Football legend Harry, 72, told Piers Morgan at MailOnline and SportsMail's A Pint With Piers event at the Hollywood Arms in London's Chelsea on Wednesday, that Ian's 'hanger' will be the reason he's tipped over the edge.
He explained that Ian, 56, 'has a short fuse' - and went on to predict that Kate Garraway, 52, could win the show, taking his crown as the reigning winner.
Predictions: Harry Redknapp believes that Ian Wright 'is gonna blow soon' on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
'I like Kate [Garraway]! But I’d like Wrighty [Ian Wright] to win it - I think he’s gonna blow though,' Harry mused. 'I know him better than anyone and he’s got a short fuse. He’ll get hangry!'
Also in attendance was footballer Peter Crouch, 38, who added: 'I've not been watching the jungle. I've been watching [BBC drama] Gold Digger instead.
'But I’d like Ian to win obviously!'
Harry was crowned King Of The Jungle in 2018, when he beat Emily Atack in the grand final.

The current round of celebrities entered the jungle on Sunday night, with Ian also joined by the likes of rugby pro James Haskell, Kardashians star Caitlyn Jenner, and EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa.
And as Harry weighed in on Ian at the event on Wednesday, it looked like his sporting pal was indeed reaching boiling point as he snapped at comedian Andrew Maxwell during a tense dinner.
The former Arsenal star quipped that he 'didn't f*****g want' anymore crocodile despite being offered seconds multiple times, just hours after admitting that he was 'struggling' with camp life.
Earlier in the show, Ian candidly told James that he was already at the end of his tether of days of 'bland' meals, and later said in the Bush Telegraph they reminded him of his days playing for Arsenal.

As the camp settled down for a dinner of crocodile feet, many of the celebrities were unimpressed with the offering, especially after Roman Kemp and Adele Roberts won ten stars for the camp.
Andrew asked Ian: 'Everybody's ate - there's two [feet] there.'
Ian was reluctant to tuck into the meal, adding: 'I really honestly don't want no more, he needs it more than I do, so he can have another one if he wants.'
As Andrew continued to insist that he should eat more, Ian suddenly hit back: 'I said I don't want no more f*****g crocodile bro I don't want no more.

Angry: Ian hit back - 'I said I don't want no more f*****g crocodile bro I don't want no more,' before adding that the line of questioning was 'annoying'
'There's nothing more for us to eat and then you're saying no and someone continues to ask you, it's annoying.'
Kate admitted that it was a 'hard day' in the camp, with Jacqueline adding that some of the stars were already starting to get 'agitated'.
Later in the Bush Telegraph Ian admitted: 'It's just when people go on about eating I said god...
'It's only four days and it's like that because tensions will creep in, that's where the test will come when people start getting on your nerves, so far no one has done that yet but it is early doors.'

Earlier in the day Ian spoke candidly about how he's struggling to adjust to jungle life, as he headed to the jungle with rugby player James.
He said: 'I feel like I'm gonna struggle, I just can't stop thinking about just stuff and food, the boredom. If we don't have the decent food, I will struggle to eat rice and beans, it's not even a joke.'
Later in the Bush Telegraph the sporting legend added: 'I don't think it's even been five days yet and I'm already struggling with the eating.'

Offering his own perspective James added, 'This isn't about cakes and food, it's about…,' to which Ian responded: 'Survival.'
'This is about fuelling your body so you can get through the day,' James added.
'That doesn't make it any easier to swallow does it?' Ian hit back.
Later in the Bush Telegraph, Ian compared his basic camp meals to the food he received when he played under Arsene Venger.

Arsene took over as Arsenal manager in 1996, and took inspiration from Japanese cuisine by replacing burgers and chips with fish, chicken and steamed vegetables.
He said: 'When Arsene Wenger first came to Arsenal we literally changed from eating what we wanted, to bland food. It's almost taking me back to remember how bland the food was.'
James offered Ian some perspective about the food, and said it's better for him to view the meals as little more than fuel, and said it would be 'a disgrace' if the star quit the show now.

The revelation didn't sit well with Ian, who sulkily walked away, adding in the Telegraph: 'James and Andrew have concern for me eating, it's nice.'
Andrew said that they should 'just enjoy the lack of control' that comes with jungle life, before breaking into an impromptu song about 'doing nothing'.
Later in the day, Ian also struggled to hide his disappointment when Kate and Myles Stephenson failed to return from the Dingo Dollar Challenge with the prize of chocolate eggs.
