The Walford-based soap will be getting a special cameo appearance this summer.

Following reports of the football star spotted on set, it has been confirmed that Harry Redknapp will join the cast of 'EastEnders' for a cameo experience.

The football manager's appearance will coincide with the European Championships, which kick off this June.

It turns out that Redknapp and his wife Sandra are huge fans of the soap. He said: "It's no secret that I've wanted to be in 'EastEnders' 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. It's a real special moment for the whole family."

'EastEnders' said Redknapp's "legendary status among West Ham supporters guarantees Harry will be welcomed to Walford with open arms as the residents of the Square celebrate the tournament."

Jon Sen, executive producer of the BBC soap 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."

Will Harry Redknapp get involved in a bust-up on the set of 'EastEnders'? Here's hoping his presence will cause some sort of ruckus for the characters in and around Albert Square and The Queen Vic.

'EastEnders' was recently nominated for a BAFTA Award, which pits them up against 'Coronation Street', 'Hollyoaks', and 'Casualty'. The winner will be announced during the ceremony on Sunday, June 6.
