Harry Redknapp springs I’m A Celebrity surprise as wife Sandra flies out to join him

While he seems to have been thriving in the I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of here jungle camp, Harry Redknapp has made no secret of the fact that he sorely misses his wife Sandra.

It looks as if she won’t be missing her too much longer as it has just been revealed that his wife of 54 years is jetting out to Australia to join him.

Harry’s official Twitter account – which is being managed by someone else in his absence – first posted a cryptic clue with a photo of a pile of luggage and then a few hours later revealed the surprise: “You guessed right! Sandra is on her way to Australia!”

Let’s hope Sandra recognises him. Harry’s lost a good deal of weight on the enforced rice and beans diet. The former football manager even made a quip during a task in which he and Noel Edmonds had to eat things like a sheep’s brain, saying it’s the most food he’d eaten all week.
