EastEnders fans are in for a treat as Harry Redknapp is set to arrive in Walford this week.
BBC have given fans a glimpse of his explosive entrance in first look images which show the 74-year-old star walking into the Queen Vic pub.

EastEnders airs Mondays and Fridays at 8pm, and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One.
