Piers Morgan has apologised after Paul Gascoigne's house was burgled while he was in attendance of his Vinnie Jones Life Stories episode.

The England hero almost broke down live on Good Morning Britain as he revealed special family items from his father were robbed.

Morgan had shared a photo of Gascoigne in the Elstree Studios in Borehamwood, where Vinnie Jones' episode of Piers Morgan's Life Stories episode was being filmed, potentially alerting the robbers to his absence.

The 53-year-old returned to find expensive watches, rings and bracelets, as well as some defrosting fillet steaks, stolen.

"Not only did they take the jewellery and the rings, sentimental things, I thought I may as well get something out of the freezer to defrost for the evening and when they took my fillet steaks...that's incredible," Gazza opened up on GMB. "I tried to laugh about it but...

Paul Gascoigne choked up live on GMB.

"I kept on thinking I left my watch in my drawer, my bracelets and my other stuff, but it should be alright. Obviously when I get [sic] back and seen the window wide open, I thought I must have left it or the wind blew it open, obviously not.

"So I went straight for the drawer and when I saw the watch was gone I must have put it where the other watches are and when I saw the suitcase open I knew I had been robbed."

Of the things stolen, it wasn't just expensive items but possessions also worth a huge sentimental value to Gazza.

He added: "When I signed for Tottenham I treated myself to an expensive diamond watch and I gave it to my dad as a present, 'go you can have that', he was over the moon. He gave me one back that he had for a long time that he hadn't worn. When he passed away I'd given a lot stuff to the family to keep and remind me of my dad and there was certain stuff I kept.

"I was really close to my dad. For it to get stolen, I don't mind the other stuff, but the sentimental stuff meant a hell of a lot to us.

Piers Morgan has promised to send Gazza some fillet steaks.

"For whoever's got it, if they want to leave it in a bag somewhere, they don't have to own up to it, it's hearbreaking.

"When you see people getting robbed you never think about it happening to yourself. Now that I'm talking about it it's really hit me - stupid things that don't even mean anything to them. Which means a hell of a lot to me.

The football had some very dear family items stolen.

"I won a lot of things in my career, football, and I'd given them to the family. My first championship medal I'd given to my dad. I remember when I had it I said to my mum, 'give it to one of my nephews'. She said, 'no, look you've kept nothing yourself. Why don't you keep your first championship medal?'. I kept that and they've actually stolen that as well. That's heartbreaking."

Morgan described the actions of the robbers as "disgusting" and, as a small consolation, agreed to send Gascoigne a dozen fillet steaks.

"I'm very sorry, Paul, if that [the tweet] has inadvertently put you in this position," said Morgan. "I never thought about that for a moment - it was great to see you at the recording."
