King of the Jungle, Harry Redknapp is heading to Exeter on Saturday, June 22 as part of his UK-wide tour.
The former football manager and winner of I’m a Celebrity 2018 will be holding a theatre show at the Great Hall, Exeter University.
“I always look forward to coming to Exeter,” said Harry. “In all the years I managed I always brought teams down to play a pre-season friendly at St James Park.
“We used to stay at Nigel Mansell’s place at Woodbury, it’s a part of the country we love coming to.”
“I love coming down to Exeter races, I’ve had winners there the last couple of years. It’s always a good day out for me."
The theatre show is being hosted by comedian Noel Brodie and offers fans the opportunity to hear one of the most charismatic football speakers reminisce about his career in football and in the Jungle.
“I’m looking forward to it. There will be lots of stuff from the days in the Jungle to talk about as well as my days in management.
“There have been a large percentage of women coming to the theatre shows which is great. Before, if I had held a dinner it would be mainly men. It’s been a good audience and I’ve really enjoyed it so far.”
Harry, 71, was crowned ‘King of the Jungle’ in December 2018, beating actress Emily Atack and actor John Barrowman. Harry hadn’t event watched the programme before entering.
“It was a great experience. I wasn’t going to do it, but I’m glad I did. I met loads of nice people and we’ve all remained friends.
“It was different, to be honest I came out of there feeling healthy. I probably wasn’t eating enough to keep a rabbit alive. I lost about eighteen pounds in weight and felt super fit and healthy when I left.
"I was out of my comfort zone with people I had nothing in common with. I’m sport mad and none of them knew anything about sport, but I got interested in their lives and what they do."
Since being crowned King of the Jungle Harry’s life has been non-stop. “It’s been hectic, I never expected this I must be honest. Every day I seem to be somewhere.
“I’m off this week doing Soccer Aid, it’s the fifth time I’ve done it. I’m managing the rest of the world team with Piers Morgan, against Sam Allardyce and Susanna Reid’s England team.
“It’s been a big change but I’m still looking forward to the new football season coming around. Sport is still my biggest hobby.
“Hopefully next year will see Exeter get promoted, they keep knocking on the door but I’m sure they will get there.”
