I’m A Celebrity ‘bosses are fearing for Harry Redknapp’s health, worrying he may not reach the show’s final.’
The 71 year old footie legend has been reportedly refusing food and is struggling for energy in the jungle, sparking concerns for his physical welfare.
But ITV sources have told MirrorOnline that he is on "great form," and there are no worries at all.
Before heading into the jungle, Harry admitted he thought there might be bacon sandwiches delivered to the campmates as he had not watched the show, meaning his entry into the jungle and lack of food was a major surprise.
He said: "I’ve got to be honest, I thought there was a caravan round the back here where they were doing bacon sandwiches.

"There will be an ‘OK, OK time out, let’s all go round and have a coffee, bacon sandwich, sausage sandwich, alright back on set’ but no that ain’t happening is it?"
But a source told The Sun there are fears Harry may not even make it to the final after all.
The source said: "Harry is the oldest campmate and there are now genuine worries over his health. He is struggling to eat, has lost a lot of weight, and is physically exhausted.
“He is too tired to do much more than sit around the camp. He is uncomfortable physically and is starting to miss home badly. Producers are worried he’s had enough and are closely monitoring his wellbeing.”
Jamie Redknapp, Harry’s football pundit son, said he thought he might "walk after five days" once he realised how little food there was available.

Jamie joked: "I have to be honest, the fact that he came into it not knowing what to expect was almost quite cute, nobody knew what he was going to be like, I had no idea.
"I thought, after five days he would’ve walked out. It wouldn’t surprise me.
"I’d have actually put everything on that more than him sticking it out like he has done."
Rita Simons was the most recent celebrity to be booted out of the jungle, and Harry has been one of the favourites to take the win since early episodes.
ITV sources told MirrorOnline: "We monitor the campmates health and Harry is in great form as viewers saw on last night’s show."
