Frank Lampard is "surprised" at how well his uncle Harry Redknapp has embraced camp life on "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!"

The Derby County manager - who is the nephew of the 71-year-old football manager - is proud of his relative's ability to take on all the tough tasks is backing him to win.

The former Chelsea player told the Derby Telegraph newspaper: "His character hasn't surprised me, because I know his personality full well - I've grown up with it.

"What has surprised me is how well he has taken on the tasks.

"On day one, he didn't want to eat emu - then all of a sudden, I'm watching him down all sorts of things!

"But I'm pretty sure he's one of the favourites at the moment."

"It is strange but that's what it is."

And Frank thinks Harry's performance in the jungle is particularly impressive because of his advancing years.

"Let's give Harry credit - to go in there, no disrespect, at the age he is, with the younger people that are in there, and he's taken it full pelt, which is typical of Harry with everything he does in his life.

"He was at this club (Derby) for a short period, and he gives it his all.

"He does it with character, he does it with heart.

"That's what people are saying and I think that's why they are falling in love with him."

The 40-year-old former footballer also revealed that he has a connection to "I'm A Celebrity..." contestant Noel Edmonds, as the two attended the exclusive £14,000 a year Brentwood School in Essex.

The former midfielder added: "Noel Edmonds went to my school, so it's a weird sort of circle, not that I know him that well."
