JOKER Paul Gascoigne has had millions of TV viewers in stitches with his crazy mix of Geordie and Italian.
Former footie ace Gazza, 53, is starring on Italy’s version of I’m A Celebrity.
And his tortured pronunciation is leaving the confused studio audience in hysterics.
When asked how his Italian was by host Ilary Blasi, Gazza, who spent three years with Rome club Lazio, replied: “It’s OK. It’s only the first day, I’m hoping to improve it.”
And he had the audience creasing up as he was asked what he was looking forward to and kept saying “serpente” (snakes) after misunderstanding the question.
He then added: “Sing Paul Gascoigne la, la, la, audience Island of the Famous, see me.”
“Fishing good me, very good me. Hands fish my, team hungry me. Confidence, first day, better speak, soon.”
Before jumping out of a chopper into the Caribbean, Gazza said in Italian: “I’m here for a laugh and the experience.” He then added in English: “I’ll see you all on the f island.”
Studio guests said he was down to earth with a strong physique which would be useful on the island off Honduras where L’Isola Dei Famosi, or the Island of the Famous, is being filmed.
Italian singer Elettra Lamborghini, one of the studio commentators, said: “I love Paul Gascoigne.
"He is so funny. I’d never heard of him but he’s making me laugh all the time. He’s my favourite so far.”
And one Italian TV critic said: “Paul Gascoigne made us laugh with his pidgin Italian.
"Nonsense words, wrong words but to be fair he managed to make himself understood.”
