Series overview

Brand new series, Harry Redknapp's Sandbanks Summer, produced by Naked Television, sees former Tottenham Hotspur & West Ham United manager and King of the Jungle, Harry Redknapp, invite viewers to find out more about the exclusive place he has called home for 20 years - Sandbanks. Harry Redknapp's Sandbanks Summer gives the audience an insight into this unique part of the British south coast peninsula, one of the most exclusive postcodes in the UK, where property prices are higher than in Monte Carlo.

With some of the most expensive homes in the world, Sandbanks is nicknamed the Hamptons of England and and viewers will get a guided tour of the area from its most famous resident. Harry offers a unique and personal perspective on his much sought-after manor, a far cry from the old East End where he was born and raised.

Each episode sees Harry invite viewers to explore the delights Sandbanks and its environs have to offer. With a host of famous friends joining him along the way, they’ll throw themselves into some of the activities that residents can enjoy. Whether it be with recent friends from the jungle, old friends from football, or the rest of the Redknapp clan, there is plenty to keep them entertained. Harry is also joined by his wife of 51 years, Sandra Redknapp, as they open the doors to their home to reveal a glimpse into the Sandbanks lifestyle.

To really experience this beautiful stretch of the Dorset coast, Harry takes his guests on a variety of adventures including the annual Sandbanks Beach Polo Tournament, swordfighting in a medieval festival at nearby Corfe Castle, an adrenaline fueled powerboat race right in front of his house and a scouting inspired ‘back to basics’ family camping trip to Brownsea Island.
 

Episode 2

It’s episode 2 of Harry Redknapp’s ultimate Sandbanks staycation. This week, Harry is joined by footballing friends John Barnes and Chris Kamara and takes them, and viewers, to the water to show off what Sandbanks has to offer from the sea. 

Harry challenges John and Chris to a full-throttle powerboat showdown on the Solent. Can the king of the jungle master the seas? Or will Harry and Barnsey fall short of ex-navy footballer ‘Kammy-kaze’? The loser of the race has to by supper in at Harry’s favourite chippy, where they sample a local pickled-delicacy and Kammy takes a turn behind the counter. 

The following day Harry, John and Sandra climb aboard a luxury yacht and Harry continues John's whistle stop tour of Sandbanks. A pit-stop at the Cowes Torquay offshore race allows Harry a closer look at the super-fast powerboats that roar past his house, as the sun sets they head back to Sandbanks and Barnsey gets up close and personal with the nudists of Studland Bay.
