It comes following report’s that Paul’s recent shoulder injury could have forced him to pull out of the reality show.

According to The Sun, producers of the series met on Saturday evening to discuss whether Paul is fit enough to continue on with the show.

Paul was flown to hospital on Thursday for emergency check-ups after his injury, forcing him to temporarily pull out of filming.

A friend of Paul’s told the publication: ‘He’s dislocated his shoulder. It’s such a shame as he was doing so well.

‘He’s resting while the medical team check him out. The producers are very concerned.

‘He may be pulled out. There are insurance issues as well for them to consider.’

MailOnline contacted a representative for Paul Gascoigne for comment.

Paul appeared to be in the midst of completing an assault course with his fellow Islanders when he got his injury, stripping down to a pair of red beach shorts and a blue life vest.

He had to dash across the beach before climbing over a netted wall, wading through another cargo net and climbing onto the platform to shoot a ball through a basketball hoop. 

The celebrities were competing to win a treat of spaghetti and meatballs for dinner, but it was soon clear that Paul had injured himself. 

Gripping his arm in pain, the host could be heard saying: ‘What’s happened to Paul, he looks in trouble?’

Contestant Gilles Rocca helped Paul away from the cameras to the medical team and correspondent Massimiliano Rosolino told viewers: ‘He hurt his shoulder. The doctor is there and he helped him right away. I don’t know how he is but we have an extraordinary team.’

He later confirmed: ‘Paul is with the medics but the initial view is that he is not seriously hurt.’

Paul was then noticeably absent for the rest of that evening’s show, and missed the latest round of nominations. 

The former Newcastle United and England footballer is currently in Honduras after jetting to the Central Americas country for an appearance on the gruelling series.
