I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! 2018 winner Harry Redknapp returned to TV screens tonight (March 18) with his new two-part show Harry's Heroes: The Full English.
When he's not chomping down on jam roly-polies, Harry's collecting a group of England footballing legends to see if they can regain their fitness (and skill) years after retirement.
The aim? To play a full 11-a-side match against their German counterparts, in hope of extinguishing the nations' long-held rivalry.
Although tonight's episode was a hit for numerous reasons – including the awesome nostalgia flowing through every scene, not to mention Neil 'Razor' Ruddock's humour – its raising awareness of mental health struck the biggest chord with viewers.
Gambling and drugs were two demons which followed Paul around during his phenomenal career, and his candid discussion about their effect on his life was praised by viewers of the show. Here's what they had to say:
#Harrysfullenglish is absolutely spot on! Men’s mental health, general health and passion for football! Superb- Olly (@OliverBourne15) March 18, 2019

It was certainly nice to see the King of the Jungle back on television tonight, and even Harry's wife Sandra popped on screen for a brief appearance.
Harry's Heroes: The Full English concludes tomorrow night (March 19) at 9pm on ITV.
