EastEnders fans were left in hysterics as Harry Redknapp made his big cameo on the Square.
The football legend, 74, visited Walford on Friday’s episode to pay a visit to his good friend Terry “Rocky” Cant ( Brian Conley ).
Despite scepticism that Harry would show – including from Rocky’s daughter Sonia Fowler ( Natalie Cassidy ) – the locals got a shock when Harry made his big appearance on the Square and embraced Rocky.
Harry later stepped foot inside the Queen Vic pub to the glee of long-term West Ham fan Mick Carter ( Danny Dyer ).
The I’m A Celebrity winner asks Mick: “Hello governor, can I get a pint, please?”

A dumbstruck Mick looks at Linda ( Kellie Bright ) who says, “Coming right up.”
Mick then asks for Harry’s autograph and says: “I’ve been Hammers since birth, me”.
He then rates Harry as “one of the greatest West Ham managers of all time” to which Harry says that it’s “nice” of Mick to say.
After some jokes about Harry managing Tottenham Hotspur, Harry tells Mick it’s a “nice pub”.

Harry also praises the photo of Bobby Moore in the pub, noting “No-one in the world like him, mate. Bobby Moore, what a man he was.”
Linda then lies to Harry that she’s a big fan despite making clear earlier that she wasn’t.
Mick then awkwardly makes clear that Harry is welcome back in the Vic any time.
As he exits the pub with a pint, Billy Mithcell grabs a selfie with Harry in the background.
Harry then speaks with Rocky and tells him he’s lucky to have Sonia but she’s glad she has him too.
