Troubled footballer Paul Gascoigne has said he wants to enter the I'm A Celebrity jungle this year.

The former England player, who has battled drink throughout much of this life, said he hoped the show would help him stay away from booze.

Speaking to Alan Carr tonight, the 45-year-old says: “I would love the challenge.

"I’ve had interviews in the last couple of years.”

He added “Every year I say it would be nice to go in and then it starts and I think: ‘Oh, that would be a tough one’.

“But it would be good. I could certainly eat a kangaroo’s anus. I’ve been an arsehole myself a few times – so why not?

“And if I did well, maybe I could get an Iceland advert out of it!”

No doubt if he does enter he'll be wanting to out do his ex Sheryl, who entered the show back in 2010 but was booted out after just one week.

Other names already linked to I'm A Celebrity this year include X Factor star and Celebrity Big Brother housemate Rylan Clark and The Only Way Is Essex's James 'Arg' Argent, as well as Gazza's fellow footballing star Michael Owen.
