Jamie Redknapp skips I'm A Celebrity final and parties at Jingle Bell Ball – despite dad Harry being favourite to win

The former footballer, 45, decided not to stay at home and watch the final on telly tonight.

Jamie's dad Harry, 71, has won the hearts of the nation and has been tipped to take the jungle crown tonight.

However, his son won't be at home watching the action as he headed out to the pop gig in London.

He was pictured arriving at the event at the O2 Arena, where stars including Cheryl are on the bill for tonight's show.

Jamie had a huge smile on his face as he posed for pictures on the red carpet outside the gig.

Harry is the bookies’ favourite to win the show this year after stealing the hearts of the nation with his lovable personality, stories about his wife Sandra and his entertaining tales.

He was the second highest paid star to ever appear on the programme with his fee of £500,000 after fellow series celeb Noel Edmonds, who was paid £600,000 for his appearance.

But Harry has been predicted to make millions off the back of the show

He's expected to rake in more cash from book deals, endorsements and television shows, including his part on ITV series Match Fit, which he has already signed up to.

Show fans warmed even more to Harry the more he spoke about his love for his wife Sandra, who he has been married to for 51 years, and they have called for the couple to have their own reality show.

According to former campmate, The Vamps singer James McVey, Harry did not stop talking about his wife throughout his time in the Australian jungle.

James said: “His life is Sandra and for [girlfriend] Kirstie and I they are the absolute example of what our life is together.

“I would love to be like them.”
