I'm a Celebrity....Get Me Out Of Here winner Harry Redknapp says it will be good to see best pals Ant and Dec back together in the jungle.

As last year's King of the Jungle the 72-year-old football legend was the first to be crowned by a presenting team which didn't include Ant McPartlin.

But he's looking forward to seeing the Geordie star head Down Under again, The Mirror reports .

Ant, 43, sat out last year's series after deciding to take a year off work in the aftermath of his 2018 drink-driving conviction

He was replaced by fellow ITV star Holly Willoughby, but Ant is now preparing to retake his place alongside Declan Donnelly for 2019.

And it's fair to say Harry, who has revealed he'll be watching the show every night, despite never having tuned in before, is a fan of both presenters. 

"They're a great duo, but Holly did an amazing job filling in, that's for sure. She came over great as well," he said. 

"The three of them have all been marvellous, really. 

"It's good to have Ant and Dec back together again."

"We're trying to make football fun for them, no pressure.

"They make good friends at this age, ones who they'll probably be friends with for a big part of their lives."

When asked if beloved wife Sandra, would be making an appearance, he laughed that she doesn't quite share his passion for footie coaching.
