Harry Redknapp's granddaughter Molly, 19, joined her grandmother Sandra Redknapp in Australia to support her grandfather in I'm A Celebrity, and it sounds as if it was a very worth-while trip! The teenager is said to be "officially dating" Harry's campmate Malique Thompson-Dwyer, 20, after meeting at the show's wrap party. According to The Sun, the pair have met up on several occasions since returning to the UK. Molly is the daughter of Harry and Sandra's oldest son Mark, and lives close to her grandparents in Sandbanks. Molly also got on well with the rest of the I'm A Celebrity stars, and joined Harry and Sandra when they met up with Fleur East and James McVey just after Christmas.

The 2018 I'm A Celebrity campmates all formed close friendships during their time in the jungle, and they were all over the moon for James when he popped the question to long-term girlfriend Kirstie Brittain. Harry even accompanied James to choose the ring, after recommending a jewellers. Chatting to HELLO! in an exclusive interview, James recalled: ""Harry said he knew a really good jeweller whenever I was ready to do it and I thought, I may as well just do it." The pair arranged to meet up at Franses, a jeweller in Bournemouth, where James grew up and which is close to Harry’s home in Sandbanks, Dorset. "By the time Harry arrived I had already chosen the ring; as soon as I saw it I knew it was the one. And Harry loved it too," he said.
