I’m A Celebrity: Harry Redknapp and Nick Knowles have blazing foul-mouthed row

I’m A Celebrity viewers witnessed the most dramatic argument of the series tonight as a blazing row erupted between Harry Redknapp and Nick Knowles.

The former Spurs and West Ham manager clashed with the DIY SOS presenter after the disgusting immunity challenge, Rancid Race.

The four teams competed in five head to head drinking races, which led to an argument over the Galah’s controversial tactics and motivations for wanting to win so badly.

Expert drinker Nick Knowles took it upon himself to take part in nearly all of the races, rather than splitting them equally between his team, claiming: "Winner takes all for this, I want immunity."

This sparked outrage from the other campmates, particularly from fiery Harry, who claimed: "That’s b*ll*cks."

The master tactician did not like being outplayed by Nick, who led his team to victory and secured immunity from the first public vote.

There was a lot of tension back in camp as furious Harry confronted Nick over his actions.

Harry said: "All this cobblers about we don’t care who wins is a load of cobblers. Now let’s all be honest with each other, it’s now dog eats dog otherwise why would Nick go three times when he knows he can’t lose, when really it should have been 2, 2, 1."

Nick argued that he just wanted a meal, but Harry claimed his motivation was to claim immunity.

Harry said: "This is the man who goes to the rugby club and drinks pints of beer for fun, how you going to beat him. We may have not bothered drinking that s***, let him win."

In the Bush Telegraph, Coronation Street star Sair Khan added: "I think it’s the football manager in him, he doesn’t like to be defeated, he said it was an unfair game, how was anyone going to win against Nick."

Trying to defend himself, Nick said: "If it was a swimming challenge, none of us would have beaten Malique."

Harry was not convinced and insisted that the upcoming eviction was playing on everyone’s minds.

He shouted: "Yeah but he wouldn’t go 3 times, he’d go 2, 2, 1 that’s what should have happened, I would have stuck Fleur in 3 times.

"Listen let’s not kid ourselves, when the crunch comes everyone will be walking all over each other because that’s what you wanna do. Everyone wants to win, let’s not kid ourselves."

Talking in the Bush Telegraph, Rita Simons said “We had our first heated debate, some people really want to win and I think Harry just wants people to admit they want to win but not everybody does.”

Talking in camp, the ex-EastEnders actress said: "There is nothing wrong in wanting to win and that’s been made this shame, if you’re fighting, I couldn’t give a s***, if I wanted to win I’d genuinely say."

Still ranting in the Bush Telegraph, Harry said: "I love them all in there, they’re all fantastic but they do all want to win, it’s silly to keep saying I don’t want to win because they do."

Harry and Nick continued their row for some time, but Harry started to see the funny side.

The former footballer joked: "It’s like having a football competition 20 years ago and I’d win, it should have been 2, 2, 1, not 3 when you’ve got a man who’s got no tonsils obviously."

When Nick said they would all be good at different challenges, Harry replied: "I’m still trying to find one."
