Share article:

Peter Crouch has backed Harry Redknapp to do "very well" on "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!".

The 37-year-old footballer has wished his former manager luck during his time in the jungle, and predicted that he would have a "fun time" and progress far in the competition.

Speaking at the launch of the Enchanted Christmas Season at Disneyland Paris, he said: "Yeah, good luck to him. I'm sure he'll have a fun time.

"I think he'll do very well."

During a task in last night's (18.11.18) "I'm A Celebrity" series 18 launch episode, Harry recalled a "nightmare" incident in which he accidentally ran over his wife's foot.

The former Spurs boss recalled the moment he seriously injured his wife Sandra in 2016 after her foot got trapped inside Harry's car as he pulled away - and she was rushed to hospital for an operation on her ankle, following the incident.

He said: "I used to think I was a good driver but I had a nightmare and ran over my wife one day.

"She got out the car and I thought she'd crossed the road and I pulled forward and she fell into the road and a bus stopped literally yards away.

"The most amazing part of the story probably, my grand-daughter is sitting on top of the bus and sees all of this. Unreal."

The star told the story while undertaking the "Hell Holes" task, which saw Harry tasked with putting his hand in a hole filled with creepy crawlies and crabs to pull out objects while sitting in the passenger seat of a car.

Crouch's comments come just a week after Neil Ruddock, who Harry used to manage at West Ham, predicted his former boss would struggle on the show.

He wrote: "I bloody hope he eats Kangaroo b******s. I'd like to see him eat testicles.

"Harry is a bit of a wuss. But I thought I was big and brave until I went in there and the Jungle rats are the size of cats and the mosquitoes are the size of sparrows!

"It is scary, but you get so tired after two days if you bite me, bite me, just let me go to sleep! It'll be a big shock for him."
