KING of the Jungle and famous Sandbanks resident Harry Redknapp is set to appear in Eastenders.

London-born Harry has been seen at the BBC soap's Elstree Studios and is said to be thrilled to have landed a role.

The former football manager is said to be appearing as himself and his role may be linked to the delayed Euro 2020 tournament in the summer.

It is believed he will appear alongside Danny Dyer in the Queen Vic.

Harry, 74, is hugely popular with the public and won I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here to be crowned King of the Jungle.

He first spoke of his ambition to appear in Eastenders in an interview with The Sun earlier this year.

He told The Sun: "I've already written the script so now all the show's bosses need to do is to call me up. I'd like to be in it for a year – before they bump me off or something."
