When the former footie ace was asked on ITV’s ‘Daybreak,’ on how he felt about himself, he jokingly said, “I love him, he’s beautiful – I just have to get my tooth fixed.”

The 45-year-old former sportsperson described his latest and most alarming brush with death as “horrific.”

Gascoigne revealed that even at his lowest point – when even the detox centre rushed him to hospital and he heard a doctor say that he didn’t think that he would make it – he still managed to make light of the crisis, the Daily Express reported.

Gascoigne raised his head slightly and, with “tubes in my arms and body,” joked about his plants. ┬áHe said that the plants were more important than him but they passed away and he survived.
