The couple met at a dance above London’s East End pub the Two Puddings more than 50 years ago, when Harry was just 16.

They went to have two sons; retired footballer Jamie, 45, and Mark, a model.  

During his stint in the jungle Harry and John Barrowman, 51, struck up the ‘loveliest’ of friendships when the pair shared the stories of how they both met their partners.

The former Birmingham City manager revealed how his wife Sandra, picked him over his ‘good looking’ friend at the dance.

Speaking to his camp-mate, Harry explained: ‘Me and my mate Macca, he was a goalkeeper for West Ham, saw these two lovely girls and I said to Macca shall we have a dance with those two.

‘Macca is a good looking geezer and I look back on it now and think Sandra must have seen us both coming over and thought “I hope I ain’t got him” (referring to himself) and she went for me, 54 years later we’re still going strong.’

The uncle of Chelsea legend Frank Lampard laughed: ‘And Macca ended up as an undertaker so really Sandra had the better deal in the long term.’

Talking in the Bush Telegraph, John said of his chat with the ex-footballer: ‘We needed to get wood for the campfire so Harry and I went down to collect some wood and we had one of the loveliest talks I’ve had in a long time.’

While Harry cheekily added: ‘While John was having dinner with Cher I was with Sandra at the Two Puddings, I know who got the best of the deal.’

And while their meeting was romantic, Harry left his campmates in stitches when he  recalled the ‘nightmare’ moment in 2017 he accidentally ran over his wife.

During his first challenge, which saw him in the passenger seat of a jeep, the sports legend said he used to consider himself ‘a good driver’ until the accident.

He said: ‘I used to think I was a good driver but I had a nightmare and ran over my wife one day. 

‘She got out the car and I thought she’d crossed the toad and I pulled forward she fell into the road a bus stopped literally yards away and the most amazing part of the story probably, my grand-daughter is sitting on top of the bus and sees all of this. Unreal.’

‘Shall I turn the engine off so everyone can hear you scream’ said Nick as the football manager prepared to put his hand in the hell hole.

Sandra is the twin sister of footballer Frank Lampard’s late mother Patricia, who passed away in 2008.

Before Harry entered the jungle, he admitted being away from Sandra would be his biggest struggle. 

He told The Sun: ‘That’s the biggest problem I have got. We do everything together.

‘I have been with Sandra for 54 years and I hate being away from her.’
