Harry Redknapp has discussed his love for his wife Sandra, whom he has been married to for 55 years.
The former association football manager, 75, spoke to The Sunday Times magazine about their union in which he detailed the worst moment of their marriage.
He said: ‘Probably the worst thing I’ve done is accidentally run Sandra over. She’s never held it against me.’

He accidentally mowed down her down in October 2016, in Westbourne, four miles from the couple’s £5million mansion in the wealthy Sandbanks area of Poole, Dorset.
Sandra – who has been married to her husband for 49 years and shares sons Jamie and Mark with him, was heard screaming in agony and had surgery for ligament damage on her ankle.
Sandra said: ‘When Harry knocked me down by accident in his car, I was more worried about him feeling guilty than anything else’
His beloved wife spoke about the accident when she joined Harry for the Sunday Times interview.
She said: ‘When Harry knocked me down by accident in his car, I was more worried about him feeling guilty than anything else.
‘My granddaughter brought me a Primarni [Primark] dressing gown to the hospital, so I ended up on the front page of the newspaper wearing it.
‘I thought surely there must be more important things going on in the world.’
Just months after the shock event. Harry spoke about his sadness over what had occurred.
He said: ‘I thought I had lost her. I thought I had done her foot. I thought a car had hit her. I heard her scream. I didn’t realise it was me.
‘When I got out, at first I thought I had lost her. Then I thought I’d done her foot and I realised it was me.’
A few months on from the incident, Harry revealed his wife was recovering well and insists there was no ill feeling or sarcastic jokes made about it.
He added: ‘She has picked up the last couple of weeks. There has been a massive improvement.
‘I had a couple of months where it was a big concern and she seemed to have lost all her energy.
‘It slaughtered me to see her not well, but she’s picked up great.
‘People say “I bet she’s given you stick” but she’s actually been more concerned about me – that’s how she is.
‘You couldn’t have a row with my wife if you tried. She’s so placid.’
Harry and childhood sweetheart Sandra today married on 30 June 1968.
Jamie Redknapp’s parents met at their local pub aged 17 before tying the knot at Barking Abbey church, close to where they both grew up.
