Harry Redknapp Has Brutal Response After Being Asked If Emily Atack Has Chance With Son Jamie

It was a truly hilarious moment in the I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here jungle when Emily Atack asked Harry Redknapp if his recently divorced son, Jamie, was single - it was even funnier when Harry said Emily had 'no chance' with his son, unless she was 'scrubbed up'.

The 71-year-old former football manager spoke to Piers Morgan and Kate Garraway, on ITV's Good Morning Britain when he said he thought Emily wouldn't cut it for Jamie when he first saw her in the jungle, but now he's more than keen to have the two meet.

He said: "Oh, yes! I'll be honest, when I saw her in the jungle I thought no chance. But I've seen her today when she's scrubbed up and she looks alright, I'm telling ya!"

His blunt admission truly tickled Piers and Kate pulling them into fits of laughter, he then added: "She looks very useful, she looks good. I think, yeah! But when I saw her in a jungle I thought nah you ain't got a prayer."

Kate seemed less than pleased with the ex-Tottenham Hotspur boss' answer, asking if he was wanting to see Emily put 'the slap back on' and Piers called him a 'breath of politically incorrect fresh air'.

He said: "No today, when she scrubbed up, she looked fantastic! I went 'who are you!?' she went; I was in the jungle with you! and I was like, 'I haven't seen you before!' But she was brilliant, she was great."

But he didn't even hesitate or pause when answering if he'd attempt to get them together, to which it was a solid yes.

Harry was crowned the I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here king of the jungle last night after beating out John Barrowman and Emily Atack to the top spot.

Speaking to Holly and Dec, Harry said: "It was tougher than I expected, really tough, nobody gives you anything. I've made so many good friends, it's been a really good experience.

"It's taught me how to laugh again."

He said on winning: "They're (the camp mates) the most lovely people I've ever met, there's not one person I've got a single bad word about. Without them I would never have survived.

"When I've been flagging they've been pushing me."

Earlier in the series Emily had asked Harry if Jamie was single, which he confirmed and she had a cheeky moment of addressing the camera, and Jamie, saying: "Jamie, call me."
