Harry Redknapp’s adorable comment left Holly Willoughby close to tears during a nasty Bushtucker trial on I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.
The football legend had been forced to hold witchetty grubs, beach worms and a giant burrowing cockroach in his mouth for a few minutes while his mighty emperor, Noel Edmonds, held some similarly vile creepy crawlies in his.
But one comment he made was so adorable it left Holly fighting back tears as she watched him take on some truly grim tasks, all to get enough stars for a slap up meal for camp.
The pair were doing well with seven stars between them, meaning they only had four more to get to claim a hearty dinner for camp.

Holly and Dec introduced the second part of the trial, with Dec joking: "The good news is you don’t have to hold any more critters in your mouth."
Holly chimed in: "The bad news is that to win the final four stars, you need to have a Roman banquet with a jungle twist."
Harry joked about wanting the loo, but sadly the plates and wooden cloches arrived before he could make a quick dash, meaning he and Noel were forced to eat a sheep’s skull each.
At this, the footie manager opened up about his struggles to eat such nasty food, but a comment he made left Holly barely able to hold back her emotions.

He said: "I struggle to eat the food, honestly, in the jungle that we get in camp. I don’t think I’ve really ate anything (much) so this is going to be difficult for me.
"I’ve got to do it. I’ve got the grandkids watching. I can’t let them down."
At this, Holly’s voice cracked as she said: "Oh Harry, you’ve made me cry."
With even nastier bits in store for the both of them, will they take home 11 stars for camp?
I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here airs every day at 9pm and at 9.30pm on Saturdays on ITV.
