The man who guided Pompey to FA Cup success in 2008 is one of ten contestants who will enter the jungle - the reality TV show which starts this Sunday.

Following the confirmation on Twitter it took Southampton only six minutes to poke fun at Redknapp.

The club tweeted: "Careful Harry doesn’t leave you halfway through to join @bbcstrictly"

It's a reference to Redknapp's decision to quit Saints for his 'spiritual home' of Fratton Park in December 2005.
