Former England legend Paul ‘Gazza’ Gascoigne sky-rocketed to fame as a result of his prowess on the pitch. This month marks 25 years since Paul’s famous dentist’s chair goal celebration during the England vs Scotland match in Euro '96.
And as we're on the edge of our seats during the all-important matches, Paul too will be cheering along from his luxury seaside flat in Poole, Dorset.
Paul has certainly made the home his own, and has an array of trinkets and collectables scattered about the airy space.
In an exclusive house tour with OK! the football pro invited us in to take a closer look at the luxurious trappings of his abode.
Walk past the stone exterior and into Paul’s flat and you’ll find a large and spacious kitchen which oozes modern vibes.
The kitchen cabinets are cream and there’s a toaster and kettle in matching colours, as well as a coffee machine for Paul’s caffeine fix.
In the centre of the space there’s a chic kitchen island with two stools pushed beneath, perfect for propping up at during breakfast.
Moving through to the lounge you’ll discover a room with a similar colour scheme, with cream walls, sofa and brown carpets.
There’s a cream table sitting centre stage atop a blue carpet, and Gazza’s TV is in the perfect position for him to sit back and watch all of the Euros action.
Football memorabilia is present in the home, including a photo of Paul’s iconic Euros '96 goal.
Also present in the lounge-meets-diner is a large glass dining table with chairs with plump cream cushions on pushed underneath.
In a nod to the surrounding area, with Bournemouth and Sandbanks a stone’s throw away, Paul has a bowl of shells and beachy items on his coffee table.

There are also candles dotted about and trinkets, including a globe and a porcelain owl.
The Dorset-based flat has an outdoor area too, including a balcony with overlooks stunning foliage and bushes of purple flowers.
After an on-off battle with alcohol addiction – which led him to have anti-alcohol stomach implants and treatment in rehab – Paul now lives a quiet life at his home.
Despite his thick Geordie accent, Paul is very softly spoken, gentlemanly and looks well for his 54 years. While some of this is down to a touch of Botox, his stint in Italy’s I’m A Celeb… has clearly done him the world of good.
The ex-England and Spurs star admitted to OK! that the 12-week appearance was like “therapy” as he was without his beloved coffee, ciggies and mobile phone, while overcoming both the starvation and challenges left him feeling mentally strong.
“I’m really feeling good,” he tells us. “It was very tough, but it was good for me and I’m glad I did it. Now I want to do the Australian one!”
