Retired footballer Paul Gascoigne had to go to a medical centre after hurting his shoulder on Italy's version of 'I'm A Celebrity'
Paul Gascoigne was rushed to hospital after injuring his shoulder on the Italian version of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'
The 53-year-old former footballer – who spent three years playing for Rome club Lazio – wasn't "seriously hurt", but he was still taken to a medical centre for a check-up and x-rays.
During last night's (25.03.21) episode of 'L’Isola Dei Famosi' – 'The Island of the Famous' – Gazza took part in a trial to try and earn spaghetti and meatballs for the camp.
He had to pick up a ball, get through a ditch and under a cargo net before climbing up a platform and scoring through a basketball hoop.
However, host Ilary Blasi noticed something wasn't right and commented: "What's happened to Paul, he looks in trouble?"
He could be seen in the sea holding his shoulder as Gilles Rocca – who previously won Italy's version of 'Strictly Come Dancing' – helped him get to the medical team.
Ilary's co-host Massimiliano Rosolino later added: "Paul is with the medics but the initial view is that he is not seriously hurt."
Meanwhile, it was previously revealed Paul has been taking intensive Italian lessons ahead of the show.
An insider said: "Paul has a basic grasp of Italian and he can make himself understood. But what we really want to avoid is having subtitles too often as that would ruin it. The idea is to get him up to a good conversational level so he can talk with the other competitors.
"We are expecting some exciting TV from Paul ... The women on the island are all very attractive and range in ages from 22 to 53 – the same age as Paul – and most of them are single. It should make a fascinating watch to see how Paul interacts with these women who are very opinionated and have strong views."
Paul is well known in Italy for playing for Rome football club Lazio in the 1990s.
