How Harry would look at the bar with Mick – he said: ‘I’ve always wanted to have a drink in the Queen Vic. Danny Dyer was terrific to work with’

It comes after former West Ham manager Harry urged the soap’s bosses to give him a role in a Sun on Sunday interview in January.

His cameo has now been filmed and will air during this summer’s Covid-delayed Euro 2020, with the semis and final at Wembley.

Thrilled Harry said: “I’ve always wanted to have a drink in the Queen Vic. Danny Dyer was terrific to work with.’’

A source said: “Harry has made no secret of the fact he wanted to be in the show.

“Mick likes wearing his West Ham shirt so I’m sure they’ll swap some Cockney banter about the Hammers.

“They made him feel so welcome and he felt really at home. He only has eight lines but he plays them as himself – not as a character.”

He said: “They’re at the bar and one of ‘em says, ‘You heard Redknapp has moved back in the area?’ And another says, ‘Nah he’s moved to that posh Sandbanks’.

“Mick says, ‘He’s had enough, he’s come back’.

“I come into the pub. Mick says, ‘Harry is back ‘cause we’re starting up a little business – bit of this, bit of that’.”

Harry won 2018’s I’m A Celebrity and has linked up with son Jamie, 47, for Sky’s Redknapp’s Big Night Out.
