Former Villa star Lee Hendrie in a revealing interview.
In light of the return of ITV’s Harry’s Heroes, former footballing villain Lee Hendrie gives an insight into filming the show and his shift to a more media central career. He’s also been exposing his true thoughts on John Gregory, Paul Merson and Dwight Yorke.
In collaboration with Switchbox TV’s The Old Footballers Club, Hendrie explains what audiences can expect from the show’s new series. He outlined that the new series will uncover a roller coaster of emotions; focusing on the cast’s personal situations, to the typical changing room camaraderie and banter.
“It was a hell of a lot of filming and we have had such fun. You will see for yourself, some of the things we got up to were absolutely brilliant. It is almost like euro trash slash personal development. It was the closest thing I am going to get to playing football again,” he stated.
Hendrie made a brief appearance on the show’s previous series and explained how being allowed to star, as a
main contributor on this year’s series, was a huge privilege.
“The lads were asked whom they would prefer to be on the show and obviously I knew the boys. They all wanted
me on the show. I think they needed that fitness aspect. You will see in a lot of the games that I have certainly put
my shift in”, he added.
Switchbox TV has also interviewed Harry’s Heroes stars and former footballing legends, Lee Sharpe and Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock.
Further interviewees within The Old Footballers Club include Ron Atkinson, Sam Allardyce, Paul Walsh, Tony
Cottee and Alan McInally, as well as several other footballing talents.
