Paul Gascoigne has been seen wearing a sling on his arm during a video call on Isola dei Famosi, the Italian version of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

The former football legend was rushed to hospital after injuring his shoulder on the reality series last week and was treated for emergency check-ups forcing him to temporarily pull out of filming.

Paul joined the programme via FaceTime in the latest episode of the show and appeared to be in high spirits despite his ailment, saying that his shoulder was ‘so, so’.

He was also asked whether or not he will be returning to the programme, however a comeback so far remains uncertain.

It’s said Gazza, who is currently filming the Italian series on the Caribbean island of Honduras, was taking part in a trial minutes into the show in an attempt to earn spaghetti with meatballs when he was injured and seen in pain on the shore.

The England ace was challenged with grabbing a ball, scrambling through a ditch and then wading under a cargo net before climbing a platform to score a basketball hoop in hopes of landing the meal, publications claim.

However, it’s alleged the show’s host Ilary Blasi soon spotted something was wrong mid-challenge and asked: ‘What’s happened to Paul, he looks in trouble?’

Co-host Massimiliano Rosolino reportedly then told viewers: ‘Paul is with the medics but the initial view is that he is not seriously hurt.’

Paul is one of 16 celebrities taking place in Isola dei Famosi.

Model and winner of Miss Italia 2019 Carolina Stramare was announced as one of the original contestants but decided to drop out of the competition before it started due to family health issues.

Meanwhile, Italian Viscount and entrepreneur Ferdinando Guglielmotti walked.
