Gascoigne admits ‘My teeth are not my own’

Paul Gascoigne has revealed that, during the depths of his cocaine and Special Brew addiction, he had some of his natural teeth removed and replaced with carved Scrabble pieces.

“As you can now see I have a beautiful, full mouth of teeth. What you can’t see is that, behind each tooth, is a Scrabble letter that spells out the words “The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog”. That means the entire alphabet is now in my mouth and I also have a fantastic set of choppers for which to eat my tea with”.
