Jamie Redknapp Comments On Whether He'll Date Emily Atack Or Not

Since Emily Atack first asked Harry Redknapp if his son was single in the I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here jungle, people have been dying to know if Jamie was up for seeing the former Inbetweeners star.

Now the 45-year-old football pundit has no broken his silence on the whole thing when he was quizzed about it by Dean Saunders on talkSPORT.

On Alan Brazil's Breakfast show the question came up: what's more likely - Liverpool winning the Champions League or Jamie taking Emily out.

Jamie responded: "What's more likely did you say? Ah Deano come on. Leave it out. Listen, she's great...she's a very nice girl isn't she. Let's leave it at that."

Could this be the end of the romance before it's even started? Or is he leaving the door open? It comes after Jamie seemingly flirted with Emily on the I'm a Celeb Extra Camp episode.

In Harry's post-win interview on Extra Camp, son Jamie called in to congratulate him on being crowned King of the Jungle.

As the Redknapps chatted away, Emily and John Barrowman shouted 'Hi Jamie!' down the line, prompting Harry to tell Jamie: "Keep away from Emily, Jamie. She'd be too much for you."

Jamie then replied: "I know, I reckon she is."

Emily and John giggled profusely and Jamie added: "Do you know what Tinder is, Dad? Emily, you need to tell him what Tinder is."

Harry joked back: "That's what we started the fire with!"

Hopes were incredibly high for viewers after this and after Harry's interview with Piers Morgan and Kate Garraway on ITV's Good Morning Britain where he seemed more than keen to set the two up on a date.

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 the jungle I thought nah you ain't got a prayer."

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