Neil Warnock Is Tempted To Appear On 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!'

I never thought I'd see Harry Redknapp in 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!' but to find out that Neil Warnock - the angriest bloke in football - is interested in appearing in the jungle has done me over.

That's right folks. Cardiff City gaffer Warnock has revealed he is tempted by the lure of the reality TV show.

"I would imagine I'll be in there next year. The lads (Cardiff players) have put my face on Harry's body on the dressing room window." said Warnock via PA.

"I don't think I'd be scared. But the problem is I'd be doing every horrible thing there could be because I'd get the votes."

"It would be payback time. So they'd have to pay me 10 times more than they paid everybody else.

Warnock went on to speak about Redknapp's time on the show, while complementing himself on all the stories he has in his locker.

"That's Harry - that's how we are. Football humour in the jungle is a blessing - it's something that lifts everybody.

"We've all got stories, haven't we? I rabble on here every week at a press conference.

"They've got a good group and I'll watch it a bit more now. The ones I didn't like, the ones which I could scream at, have gone now."

He's quite the character, Neil Warnock.

The 70-year-old usually saves his rants for officials, be that referees or the entirety of the FA when his Sheffield United team were relegated from the Premier League in the midst of the Carlos Tevez scandal.

But on a rather infamous occasion, he was filmed going in on his players during a half-time team talk.

The 68 year old rips into defenders Chris Morgan and Phil Jagielka during his time at Sheffield United, and they aren't happy with the criticism. Who remembers this?

ITV need to make this happen. Imagine the stories...
