If you’re a football fan like me, you’ll have a bit of a soft-spot for Harry Redknapp.

He makes Transfer Deadline Day actually enjoyable, while his comments about David Bentley after he hit him with a ball are legendary.

He also stole our hearts towards the back end of last year with his lovely anecdotes about wife Sandra, which led to him being crowned king of the ‘I’m A Celeb’ jungle.

It was well deserved.

But ol’ ‘Arry returned to the smalls screens last night with his new two-part show Harry’s Heroes: The Full English.

The premise essentially follows a group of England football legends coming back together to eventually play a full 11-a-side match against a team of German legends, hopefully putting that old rivalry to bed.

However, it was the show’s sensitive handling of mental health that really struck a chord with viewers, especially during one scene with David Seaman, Robbie Fowler and Paul Merson.

Ex- Arsenal player Paul Merson has had well documented issues with addiction in the past – particularly gambling and drinking – and his open discussion of the two was praised by people on Twitter.

It’s good to see the King of the Jungle continuing with his stellar work.

Harry’s Heroes: The Full English concludes tonight at 9pm on ITV.
