David Seaman and Paul Gascoigne will star in their own fishing show with Seaman saying it will be ‘hilarious’.

It’s not clear when the show featuring the two good friends will air, nor on what channel

“It will be hilarious because he is a handful when he is fishing, trust me. I’m not sure how much fishing will get done,” Seaman said.

“It will probably involve him taking the mickey out of me and me pushing him in the water.”

Yes, yes, I know you all want to make a joke about Paul Gascoigne when it comes to fishing and bodies of water. After all, the former Tottenham man fell into a fly fishing lake in Winchester, having to be dragged out.

Gascoigne also turned up at a deadly stand-off between police and spree killer, Raoul Moat, in a bid to help the murderer when off his face.

“You’ve got to realise I’m half cut anyway, sitting in the living room, I’ve got about six lines [of cocaine] lined up,” explained the ex-Spurs midfielder during his ‘Evening with Paul Gascoigne’ talk in November 2015.

“I’m not realising much but a good line and me and Raoul Moat are sort of friends. A couple more lines and we are good buddies.

“A few whiskies, another few lines, I’ve had about eight lines and we went to school together.

“He was in Rothbury, that’s where I used to go fishing so I know the area quite well.”

“Another line and I have a couple of fishing rods and a chicken. He’s going to need a drink. I’ve had 14 lines now and he’s my brother,” he recalled.

“I’ve got my fishing rods, I’ve got Barbour jacket, I’ve got my four cans, I’ve got my chicken. My chicken is important because he must be starving.”

“I thought that I could take Raoul Moat fishing because he was near a river,” he told The Mirror in 2020.

Gazza was, of course, sent away by the police. He went home and passed out, waking up to hundreds of texts.

“You know in the morning when you panic the first thing you do is look at your mobile,” he recalled.

“I’ve got 250 missed calls, I was like — what have I done? I’ve got a chicken by my side, fishing rods, a Barbour, I’m like f*** me I must have done something.

“I turn on Sky News — Paul Gascoigne was there last night.”
