London, Jan.1 (ANI): Former England football star Paul Gascoigne will be offered round-the-clock psychological support if he signs up for Celebrity Big Brother.
According to The Sun, producers are desperate to get Gazza in the house with his old rival Vinnie Jones, 44, but fear he may not be able to cope with the pressure.
Gazza, 42, has battled drink and drugs since retiring in 2004 and recently had a spell in rehab.
He had consultations with Big Brother psychologists and has been warned he would face a tough time in the house.
An insider said: "The producers really want Gazza, so they're looking at giving him 24-hour support. His friends are pushing for him to do it as they believe viewers will fall for him all over again. They think he could win - and public support could help him get over his problems."
Jones has been offered a million dollars to participate in the show that starts on Sunday night. (ANI)
