Football legend and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here star Harry Redknapp will visit Swindon for his first event after leaving Australia.
The former premier league manager, 71, who was crowned king of the jungle, will be spilling the beans on his footballing days and his I’m A Celebrity victory at the Steam Museum in February.
I Am Promotions, based in Swindon, will be hosting the one-off event. Jack Baverstock, co-founder of the company, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be hosting a night like this for the town, we don’t always get to have the A-list stars come here but we are trying to change this.
“Harry Redknapp is a legend and we are proud to have some one of his calibre – he is a true gentleman as we seen on the ITV show with his love for his wife Sandra.
“This will be a show for everyone, Harry appeals to all, he is a national treasure.”
Harry, 71, had 18 seasons as a premier league manager. Among the teams he managed were West Ham, QPR and Tottenham Hotspur – the team he took into the UEFA Champions League. He also led Portsmouth to win the FA Cup under his regime.
The show will help to raise money for Ronald McDonald House which gives families the chance to remain close to their child while they are in hospital.
On the night there will also be a comedian and live music from a local performer which will be revealed in the New Year once the full line-up has been confirmed.
There will also be an auction midway through the evening where rare signed shirts from footballing legends will be up for grabs, some of the names include Pele and Ronaldo.
Jack said: “We really want to use our events to help those who need it most. We want to raise as much money as possible for the charity.”
The event will take place on 22nd February and will feature a champagne reception, dinner and the chance to meet Harry.
