'I'm living in the real world', says Paul Gascoigne

Help

Paul Gascoigne says he's happy in life at the moment and is living in the real world.

He told Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire that he's been sober for almost a year and has rung people up in recent months to apologise for his behaviour towards them.

Mr Gascoigne also added that he was drunk and ill when he went to help the gunman Raoul Moat last year.
