share close

Harry Redknapp is set to swap the football pitch for Albert Square with a cameo in EastEnders coinciding with the European Championships, it has been confirmed.

The former Tottenham, QPR and West Ham boss says he has long wanted to appear in the long-running BBC One soap.

His special appearance has now been officially confirmed following reports of the star being spotted on set.

“It’s no secret that I’ve wanted to be in EastEnders so I’m over the moon to be making a special cameo this summer,” Redknapp said.

“With a nod to the Euros, it’s a lovely fit and, as a proper east Londoner, it’s been so much fun.”

Redknapp, 74, also said Sandra, his wife of more than 50 years, is a “huge fan” of the soap, “so it’s a real special moment for the whole family”.

EastEnders said Redknapp’s “legendary status among West Ham supporters guarantees Harry will be welcomed to Walford with open arms as the residents of the Square celebrate the tournament”.

Jon Sen, the soap’s executive producer, said: “What better way to mark a special summer for football fans by having none other than West Ham legend Harry Redknapp pay a visit to Walford?

“He’s synonymous with London’s East End and we were delighted to hear he’s a fan of the show too. We can’t wait for audiences to see what brings Harry to Albert Square.”

Redknapp, whose cameo will air in the summer, won the 2018 series of ITV’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, and currently hosts Redknapp’s Big Night Out on Sky One with son Jamie Redknapp and comedian Tom Davis.
