Redknapp gets new job on I’m a Celeb and reveals his Royal faux pas

first_imgHarry Redknapp is my fave “alright Harry” PRINCE Harry 😂 #ImACeleb— lornajG (@GLornaj) November 19, 2018 I could listen to Harry Redknapp talking about smashing his garden to pieces with a jet washer forever 😂 #ImACeleb— Dream Team (@dreamteamfc) November 19, 2018 As well as being talented at football – both as a player and a manager – Harry Redknapp is a remarkable storyteller.He has treated talkSPORT listeners to some fascinating tales from his days in the game and now he’s providing much entertainment for his fellow camp-mates on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. With stories like this, Harry’s already jungle royalty 👑  #ImACeleb@Redknapp @imacelebrity— ITV (@ITV) November 19, 2018He recalled how he bumped into a young girl and got talking about horse racing. The girl explained her grandmother “loved” the sport.It was only after the conversation happened that Harry was told he was speaking to the Queen’s granddaughter, Princess Beatrice.His camp-mates couldn’t believe it when he revealed his double Royal faux pas’ and neither could these fans. Completely adore #HarryRedknapp and the fact he killed his wife’s flowers with the jet wash 😂@imacelebrity #youcouldntmakeitup— PrincessBelle 👸🏻🥀 (@PrincessHales83) November 19, 2018However, there was an even better story coming up when former Tottenham manager Harry recalled the time he bumped into Prince Harry.At first he didn’t recognise the Duke of Sussex and even wondered whether His Royal Highness was a former player of his!And Harry told his intrigued audience how, when Prince Harry acknowledged him, he just replied “alright mate” before continuing to read the newspaper in his hand.But this was not the only Royal Harry had failed to recognise. The first episode saw him recount the time he accidentally ran over his wife Sandra in October 2016. Thankfully, Sandra has since recovered from her injuries so the joke was well-received back home.And after having a cold shower at the crack of dawn on day two (Harry was the first celeb to use the iconic shower this series – what a sight), he told his camp-mates of the time he tried to water his wife’s flowers, with a jet-washer!Get the I’m A Celeb gossip every day with Jamie East’s brand new behind-the-scenes podcastHe said this gardening cock-up led to Sandra nicknaming him ‘Mr Pastry’ because he always makes silly mistakes. It went down well with the camp and these fans on Twitter! Harry Redknapp and his stories are quickly becoming my favourite thing, he needs his own book. #ImACeleb⁠ ⁠— Benny (@Beno_ldn) November 19, 2018 Swear if Harry Redknapp doesn’t win #ImACeleb it’ll be a travesty. Guys the gift that keeps on giving. Mating Prince Harry 😂— Laura-Catherine (@LC_Woods) November 19, 2018But the latest episode showed there was more to Harry than a few funny stories.He’s a great team player and is perhaps earning himself an I’m a Celebrity cult hero status.Harry has taken on the ‘dunny’ (that’s Australian for toilet) cleaning duties in his camp or as he put it “the s*** shoveler”. 1 Redknapp has even emerged as an early favourite to win the show Harry Redknapp has gone from managing in the Champions League…To being appointed “s**t shoveler” in the #ImACeleb jungle emptying toilets 😂— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) November 19, 2018He says he’s happy to do it every day as he claims not to have a sense of smell which has made him even more popular in the camp.The odds on Harry winning the show were slashed after his brilliant first day and they will surely shorten more after another magnificent display.Quite simply, ‘Arry can do no wrong so far and you can remain up to date with it all in the Jungle VIP podcast here.

Uganda target decisive Malawi clash at ANC as power outage forces game abandonment

first_imgComments Monday fixtures-Malawi v Uganda 2pm-Zimbabwe Vs Botswana, 4pm-Namibia Vs Zambia, 6pmThe Uganda Netball team in a group photograph. The team has already secured two victories in the Africa Netball Championship. Courtesy photo.By Pius MagalaWith two wins from the opening two fixtures at the Africa Netball Championship, hosts Uganda are in the driving seat at the six-team tournament. Despite the impressive start that includes the 69-31 and 72-29 wins over Namibia and Botswana, coach Vincent Kiwanuka believes the victories will be of little importance should the She Cranes fail to defeat Malawi on Monday.“They are our biggest threat without doubt,” Kiwanuka said after Sunday’s victory over Namibia.“We just need to avoid complacency. I saw a bit of that today and if we play again like that, we could be punished,” Kiwanuka added.The She Cranes improved in the latter stages of their game against Namibia after a slow start which they led 15-11 before going into the fourth quarter with a 56-24 goal lead.Loughborough Lightning shooter Peace Proscovia and goal attacker Rachael Nayongo scored 42 and 17 goals respectively before being replaced at the end of the third quarter.A She Cranes player in action during one of the games. Courtesy photo.The Malawi Queens, sixth in the world, are the highest ranked team at the tournament with Uganda 13th.The hosts, however, prevailed past their more established opponents defeating them 67-34 and 52-39 in two warm up games.Malawi will rely on Manchester Thunder shooter Joyce Mvuls who joined the team on Friday and helped defeat Zimbabwe 55-45 in their opening game on Sunday.Power outageThe host country, however, suffered some embarrassment when a power failure at the Lugogo MTN Arena forced the abandonment of the late evening game betweenBotswana and Zambia.The latter led 33-31 towards the end of the third quarter with the remainder of the game set to be played first.last_img read more

