I'm A Celebrity 2018: 'Unimpressed' Harry Redknapp in HUGE slap down of John Barrowman
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! viewers have been treated to a slew of stories including famous faces by Harry Redknapp so far in the show.
These stories have even included unexpected encounters with Royalty, leaving both campmates and fans a little gobsmacked.
But last night’s episode of the show saw John Barrowman throw his hat in the ring as he decided to explain how he met his now husband, Scott.
Harry began with a story, saying: “Me and my mate Macca, he was a goalkeeper for West Ham, saw these two lovely girls and I said to Macca, ‘Shall we have a dance with those two?’
“Macca is a good-looking geezer and I look back on it now and think Sandra must have seen us both coming over and thought ‘I hope I ain’t got [Harry]’ and she went for me.
“54 years later we’re still going strong. And Macca ended up as an undertaker so really Sandra had the better deal in the long term.”
But however magical the story of Harry’s first meeting with his wife was, John jumped in to offer his own tale.
He began: “I was in Sunset Boulevard at the time and I invited Scott to come and see me and we’d then go out for a meal.
“Well that night we were meant to go out I get a call from someone who said they had Cher on the line.
“She’d seen the show the night before and wanted to take me out for dinner.
“I said, ‘That’s amazing, but I can’t go’. I spoke to Cher and told her why and she said no one had ever turned her down before, so bring Scott along. So our first date was with Cher.”
Although this left campmates and fans in awe, Harry was simply not impressed by John’s recall.
He later commented on the story: “While John was having dinner with Cher, I was with Sandra at the Two Puddings! I know who got the best of the deal.”
And fans loved the interaction, causing them to speak out on Twitter about Harry’s comment.
One wrote: “Harry’s yawn when John was name dropping Cher was priceless #ImACeleb.”
While another said: “#ImACeleb Ah, Harry prefers his Mrs to Cher!”
Harry will have another person to compare stories with this week, as it was recently announced that Noel Edmonds will be joining the show.
On entering the camp Noel announced: “I am going to win because I promise the British public if they vote for me, I will retire from television and I will never appear again.
“There’s a deal that I am striking with the great British public who have supported me over the years – they make me ‘King of the Jungle’ and I will retire and never appear again!”
I’m A Celebrity continues tonight on ITV at 9pm.
