SANDBANKS' own Harry Redknapp had viewers in tears tonight after reuniting with his wife of 54 years in the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! jungle.

The veteran football manager was overwhelmed by the appearance of his wife Sandra, and tearfully told her how much she was missed.

Redknapp had triumphed in the Bush Tucker Trial before the visit, claiming the full five stars for his camp mates while avoiding snakes and lizards.

Sandra told him there was support for him in the outside world and said the couple will soon be reunited. Redknapp broke down in tears as he said: "I can't help this, it is not like me, I don't normally cry, I'm pretty old school.

"Are you pleased to see me?"

His wife replied: "I got a bit sad the other day.

"I got a bit tearful because I missed you."

"It's funny, 54 years and we just don't want to be apart, that's done me up today," Redknapp said.

"I've missed her so much. I love you so much."

Redknapp has proved to be a big hit on this year's series.

There were more tears as John Barrowman was reunited with his husband Scott, and as Fleur East welcomed her sister Keshia.

James McVey also became tearful as he spoke with his girlfriend Kirstie.