Teaching children to love themselves

first_imgMany of the children come from disadvantaged backgrounds so Lovy encourages them to develop their self-love and to use this strength in their environment. Work with the mirror, using exercises from the Lovy book, promotes self-awareness and can help a child to deal with a negative self-image. Lovy is aimed at all children aged five to ten years.(Images: Lovy – Loves You)MEDIA CONTACTS • Dee Boehner Kidz2Kidz Trust+27 83 460 4449RELATED ARTICLES• Giving children a sense of pride• The right to dignity• Let’s learn and honour Children’s Act• Pupils get a lesson on dignity• Putting children’s rights firstCadine PillayAccording to life coach Annett Burmester, without knowing it, we often live what is expected of us and not what we truly want. We focus too much on others when it is important to understand our needs, fears and feelings, to recognise our beliefs and behaviour patterns.“What about your attitude towards yourself and your life?” This is the message Burmester wishes to convey to children with backgrounds that often demoralise them.Giving children a chanceOriginally from Germany, Burmester met Dee Boehner, founder of the Cape Town-based Kidz2Kidz Trust, in February 2010 while volunteering with the Santa Shoebox Project in the city.“I fell in love with Cape Town and the city gave me so much which I felt compelled to give back,” Burmester says.As a life coach, the main focus of Burmester’s work is teaching self-love, which is the most important inner strength for more happiness in life. She is also an illustrator, designer and author working on a book about self-love – a perfect mix to create a new project for the children in need.Boehner then proposed the creation of a short book to illustrate the idea of self-love. So Burmester wrote a story book with the character called Lovy, designed the Lovy toy and came up with the name which derives from “Loves You”.Born in South Africa, Lovy is the character portrayed as the hero in the books, and the figure is aimed at all children aged five to ten years to show them how loveable they are.The Lovy books contain a moral lesson, which will help the kids to become more aware of themselves.“It is a good way to allow them to start realising ‘that’s me’ and ‘I am important’,” Burmester says.The story has been written in three languages English, Afrikaans, Sesotho and isiXhosa. More Lovy books in different languages will be available in the future.In 2011 Lovy was run as a pilot project in the Western Cape and in 2012 launched successfully in Gauteng. The intention is to expand the Lovy project around the country.Burmester also holds follow-up sessions, where social workers sit in, with any child who needs additional coaching.Increasing self-esteem Burmester went on to develop Lovy as a special coaching project for children living in children’s homes and orphanages to help them to build their self-esteem and realise their potential. The project carries out group workshops using the Lovy Kit which comprises a Lovy book, a mirror and the cuddly toy called Lovy.“The Lovy toy is important because children need something to cuddle,” Burmester adds. “Having Lovy will give them a feeling of security and warmth. Lovy is like a friend who is always with them and listening to their feelings. They often own nothing, not even a toy.”The Lovy toys are made by seamstresses in the townships which provide opportunities for employment and empowerment.During the workshops Lovy shows children that they are loveable, unique and special. Work with the mirror, using exercises from the Lovy book, promotes self-awareness and can help a child to deal with a negative self-image.“Mirrors are often absent in children’s homes and orphanages. We use the mirror so that the children can say ‘I love me’ – using their very own name, looking into the mirror,” explains Burmester.“Nobody can take away their pain, but they will learn to love themselves and thus gain more and more self-confidence every day.”The mirrors are made from recycled materials by the children as part of the Art2Kidz Project to involve them creatively in the Lovy intiative.The right to be loved and respected“We all have the right to be loved and respected,” says Burmester. “We need to give these children a chance for a better and peaceful world. They are our future too.”Many of the children come from disadvantaged backgrounds so Lovy encourages them to develop their self-love and to use this strength in their environment.“These children have experienced more violence than luck or love in their young lives,” she says. “We show them how they can develop their love of self and use this strength in their environment.”Lovy is orange which is the colour for children as it symbolises joy and confidence. In colour therapy, the colour orange is used to help overcome psychological and mental exhaustion.“Its purpose is to bring more love and happiness into their lives as they are abandoned, afraid, unloved and hurt,” says Burmester. “They will learn to believe in themselves and live again. It will also teach them that we all have a great deal of love in ourselves and that there is nothing wrong with being an orphan.“It touches me again and again when I see how these children soak up Lovy’s message and how they integrate this into their lives.”The Lovy days coincide with 14 February, Valentine’s Day. They are celebrated in children’s homes and orphanages with workshops that share the message: “You are loveable, unique and special”.last_img read more
