The 45-year-old former footballer has downplayed the potential of him and the former 'The Inbetweeners' actress going out, after she admitted to his dad, Harry Redknapp, on the recent 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' series that she is a big fan of the pundit.

When asked by ex-Aston Villa footballer Dean Saunders on talkSPORT's 'Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast' show what would be more likely out of Liverpool winning the Champions League or Jamie taking Emily out, Jamie responded: "What's more likely did you say?

"Ah Deano come on. Leave it out.

"Listen, she's a very nice girl isn't she. Let's leave it at that."

Harry was voted the new King of The Jungle during Sunday night's (09.12.18) finale, with Emily taking second place.

While in the jungle, the former West Ham, Spurs and Portsmouth boss bonded with the curvaceous blonde, who urged Jamie to give her a call when she was out.

The 28-year-old star admitted she was hopeful she might be able to hook up with the hunky Sky Sports pundit now she has left the jungle and got her make-up back on.

She said: "I am sure if he had seen me in action over the last few weeks he might not be up for it.

"But I've got my make up on now, so he might be!"

Harry also cheekily admitted he thinks the former 'Dancing on Ice' contestant has a better chance with his son now she has "scrubbed up" and left the jungle.

He said: "I'll be honest, when I saw her in the jungle I thought, 'No chance.'

"I thought, 'No, you ain't got a prayer.'

"But I've seen her today when she's scrubbed up and she looks alright, I'm telling you."
