I'm a Celeb winner Harry Redknapp could be competing in the new season of Strictly Come Dancing
Harry Redknapp is the bookies' favourite for the 2019 series of BBC1's Strictly Come Dancing.
The 72-year-old won the nation's hearts after appearing on ITV's I'm a Celebrity in 2018 and was crowned king of the jungle by the British public.
Former manager of Birmingham City Harry has been tipped as one of the new contestants for the Saturday night dance show, with bookies slashing their odds.
Ladbrokes have cut odds on Harry Redknapp joining the Strictly Come Dancing line-up from 3/1 to 5/4.
This means the I'm a Celebrity winner is slowly emerging as the bookies' favourite.
A spokesperson for Ladbrokes said: "Harry's clearly high on Strictly chiefs' wanted list and the odds are continuing to tumble on the King of the Jungle taking to the dance floor."
Harry was approached by the Strictly producers for the last season but decided to opt for I'm a celebrity instead.
He told the MailOnline: “I told Jamie [Redknapp] I was thinking of doing [Strictly] and I don't think he was pleased about it. And so I was offered the jungle at the same time and chose to do that."
Hopefully Harry will accept the BBC's offer if they decide to pursue him a second time/
