I’m A Celebrity star Harry Redknapp’s son Jamie wants to boot him out of the jungle – so he can be reunited with his mother.
The former football manager gushed to his campmates about how he calls wife Sandra 10 times a day and likened his relationship to ‘“winning the lottery”.
And Jamie says his mum – who has been married to Harry for 54 years – desperately misses the jungle favourite when he is away.
Football pundit Jamie said: “I was actually really surprised when I found out he was going to be on it because he didn’t tell me, I read it in the paper.
“He was like: “If I had told you, you would have told me off. I’m going to try and vote him out.
"I want to get him to come home and see my mum and get him out of there.

“My mum is more nervous than anything as she misses him whenever they are apart.”
During a chat with Fleur East, 31, and Sair Khan, 30, Harry, who has two sons with Sandra, both 71, said: “Even when I’m out I ring her 10 times a day.
"She’s my life. I’m a bit scared, getting a bit older. I love her too much, if anything happened it would just kill me.
“We just get on so well, I only want to be with her. I can never wait to see her.
“Jamie says “you’ve won the lottery”.’
The couple met at a dance above London’s East End pub the Two Puddings more than 50 years ago, when Harry was just 16.

They went on to have two sons together; retired footballer Jamie, 45, and Mark, 48, a model.
But Jamie insists he would “never” do a reality show because he likes “privacy”.
He said: “I would never do that I’m a Celeb or any other kind of reality show. It’s not my thing. I like my privacy. I’ve got no problem with people doing it, it’s just not for me.”
Harry’s stories about his celebrity encounters have been a hit with viewers and the campmates.
He hilariously recalled how he accidentally snubbed two members of the royal family on two separate occasions after failing to recognise them.
He told his campmates how he had encounters with Prince Harry, 34, and Princess Beatrice, 30, completely unbeknownst to him at the time.

And Jamie said: “He doesn’t mind being around famous people.”
One person Harry is yet to talk about is his favourite former player George Best who died aged 59 in 2005 following a battle with alcoholism.
And Jamie added: “I was such a fan George Best. He played for Bournemouth for a short while and he lived in our house actually. He was a genius.
“He never actually taught me any football skills but I wish he had.
"My dad always said he was the greatest player ever.
"He said he was so much better than anybody else, but also the most complete gentleman.
“It’s such a shame what happened to him. If he probably played now it would be a totally different story.”
