Redknapp has spent nearly a month in the Australian jungle for the ITV show, taking on Bushtucker trials and entertaining campmates with stories from his career.

He said he was ‘amazed’ at his time in the jungle.

‘I'm amazed I survived three weeks,’ he said.

He said when he arrived on the show he was worried he would have nothing in common with his fellow campers but that they had helped him make it through.

‘They've pulled me up hills, they've dragged me through the water,’ he laughed.

During his three weeks in the jungle, Redknapp entertained with amusing tales about his life, and charmed viewers with his love for Sandra, his wife of 54 years.

He also proved to be a worthy contestant when it came to Bushtucker trials, tackling an assault course, getting covered in rats and eating ‘delicacies’ like a sheep's brain.

Other celebrities in this year’s edition include Fleur East and Nick Knowles.

Before the show started it was reported that Redknapp, who managed Pompey in two spells between 2002 and 2004, and 2005 and 2008. was being paid around £500,000 to appear in the show.

During his time in charge of Pompey Redknapp won the Division One title, in 2003, and the FA Cup in 2008.
