Speaking to his camp-mate, the father of former footballer Jamie Redknapp, explained: ‘Me and my mate Macca, he was a goalkeeper for West Ham, saw these two lovely girls and I said to Macca shall we have a dance with those two.

‘Macca is a good looking geezer and I look back on it now and think Sandra must have seen us both coming over and thought “I hope I ain’t got him” (referring to himself) and she went for me, 54 years later we’re still going strong.’
