Arsenal legend Ian Wright set for I’m a Celebrity appearance and jungle king Harry Redknapp offers some advice
Arsenal legend Ian Wright will head into the jungle for this year’s edition of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
The former striker follows in the footsteps of close friend Harry Redknapp, who was crowned King of the Jungle last year.
And ironically, it was ‘Arry who spilt the beans on Wright’s appearance, accidentally revealing the top-secret news during a guest appearance at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham.
A fan in the audience tweeted: “Just got home from seeing @Redknapp in Nottingham. Interestingly, he let slip that Ian Wright has been paid £1m to appear on this year’s #ImACeleb.”
But now that the cat’s well and truly out of the bag, with The Sun revealing the full cast, Redknapp has issued a warning to his close pal ahead of his trip Down Under.
The former Tottenham boss told the Mirror: “I’d tell him, ‘Keep calm, Wrighty’. He’s got a short fuse. I played golf with him the other day and he threw a bit of a wobbler with another player.
“You have to bite your tongue in the camp. It’s hard.
“You can get tetchy as there’s nothing to do. It gets boring.
“You can get on each other’s nerves. If anyone gets on Wrighty’s nerves, he’ll tell ’em.”
Also entering the jungle is former rugby union star James Haskell, who has since launched an MMA career.
And Redknapp joked Wright must stay on the right side of the 34-year-old.
“Wrighty needs to keep quiet with him. He’s a tough guy,” he added.
“He’s a nice guy, but I wouldn’t want to get in a row with him. His arms are bigger than my legs.”
