Harry Redknapp thought wife Sandra would ‘lose her foot’ after horrific car crash

Harry Redknapp has revealed his fears that his wife Sandra would "lose her foot" when he hit her with her car.

The I’m A Celebrity winner won the nation’s hearts due in part to his devotion to Sandra, and he cried when they reuinted in a touching jungle moment.

But fans did not forget when, some time before his jungle journey, he backed into her accidentally, causing her ankle to "slice like bacon" in such a way that Harry feared she would lose her foot.

In an interview with This Morning, Phillip Schofield asked him exactly how he did it, and it clearly brought back a painful memory for Harry.

Harry replied: "That was a nightmare, Phil. It was a one way street in Westbourne, where we live, and Sandra was going into the Tv shop.

"And so I parked on the right hand side, there were two lanes, just room for one car to go through. I saw Sandra get out… looked in my wing mirror… I thought she’d crossed but she went to cross but there were cars crossing so she backed up…

"I looked but didn’t see her and she stood against my back wheel and back door and I thought, ‘I’m taking two parking spaces so I better move forward a bit…’

"I didn’t go over her foot, half of Sandra’s ankle was actually in the thing, I sliced it like bacon."

Sandra said she did not blame him for what happened, however, saying it was "just an accident," but Harry was afraid she may lose her foot.

Harry added: "When I got out the people were like, ‘Don’t look at her foot,’ and when I did I thought, ‘Oh my god,’ I thought she’d lose it, it was that bad."

But as a result of what happened, Sandra joked that now Harry opens the door for her when she gets out.

This Morning airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV.
