Harry Redknapp joins EastEnders as Karen's ex and Bernie's dad?

Harry Redknapp will be making an appearance in EastEnders later this year, but could he be portraying Karen Taylor’s (Lorraine Stanley) ex and Bernie’s (Clair Norris) dad?

That would be a no, but actress Clair Norris would’ve seemingly be all for such a thing.

‘I would love Bernie’s dad to come in,’ the soap star told Inside Soap.

‘At one point, I did message our boss Jon Sen to say: “How about Harry

‘I’d read that Harry wanted to join EastEnders – this was ages ago,
when he’s just come out of the I’m A Celebrity jungle.

‘That would have been funny.’

Harry will, however, be arriving in Albert Square this summer for a special cameo.

‘It’s no secret that I’ve wanted to be in EastEnders,’ said the football legend, ‘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. Sandra’s a huge fan, she watches it every day so it’s a real special moment for the whole family!’

EastEnders’ Executive Producer Jon Sen added: ‘What better way to mark a special summer for football fans 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.’
