Harry has exclusively opened up to OK! about what it's like working alongside Jamie, saying it was a joy to be reunited after months of being separated in lockdown.

I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! winner Harry told us: “When Jamie said he wanted me to do it, I was up for it.”

“It’s better to work with people you know, especially your son, so I’m really looking forward to it,” he continued.

“I haven’t got to see Jamie too much in the last year, obviously, so it’s good for me to spend a bit of time with him.”

And while working with family could be some people’s worst nightmare, Harry said he knows they’ll get along well, having always had a fantastic relationship.

Harry continued: “We have a great relationship. I could count on one hand the times that I’ve had a cross word with Jamie.”

“We’ve always got on well. I talk to him almost every day and we play golf together when we can. And I’ve been very lucky to follow his career.”

Adding what fans of the pair can expect in their new project, he teased: “It’s going to be a fun chat show with Jamie and Tom Davis. We all get on very well together.”

“We’ve got some good guests coming on and a bit of music, so it’s a show that people can enjoy to get the weekend underway.”

Of course, this isn’t the first time Harry and Jamie have entertained viewers at home. The Redknapp boys also had fans in stitches when they appeared in the I’m a Celebrity Get Out of my Ear segment on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

Revealing how much fun he had tricking the unsuspecting members of the public, Harry said: “It’s right up my street as I do love playing tricks on people, so I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed that.”

He concluded: “That’s my type of humour. So I’d love to do a show where you wind people up and prank them. I’m ready for something like that.”

Redknapp’s Big Night Out starts Thursday 22 April, 10pm, Sky One and NOW.
