I'm A Celebrity contestants are announced for this year's trip to the jungle

Harry Redknapp will head into the jungle for the new series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! despite never having seen the programme before.

The football manager, 71, is among the 10 stars confirmed for the ITV series, which will this year be hosted by Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby. Here's how they line up:

Former Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham manager Redknapp thinks the jungle will be far easier than being the boss of a losing football team - although he admits he has never actually watched the programme.'"You haven't got many friends when it's not going well as a football manager. So no, I don't think doing this will be tougher," said the 71-year-old.'Redknapp said he will not mind missing meals but will struggle to be without his wife.'He said: "That's the biggest problem I have got. We do everything together. I have been with Sandra for 54 years and I hate being away from her."
