Paul Gascoigne's theatrical debut has been a success.

The Mirror says former Rangers and Tottenham star Gazza looked back to his old self at the weekend as he made his theatrical debut.

The troubled footballer brought the house down when he appeared on stage with fellow ex-pro Jimmy Greaves.

They reminisced about old times and spoke candidly about their careers during the show in Bournemouth.

Gazza, 44, chose to perform in the seaside town because he was treated for his alcoholism in the area.
