John Barrowman has a crush on Jamie Redknapp

Share article:

John Barrowman says Harry Redknapp was taken aback when he told him his son Jamie Redknapp was his "celebrity crush".

The "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!" star informed the 71-year-old football manager that his 45-year-old son was his dream date when they were starring on the Australian jungle-based show, and he was met with a startled reaction.

He told The Sun Online: "He's hot. He's totally hot. When people say, "Who's your celeb crush?", I'd say, "Jamie Redknapp."

"I actually told Harry in the jungle. I said, "I fancied Jamie when I was younger," and I don't think he knew how to take it right away because he was just getting to know me."

John and Harry's fellow former campmate Emily Atack also confessed her love for Jamie during their time in the jungle, but the "Torchwood" actor admits it might be "awkward" if the "Inbetweeners" star ended up in a relationship with the football pundit, because John knows Jamie's ex-wife Louise Redknapp, who he has two sons, Charles, 14, and Beau, 10, with.
