'The World According To Harry' is my take on the important things - from what makes true team spirit and not forgetting your East End roots, to the joys of jam roly-poly and knowing how lucky I am to have met a girl like Sandra. I can't claim to be clued up on showbiz, but I'm certainly not short of a story or two. I went from causing mayhem at school to the heights of the premiership to lying in a coffin with a load of rats on national television. Life has its high points and there are always rough patches, but I'm still loving every minute. These are my lessons, laughs and legendary tales from my time in football but also as an ordinary bloke who can't even work a pressure washer properly.

Harry Redknapp was born in 1947 in Poplar, East London. After starting out as a trainee at Tottenham, he signed for West Ham and played for them between 1965 and 1972. He also played for Bournemouth and the Seattle Sounders before injury took him into management and coaching. He has managed at Bournemouth, West Ham, Portsmouth (twice), Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur and QPR. He won the FA Cup with Portsmouth in 2008 and took Spurs into the Champions League in 2010. In 2018, Harry was crowned King of the Jungle in I'm a Celebrity. Get Me Out of Here. He has written three bestselling books: his autobiography Always Managing, which was number one in the Sunday Times, his history of the game in A Man Walks On To a Pitch and his survival guide to the world's hardest job in It Shouldn't Happen to a Manager. He is married to Sandra and has two sons, Mark and Jamie (who played for Liverpool, Tottenham and England). He is also uncle to Frank Lampard Jr. He has two bulldogs called Lulabelle and Barney.
