Paul Gascoigne has revealed that he would love Danny Dyer playing him in a movie about his life.
The football legend, 53, said in an interview with The sun on Friday that talks about a ‘big movie’ made about his life after his stint in the Italian version of I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Outta Here.
Thinking about who would be a good choice, he claimed the 43-year-old EastEnders actor would be the best man to take the lead, saying he thinks Danny was going to be a “ great Gazza. ”

The former Tottenham Hostpur ace teased the project, saying: ‘There are plans for a big movie about my life.
‘I would like Danny Dyer to play with me. The guy from EastEnders would be a great Gazza. ‘
According to reports, the biopic would portray Paul’s childhood, from his upbringing in a Gateshead household to his addictions later in life with both alcohol and cocaine.

This comes after the sportsman was forced to quit the Italian real estate show, L’Isola dei Famosi, about a month after his debut.
He initially returned to the show last month after being rushed to hospital when he injured himself during an endurance match.
But according to local reports, the sportsman was forced to bend his performance on the show after persistent shoulder pain.
He had previously revealed that despite his accident, he would be willing to return to the program.

At the time, the star said he was “ pretty good, ” adding that his shoulder was “ so, so, ” as host Ilary Blasi asked for updates on his health.
However, he was seen on the show with his arm in a sling, and in recent photos taken at his hotel, he was still seen with the protective aid.
The sports legend would face ‘mental challenges’ as his injury forced him to participate in physical competitions for the remainder of the competition.
According to The sunPaul said, “It hurts when I hear people say things like this, especially since when we arrived we were all friends and now people are against each other.
‘I had 30,000 angry people every weekend saying,’ You fat b ***** d ‘. So you think two or three people complaining behind my back will hurt me? No, I’m just going to laugh. ‘
“We’re looking at some Italian language tests or maybe questions about arithmetic or geography.”
MailOnline contacted a representative of Paul Gascoigne at the time for comment.
The media personality has reportedly been paid around 7,000 Euros (£ 5,981) for every week he participated on the show.
And last month, the star stood out for other reasons, making history by being the first contestant to sunbathe naked on the Italian show.
