Good Morning Britain fans slam ‘rude’ Adil Ray as he makes alcohol joke at Gazza

Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Good Morning Britain viewers were left seething on Wednesday as Adil Ray and Susanna Reid chatted to football legend Paul Gascoigne.

The 53-year-old sporting star has recently taken part in the Italian version of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and appeared on the ITV breakfast show to discuss his time on the gruelling television series.

During the interview, comedian Adil pointed out that Gazza, who has previously battled alcoholism, has "had a few tipples" since he played for S.S Lazio., where L'Isola dei Famosi or The Island of the Famous was filmed.

Angry viewers took to social media to slam the presenter's "rude question".

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Adil Ray to Gazza: 'You've had a few tipples since you were at Lazio' (Just shows what a crass nasty guy he is)"

Another added: "Adil channelling his inner Partridge say Gazza has 'had a few tipples since then'."

A third person posted: "I really don’t think it’s okay for

@adilray to say to someone who has had serious battles with drink problems, almost costing his life “and you’ve had a few tipples since then. How rude. Face with raised eyebrow."

While a fourth person moaned: "Adil so far today. Mocking the Welsh Language, Asking an Alcoholic if he'd had a few tipples? Errrr Excuse me @GMB are your PRODUCERS missing from the Studio today?"

Gazza kicked off the interview by showing off his Italian language skills.

Adil remarked: "Gazza, it's amazing though. You were at Lazio three seasons so three years. I'm guessing thats where you picked it up.

"And to hold on to it, that's some time ago as well and you've had a few tipples since then swell so to keep that in you well, thats impressive."

Gaaza replied: "When I played in Lazio all I know was some football words and how to order a beer."

Adil was forced to apologise to viewers during the interview after Gazza accidentally let slip a curse work live on air.

Speaking about an injury he received on the show, Gazza said: "I felt my shoulder go, and I thought sh*t, just pop the ball back in and I'll be okay," Paul explained as he described one of the trials he was set to compete in."

Adil jumped in to say: "Before we carry on Gazza, I'm gonna apologise on your behalf. A bit of foul language we heard there, I know it was purely accidental on your part."

"Oh, that's nothing!" Paul interjected.

The presenter had to quickly say: "All right, easy! Easy, easy!"

As the conversation moved swiftly on to discuss Gazza's legendary naked sunbathing, Susanna, 50, laughed: "We had to censor that as well!"
