Harry Redknapp opens up for the first time about his son's divorce and you'll honestly tear up

The newly crowned King of the Jungle said Jamie and Louise's split was a "big blow".

They were one of our favourite celebrity couples and when the sad news broke last year that Jamie and Louise Redknapp had decided to go their separate ways after 19 years of marriage, we were devastated for them.

Harry had us all tearing up in the jungle when he was reunited with his wife Sandra. It's clear that he loves her deeply and looking back at old pictures of their wedding day, marriage seems important to the 71-year-old.

For the first time, Harry has opened up about how he felt when he found out his son and Louise were to divorce.

He told The Sun:

"It was very difficult for us, it was a choker. We love Louise as well, it was a big blow to all of us."

Harry continued to say that there is no animosity from either side of the family:

"It’s all amicable, absolutely, Sandra talks to Louise’s mum all the time."

In his autobiography Always Managing, published in 2013, Harry opened up about his perception of Louise. He said:

"Louise, who made it big with chart-toppers Eternal before becoming a major popstar in her own right, is the least showbizzy person you could imagine.

I see her in those glamorous videos for her latest record and find it impossible to reconcile the sexy image I see on-screen with the Louise who comes to my home with Jamie for Sunday dinner."

He also said that he was thrilled the couple got married and praised Louise saying:

"Jamie couldn’t have met a nicer girl. She’s a very caring person.

We recognise her as one of us."
