In the interview, Gascoigne was asked about his Italian, to which he said in his strong Geordie accent: ‘It’s OK. It’s only the first day, I’m hoping to improve it.’

He added: ‘I’m not speaking perfect Italian.’

Paul also suffered a language gaffe when asked what he was looking forward to, he repeatedly said: ‘serpente’ (snakes). 

Not one to give up, Paul said in Italian: ‘Fishing good me, very good me.

‘I’m not perfect speaking Italian’: In the interview Gascoigne was asked about his Italian, to which he said in his Geordie accent: ‘It’s OK. It’s only the first day. I’m hoping to improve’ 

‘Hands fish my, team hungry me. Confidence, first day, better speak, soon.’

He added: ‘I’m here for a laugh and the experience,’ before adding in English: ‘I’ll see you all on the f******g island’. 

According to The Sun, a presenter said from the studio: ‘Paul Gascoigne made us laugh with his pidgin Italian.

‘Nonsense words, wrong words but to be fair he managed to make himself understood.’

Paul appeared to have already struck up a friendship with Italian actor Gilles, 38, as they were seen hugging on the beach after their dramatic arrivals. 

Paul, who passed a series of mental and physical tests for the show, recently claimed he was banned from joining the cast of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Here! after failing a psych test back in 2009.

He told The Sun: ‘I did interviews for I’m A Celebrity in the UK but they pre-judged me. They wanted to sign me for the show, but when it came to speaking to the psychiatrist they really p***ed me off.

‘She asked me, ”Why do you want to do the show?” and I said, ”I want people to see the real Paul Gascoigne”. But she said, ”People don’t want to see that, they want to see you in arguments”. That really p****ed me off. 

‘I wasn’t happy about that. And the questions she asked me were ridiculous. She was asking me if I knew where I was, and I said London, and ‘whereabouts, what can you see’. I’m not dealing with stupid questions like that.’
