Jamie Redknapp feared dad would quit I’m A Celeb after he had to be ‘force fed’

Jamie Redknapp has opened up about his fears that dad Harry would quit I’m A Celebrity after struggling to eat the food on offer.

The 71-year-old has become a huge hit with viewers over the last few weeks, but his son Jamie admitted that he was worried he could lose his temper.

Harry have been closely monitored by the ITV show’s bosses after he began to drastically lose weight. His lack of interest in the grub provided to the celebs has also prompted his fellow campmates to coax him into eating.

Insiders have reportedly been fearing that he could walk out before the final on Sunday.


Speaking to The Sun , Jamie, 45, said: "There have been moments where I’ve thought, ‘You’re on the edge’. People say, ‘Your dad is so lovely. He’s so funny’.

"But he can lose it sometimes. In a dressing room I’ve seen him lose it and start throwing things. "I was a bit worried that after a week or two he might go,

"I don’t know if I need this’. But he’s stuck it out."

Jamie added that his dad likes "simple food" and that Harry is "useless" in the kitchen.
