Paul Gascoigne's agent believes the former England midfielder's life is in danger after he started drinking again.

Gascoigne, 45, appeared to be unwell and trembling at a charity appearance in Northampton on Thursday.

His agent Terry Baker told BBC Radio Five: "He won't thank me for saying but he needs to immediately get help.

"Whatever's happened to him in the five or six weeks since I saw him before Christmas, he is not as well as he has been.

"He's been absolutely fine, he really has, and now he isn't. But I think he knows that.

"His life is always in danger because he is an alcoholic. Maybe no-one can save him - I don't know. I really don't know."
