Harry Redknapp's wife Sandra

Harry, 73, and wife Sandra Harris, have been together for over 50 years. When Harry was Down Under taking part in I'm a Celebrity, the former football manager was famously very vocal and romantic about his wife, and even told the story of how they got together. The couple met as teenagers during a dance at the Two Puddings pub in East London. Harry was out with his friend 'Macca', a "good-looking geezer" who played for West Ham. "I look back on it now and think Sandra must have seen us both coming over and thought, 'I hope I ain't got him,'" said Harry, referring to himself. "And she went for me. 54 years later we're still going strong."

During a previous chat with HELLO!, the TV star could not help but gush about his wife. "I can't wait to get home to see her tonight to be honest with you," he confessed. "I know it is silly after 54 years, but that is how we are. We go out, we are like Johnny no-mates. There is always just me and Sandra. We go out together on Saturday nights; we go to a restaurant." He continued: "You are lucky to get on so well with someone and enjoy being with someone so much - I love being with Sandra - I love it, she's my life!"

Singer and former Strictly Come Dancing star Louise was married to Jamie for 19 years before they announced their split in 2017. The former Eternal band member has two children with Jamie, Beau and Charley, and the two continue to co-parent the boys. After Louise and Jamie announced their split in 2017, Harry opened up about how he reacted to the news. "I was choked. Absolutely," he said during an appearance on Piers Morgan's Life Stories. "I just never ever, ever could see that happening. I thought they were getting married forever. They were such a lovely couple together." The father-of-two added: "It came completely as a shock, out of the blue. They were not a showbiz marriage if you like. Lou just did not want to be anywhere without Jamie. They were very, very down to earth, the pair of them. It was a shock when it happened. Very sad."
