Sporting legend Paul Gascoigne has taken part in the live trial on the third episode of Italy's version of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here.

Gazza, 53, is currently one of a handful of stars competing in Isola Dei Famosi [Island Of The Famous].

Dressed in a plain grey t-shirt, Paul can be seen putting on a pair of protective goggles before the trial kicks off.

Despite his poor knowledge of the Italian language, Gazza has won over his campmates.

Last week his co-star model and porn star Eva Henger, 48, said she had connected with him the most while watching the series.

She said: "I'm in love with Paul Gascoigne.

"He's the number one person on the island and is so funny, I can't stop laughing every time he says or does something."

Eva, who starred on the show herself three years ago, added: "To get ahead and win you have to be a character and have a personality and from what I have seen that's Gascoigne."

The show is set to run for up to two months and is set ion the Coyos Cochinos islands off the coast of Honduras in the Caribbean Sea.

However, one person Gazza has struggled to bond with is Italian YouTuber Awed after they clashed over pizza toppings.

Awed was left disgusted after Gazza said he loves nothing more than pineapple on his pizza.

The former footballer said: "My favourite is ham and pineapple pizza.

"Thin and crispy, It’s delicious. You can’t beat it. It’s the best."

Looking horrified, Awed replied: "You do what? Mamma mia! That’s disgusting.

"Pizza is a savoury dish, you put savoury toppings on it, not a sweet topping. Yuck!"

Defending his taste, Gazza smiled: "No, no, you’re wrong. It’s delicious!"
