Italian actor Brando Giorgi was seen with an arm around Paul, nuzzling into him fondly.

Paul, however, looked on the brink of tears.

He and the rest of the cast – which features big Italian names such as Gilles Rocca and Massimiliano Rosolino – appeared to win a treat, as they were seen tucking ravenously into pizza.

Gazza was also using a burnt piece of wood to light a cigarette.

Paul had to spend a week in hospital after sustaining a shoulder injury during an endurance game on the reality show.

On his return, he looked thrilled to be back in the forest to continue filming the series.

But the harsh reality of living off the land soon crashed back around him as he was seen eyeing up a questionable mattress, before crashing out on the floor.

Sleeping somewhat awkwardly with his arm wrapped up, Paul tried to get some rest.

The Mirror had revealed that Paul would be sleeping in an actual bed instead of the sandy ground like his campmates – but this seemed not to be the case on Sunday.

He was later seen spitting something into a bucket as he chatted to co-star Awed – Simone Paciello.

A day prior, he couldn’t contain his emotion as he burst into tears upon his return on Thursday’s episode and said that he missed the other contestants ‘more than anything else in the world.’

Doctors have instructed Gazza to follow specific rules in order to support his recovery. 

Honouring his comeback, the contestants congregated at the main camping area on Day 19 of the show to chat with the football ace. 

The sports icon, who famously cried after England lost to West Germany during the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Turin, was seen adjusting his arm brace on the island near Hondura.

According to The Sun, producers of the series met recently to discuss whether Paul was fit enough to continue on with the show.

He was flown to hospital for emergency check-ups after sustaining his injury, forcing him to temporarily pull out of filming.

A friend of Paul’s told the publication: ‘He’s dislocated his shoulder. It’s such a shame as he was doing so well.

‘He’s resting while the medical team check him out. The producers are very concerned. He may be pulled out. There are insurance issues as well for them to consider.’
