I’m A Celeb’s Fleur East reveals she and King Harry Redknapp are ‘like family’ – Heat World

Their friendship has blossomed outside of the jungle

This year’s series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! was one of the best in the show’s history. Although there wasn’t quite as much drama as normal, viewers loved watching the campmates bond throughout their three weeks in the jungle, and plenty of them have kept in touch back home too.

Of course, no-one was surprised when footballing legend Harry Redknapp took the crown, and the 71-year-old was popular in the jungle too – making friends with each of the other campmates.

One person that Harry became particularly close to in the jungle was singer Fleur East, who has revealed that they have become “like family” since leaving Australia.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk, she said, “We’ve come from similar backgrounds growing up in the east end, humble beginnings and then we’ve faced dreams that have been so big and so outside of where we’ve come from. We had that in common and we spoke a lot about remaining humble and always remembering where you’ve come from.”

Fleur added that she had received some lovely comments about being a role model for young children. She said, “It’s nice that I’ve got that far because there are parents that come up to me and say, ‘My kids have the same hair as you and they’ve always wanted to straighten it’ or ‘Seeing you in the jungle with your hair and you embraced it, now my kid wants to wear her hair natural’, it’s amazing and really cool to have that and be an inspiration in those ways.

“For me, it’s not a conscious thing necessarily but I think it’s really positive because I can have the conversation and hope to change that view and those stereotypes.”

When he spoke about the time he ran Sandra over

Harry unfortunately wasn’t being super observant two years ago, and told his campmates, “I used to think I was a good driver but I had a nightmare and ran over my wife one day. She got out the car and I thought she’d crossed the road and I pulled forward and she fell into the road and a bus stopped literally yards away and the most amazing part of the story probably, my grand-daughter is sitting on top of the bus and sees all of this. Unreal.”
