Paul Gascoigne heading for I’m A Celebrity jungle?


Paul Gascoigne could be heading to the jungle for the next series of ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’.

The troubled ex footballer – who has been battling an addiction to alcohol – has revealed that he turned down the chance to appear on the reality show when bosses approached him a few years ago, but now says he is up for the challenge.

The ex-England ace has said he is “really excited” about the  idea of toughing it out in the Australian  jungle.

“I’m  A Celeb has always been a show I’ve wanted to do one day.  I can’t  wait,” said Gazza.

“I’ve no problem eating insects, and now I’d be there like a shot.”

His former wife Sheryl Gascoigne was a contestant on the tenth series of ‘I’m a Celebrity’, and has been supporting him through his recent battle against the booze.
