Jungle fever

Paul Gascoigne has been kicked off I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here after the brass at ITV decided that he was 'mentally unfit' to go on the show.

According to The Sun, bosses at the station decided that after Susan Boyle's recent meltdown, they couldn't risk another high profile star going off the rails thanks to one of their shows.

'Paul Gascoigne was given a psychiatric test to see how he was, but he failed it,' said a source at the show. 'It was such a shame considering bosses had been trying to get him on the show for years.

'However they realised it was just too much of a risk for him to enter the jungle and be under such intense public scrutiny.'
