Harry Redknapp jokes son Jamie flirted with juror in tax trial

Share article:

Harry Redknapp has joked he won his tax case because his son Jamie flirted with a juror.

The 2018 "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!" winner has opened up about his 2012 trial - where he denied accepting secret untaxed bonus payments during his time as Portsmouth manager - and he claimed his solicitor pointed out a woman on the jury who kept looking at his son.

Speaking at a talk at the Royal Albert Hall, he revealed Jamie - who was married to former Eternal singer Louis at the time - said: "Don't worry, I'll keep looking at her as well."

Harry joked he might end up in court again over the story, but added: "For 14 days her and Jamie were playing games. They're giving each other the eye. She's a stunner. The last day, the jury comes in to give out their verdict. I thought, "I'm in with a chance here." "

The 71-year-old star was cleared of tax evasion, but the trial was even reference during his time in the jungle when camp mate Noel Edmonds made a very cheeky dig.

"I'm A Celebrity" was an emotional experience for Harry, who previously admitted he "feared the worst" for Sandra while they spent time apart shortly after she was diagnosed with Sepsis.

Harry said: "I suddenly got a message to speak to people in the bush telegraph, and they said you've gotta leave the camp, you've gotta go.

"I said "where am I going?" I feared the worst. I thought Sandra's obviously not well."
