Jamie Redknapp’s Christmas secrets

Fancy spending Christmas Day with Jamie Redknapp? Yes please! The football star turned pundit has teamed up with Vodafone to talk us through a family Christmas with him and Harry and launch an app to help people plan the big day, plus a competition to win your dream Christmas.

Top of the list for Jamie’s planning is taking his son Beau to football matches before catching up with family. His popular father, Harry, is keen to tell tall tales over a glass of red wine, while fellow ex-England star John Barnes is the first fellow he calls.

His Grinch-like gripe is that he always seems to get left with the washing up!

Jamie: “For me, Christmas is all about quality time with loved ones, but with the busy lives we lead, it’s often hard to fit it all in. Christmas is especially busy for us, juggling work commitments and all the kids’ activities. That’s why I was excited to test out Vodafone’s Festive Squad game, as you can play it together even if you’re in different places. It was great to get Beau and my mum into it too – Mum was great! We loved playing it and think other families will love it too.”

Nick Jeffery, Vodafone UK Chief Executive Officer, said: “The run up to Christmas can be a hectic time with shopping to do, nativities to watch and nights out to get ready for. Our Festive Squad game from Very Me brings families and friends together even if they’re in different places. Our Very Me programme this Christmas is our biggest ever with ten festive rewards for every mobile customer. It’s our way of saying thank you and Happy Christmas to our loyal customers.”
