Harry Redknapp Makes Who Wants To Be A Millionaire History

Harry Redknapp made Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? history after failing to taking home a single penny for charity.

The former Tottenham manager became the first ever celeb to not win a charitable amount of money from the show.

Host Jeremy Clarkson was said to have been left astonished by Redknapp's performance on the show, considering how well he did to win I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

For those unaware, you need to answer five questions correctly in order to guarantee a prize of at least £1,000.

Harry is said to be embarrassed for only managing to answer three correct questions.

Although he managed to stack up £300 - he wrongly answered his £500 question and lost it all.

Despite his shortcomings, a source told The Sun that 'in order to make up for it' he made a donation from his own pocket to another cause.

The source said: "He was clearly shocked and embarrassed at getting the boot so early in the competition - he'd barely been in the hotseat a few minutes.

"But he was crestfallen mainly because he'd failed to raise any funds and didn't hesitate to put his hand in his pocket.

"It was certainly a contrast to when he was on another big ITV show, I'm A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here!, which he won."

In 2018, Harry was crowned king of the jungle after viewers chose him ahead of actress Emily Atack - who came second - and entertainer and presenter, John Barrowman - who finished third.

Speaking to Holly and Dec at the time, Harry admitted: "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."

It's safe to say he won the hearts of the nation.

I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! returns to our screens on Sunday November 21 at 9pm.

We'll be getting broadcaster and ex-BBC Breakfast host Louise Minchin, Olympic Gold Medallist Matty Lee, Radio 1Xtra DJ Snoochie Shy, TV presenter and journalist Richard Madeley, choreographer Dame Arlene Phillips, DBE, music producer Naughty Boy, Paralympic Gold Medallist Kadeena Cox, MBE, football legend David Ginola, pop star and presenter Frankie Bridge and finally Emmerdale star Danny Miller.
