Footie boss Harry Redknapp pictured in Albert Square as he films EastEnders appearance

HARRY Redknapp grins and flings his arms open in the first images of him filming on Albert Square.

Our exclusive pictures show the footie legend, 74, surprising characters Terry ‘Rocky’ Cant and Billy Mitchell, played by Brian Conley and real life West Ham fan Perry Fenwick.

And East-Londoner Harry looked thrilled to be on the famous set.

His cameo, which comes after he urged the soap’s bosses to give him a role in a Sun on Sunday interview in January, will air on the show next month.

The former West Ham boss plays himself in a scene in which he visits “good friend” Rocky – causing a stir as the Walford residents are celebrating the Euros.

He will also be seen strolling into the Queen Vic pub to have a chat with Mick Carter, played by another real-life Hammers fan – Danny Dyer.

Thrilled Harry said on set: “I’ve watched it (EastEnders) so many times over the years, so to be here is just fantastic.


"I just thought I’d pop into the Vic for a pint.

“It’s amazing being here, as I say, watching the programme for so many years.

"And my missus don’t miss it. It’s her favourite.”
