EastEnders confirmed I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! favourite Harry Redknapp would be joining the soap for a brief cameo last month, and now it's released a series of first-look images.

As the Albert Square residents celebrate Euro 2020, Harry arrives to visit his friend Rocky (Brian Conley), much to the delight of the locals.

While Rocky looks thrilled sitting with a beverage in the beer garden, Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick) and Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) appear stunned by his arrival.

Speaking of his excitement for the role, Redknapp previously said: "It's no secret that I've wanted to be in EastEnders so I'm over the moon to be making a special cameo this summer.

"With a nod to the Euros, it's a lovely fit and as a proper East Londoner it's been so much fun. [My wife] Sandra's a huge fan, she watches it every day so it's a real special moment for the whole family!"

Executive producer Jon Sen also stated: "What better way to mark a special summer for football fans than by having none other than West Ham legend Harry Redknapp pay a visit to Walford.

"He's synonymous with London's East End and we were delighted to hear he's a fan of the show too. We can't wait for audiences to see what brings Harry to Albert Square."

Meanwhile, earlier this week Rocky's big secret was revealed. After Sonia mistakenly accused him of stealing from people through a charity collection and Kathy Beale's (Gillian Taylforth) purse, he revealed that he is actually rich and looking to buy a house nearby so he can be close to her.

EastEnders will air these scenes on Friday, July 9 on BBC One, while episodes are also premiering early on BBC iPlayer due to Euro 2020.
