going strong.

"And Macca ended up as an undertaker so really Sandra had the better deal in the long term."
