Gazza was reportedly targeted while watching the filming of Vinnie Jones’ Life Stories interview with Piers Morgan.
Jones – who grabbed Gazza’s private parts during a game between Wimbledon and Newcastle – is a close friend of former England star Gascoigne and is credited with supporting the Gateshead-born footballer in his fight against addiction.
Speaking to Dan Warburton of The Sunday People, Gazza said, “My father’s things meant so much to me that I would really love them.
The thieves took a gold cigar cutter and a watch belonging to Gazza’s late father John, who died of cancer two years ago, along with a £ 40,000 gold watch that the footballer bought with the first paycheck he got after Terry Venables signed it for. Spurs.
Former Lazio man Gazza believes the burglars saw an opportunity to target his Dorset seaside apartment when Piers Morgan posted a photo of him supporting Jones to the Life Stories audience on Monday.
Gazza says he remained calm when he first found out that his apartment had been raided, but he became moved when he realized his father’s precious gift was missing.
He told the Sunday People, “They’ve also looked through a lot of personal stuff, they’ve read the poems I wrote to myself, they’ve even gone through my will.
Piers Morgan apologized to Gazza but promised to replace the meat taken from his refrigerator.
Speaking to the Sunday People, the Good Morning Britain host said: “I definitely posted something on Twitter confirming he was at Elstree Studios.
“I am so sorry to hear about this. Paul is a great guy and the last thing he needs is to be robbed at a time like this. If social media alerted people to the fact that he was not at home, that would be extremely unfortunate. The least I can do is buy him new steaks. Does he want a T-bone or a sirloin? “
