Jamie Rednapp has laughed off his hilarious shirtless cameo in his dad Harry’s live interview – joking that his father didn’t tell him he had a Zoom call.
On Monday the former Liverpool ace, 47, was left visibly shocked after he unintentionally crashed the video chat while heading to the bathroom.
Explaining what happened while appearing on Good Morning Britain with the football veteran, 74, on Thursday, Jamie said: ‘He knew I had to shower.

‘I remember, there is a lingering look [from me] but I think it was more a look of dismay like, “why didn’t tell me you were on Zoom?”
Host Susanna Reid then laughed as she quizzed the star, saying: ‘Did you think he was talking to himself?
Jamie replied: ‘I thought he was on the phone, Susanna! I couldn’t believe it.
‘And I know you’ve got Ben. [Shephard] in there and he can’t wait to get his kit off, I’ve done Soccer Aid with him.’

Ben then laughed as he teased Jamie and replied: ‘Not when my old man’s on the phone Jamie, I’ll spare him that! That’s a step too far quite frankly.’
On Monday, Harry made an appearance on talkRADIO from his home to share his views on the controversial then new, and now called off, European Super League.
However, Jamie appeared to be blissfully unaware of the interview when he casually strolled into shot without his top on.
Appearing to carry toiletries in one hand, the father-of-two stopped in his tracks as he gazed at the discussion-in-progress.
Realising that the show must go on, the sportsman then rapidly opened the door and darted into the room while making little more fuss during the hilarious moment.

Ever the professional, Harry smoothly continued discussing the recently announced football league, though he also appeared unaware of what had happened.
Taking the opportunity to share the laughs with their social media followers, the team at talkRADIO tweeted the video later that day.
Captioning the seconds-long clip, they wrote: ‘Was Mark Dolan’s interview with Harry Redknapp almost interrupted by a topless Jamie Redknapp?’
Harry and his son Jamie were staying at Goodluck Hope, one of Ballymore’s exclusive riverside developments whilst the pair film a new show.
It came as Boris Johnson threatened to drop a ‘legislative bomb’ immediately on Tuesday, to stop England’s ‘Big 6’ football clubs joining the European Super League, even though they are already signed up to the £4.3billion competition until 2046.

The Prime Minister met with the FA, Premier League, the PFA and fans and told them the Government will not stand by while a small handful of owners create a ‘closed shop’ and destroy England’s 132-year-old football pyramid.
It is understood that Johnson said that whilst he was a staunch free marketeer, he believed the breakaway competition was ‘anti-competitive’, that a ‘legislative bomb’ such as a new law should be dropped to stop it and that it ‘should be done now’.
Threatening to force a new law through Parliament, Johnson’s spokesman said: ‘He was clear that no action is off the table and the Government is exploring every possibility, including legislative options, to ensure these proposals are stopped.
‘The Prime Minister confirmed the Government will not stand by while a small handful of owners create a closed shop’.
Prince William, President of the FA, had warned the proposals could ‘damage the game we love’.
And even Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has come out against it, telling clubs like Liverpool, founded by the church, they should think about the communities they serve.

And just a day after Harry (and Jamie’s) interview on Monday, the European Super League was in tatters.
It took just 48 hours for a scheme devised by a dozen of the continent’s leading football clubs to crumble under the weight of disgust and dismay from fans and the wider game.
On a chaotic evening, all six Premier League clubs signed up announced on Tuesday that they had withdrawn. It followed protests by fans across the UK and widespread condemnation from FIFA, UEFA, the FA and other national associations.
The final nail in the coffin came on Wednesday when Juventus supremo Andrea Agnelli admitted a European Super League cannot go ahead without the support of the English clubs.
Now the plan has been called off, the majority of those clubs involved all face an awkward reunion with UEFA in next season’s Champions League.
The two Manchester sides look likely to take their place in the 2021-22 Champions League through Premier League performance, while Chelsea and Liverpool are still battling for a top-four finish.
Arsenal and Tottenham look likely to miss out on the Champions League and will be left looking from the outside in at European football’s elite.
