EastEnders has confirmed Harry Redknapp will make a very special appearance in the summer.


Redknapp, who is a fan of the BBC soap, will be around in summer, to coincide with the European Championships.

There's no doubt one member of Albert Square will be delighted to see West Ham hero Harry - Mick Carter (played by Danny Dyer), who has a framed Hammers shirt in his fictional apartment.

The Sun had previously reported Redknapp had scenes with Dyer, but no plot details have been revealed at the time of writing. We can but hope!

The football legend will be on EastEnders this summer most likely some time around when The Euros air, between 11th June and 11th July.

Redknapp said of the announcement: "It's no secret that I've wanted to be in EastEnders so I'm over the moon to be making a special cameo this summer.

"With a nod to the Euros, it's a lovely fit and as a proper East Londoner, it's been so much fun.

"Sandra's a huge fan, she watches every day, so it's a real special moment for the whole family!"

Executive producer of EastEnders, Jon Sen, added: "What a better way to mark a special summer for football fans by having none other than West Ham legend Harry Redknapp pay a visit to Walford.

"He's synonymous with London's East End and we are delighted to hear he's a fan of the show too.

"We can't wait for audiences to see what brings Harry to Albert Square."

Redknapp was previously spotted arriving on the EastEnders set in pictures obtained by the Daily Mail.
