But no. It appears the former Tottenham
and West Ham manager is anything but - at least if the opening I'm A Celebrity episode is anything to go by.
After fellow camp mate Nick Knowles had clinched the opening task - allowing the celebs to choose their next red team member - Redknapp went in for a high five.
Except it all went wrong. Knowles was too busy reading the task instructions and Harry - as the picture above shows - was left hanging!
It wasn't the best start from the 71-year-old, who had a mini meltdown when he got into camp too.

After winning the first task and being given emu for dinner Redknapp was left seething at the food on offer.
"I thought there'd be a cheese roll in there but they said it was emu," Harry said.
"I didn't even think people ate emu. I've got to be honest, I don't think I can eat emu."
Ahead of the show Redknapp revealed what his family really think about him going into the jungle.
His wife Sandra, who he wed back in 1967, in particular thinks he is 'mad' to be taking part.
Even his professional footballer son Jamie Redknapp and model son Mark Redknapp have questioned if his dad's appearance is a good idea.
Harry revealed: 'My son Jamie thinks I am definitely not the full shilling! And Mark is like, 'Are you sure you want to do this dad?'
The ex-Spurs manager is not allowing his family's doubts stop him from looking forward to taking part.
He continued: 'It will be good fun.'
