Harry Redknapp thinks the modern world is "dangerous for pensioners".

The 72-year-old football manager is convinced robots will soon be doing "everything", which spells bad news for him because he already struggles to get to grips with "machines".

He said: "Soon there will be robots doing everything. Cars will take off and fly.

"They will be doing everything. It's crazy.

"Machines, argh I can't stand them.

June Brown: I'm going to die 'fairly soon'

Harry can be seen in new show "Hard To Please OAPS" - which also features the likes of June Brown and Lionel Blair - struggling to use an Alexa smart speaker, operate a light bulb via a mobile phone and attempting to shop with a contactless payment card.

And the "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!" winner wasn't the only star to be bamboozled by gadgets.

Former "Coronation Street" actress Amanda Barrie insisted she can't "see the point" in many digital devices.

She said: "I don't see the point of having all these gadgets. I mean, what do they do?

"I'd be worried if my home was run by these things and there was a power cut."

The 83-year-old actress also has no interest in driverless cars being introduced on the roads - because she thinks she'll be "dead" by the time it happens.

She said: "A driverless car sounds sinister and dangerous.

"They're not coming in for another five years. I will be dead by then."

Meanwhile, "EastEnders" legend June is worried she'll be killed by a robot in her own home.

She said: "It's horrible. Imagine having a robot in your sitting room. I don't suppose it could develop a brain, but it might decide to put a knife in you! I wouldn't trust it. I don't know what'll happen - maybe the end of the world."
