Harry Rednapp is being backed to win I’m a Celebrity by his famous nephew…Derby County boss Frank Lampard.

Redknapp, who’s 71, has been in the Australian jungle for six days as part of the ITV show.

As well as managing Spurs, West Ham, Portsmouth, Bournemouth and Birmingham, he also had a brief spell as a football adviser at Derby County in 2016, helping then manager Darren Wassall.

“I watch Harry most nights, not every night, and he’s doing great,” says Lampard.

“I think he is going to win it. It’s early days, and that might be my bias but he would deserve to win it because the challenge he has taken on himself going in is big. I wouldn’t do it, myself.

“He will be good viewing for the next few weeks.”
