Harry Redknapp won over a new legion of fans after competing on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! back in 2018. Since his appearance on the programme, fans have loved following the football manager’s life, including his stunning Dorset home.

We adored our time in Sandbanks but we love where we are now — it’s quieter.

However, after 25 years, Harry and his wife Sandra decided to part ways with their beachfront home in favour of a quieter life.

Harry, 74, claims that due to the popularity of Poole, his quiet retreat was often surrounded by tourists heading to the beach.

The former Tottenham Hotspur ace often made his way to the waterfront, taking in the stunning views before going for a dip.

While they may not be on the seafront anymore, both Sandra and Harry “love” their new home in Poole, Dorset.

In a new interview, Jamie Redknapp’s dad said: “It’s a beautiful place [Sandbanks] but with it being by the water, it just got too busy for us.

“We lived on the water for 25 years and we just wanted a bit of change.”

Sandra interjected, saying: “We adored our time in Sandbanks but we love where we are now — it’s quieter.”

Discussing his previous home, Harry told OK! Magazine: “Yeah, I enjoyed it — you could just walk down and have a swim!”

He went on to say: “I grew up in east London in a block of flats on a council estate so to live on the beach was a dream come true for me, I feel very lucky.”

While many would have flocked to the beach with surfboards and jet skis, Harry admits that he never contemplated taking up watersports.

“I like having a dip and that’s about it,” he said.

Mr Redknapp continued: “I even got roped into going in on Christmas Day once!”

While the couple may have been thrown into the spotlight again after Harry’s appearance on I’m A Celebrity… he admits that it’s not a lifestyle they particularly enjoy.

“It’s only since I did the jungle that Sandra has been put in the spotlight, it’s not something she ever wanted to do, she’s not mad on it and could do without it,” Harry confessed.

Sandra added: “No, I’m not keen on the limelight if I’m honest.”

She continued: “I like keeping myself to myself but being married to Harry, I’m used to him being in the spotlight and always being on TV!”

Following the news that Harry and Sandra’s son Jamie Redknapp is expecting his third child, his first with partner Frida Andersson, Sandra said: “It’s exciting!”

Before Harry added: “Yeah, we’re very excited — Jamie is very happy and Frida is happy.

“We’re lucky that Jamie has two boys already.”

Jamie is dad to Charley, 16, and Beau, 12, who he shares with his ex-wife, Louise Redknapp.
