He’s tipped to rake in the big bucks following his triumph on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

However, it’s not just Harry Redknapp who is celebrating a windfall after a host of the show’s fans won big at the bookies thanks to him.

Viewers of the ITV reality show who placed bets on the retired football manager being crowned King of the Jungle have won over £10million at the bookmakers.

Just hours after entering the Australian camp last month, the 71-year-old quickly became the bookies’ favourite to win the show after a flurry of bets.

BookmakersTV have now reported 53 per cent of betting slips on the show named Harry to win the series, with viewers placing £5million on the East Londoner.
