Paul Gascoigne, 53, revealed that a collection of personal effects were stolen from his home in Poole, Dorset, while he had attended the filming of Life Stories hosted by Piers Morgan. Gazza had been in the audience to support his friend Vinnie Jones, who opened up on the devastating loss of his wife Tanya Jones following her battle with skin cancer.
Must have been hungry
The football legend has said police informed him that a tweet sent by Piers alerted thieves that he would not be home, after the journalist shared a photo of them together in the London film studio.
However, despite thousands of pounds being stolen, including a gold watch he inherited from his dad John, who died of cancer in 2018, Gazza maintained he is not angry with Piers.
The thieves also took two steaks from his freezer.
Gazza commented: “Police think that the picture Piers posted of us filming in London could have alerted burglars that I was away.

“But they must have been hungry, they took my two steaks out of the freezer."
Among the treasures stolen was a £40,000 showstopper watch purchased with his first paycheck while playing for Tottenham Hotspur.
Gazza made light of the situation, as he joked: “Piers, I’ll let you off on the gold watch, but you owe me two f**king steaks.”
Life Stories with Vinnie Jones aired last night and turned into an emotional occasion for the two former footballers.
