Danny Dyer has revealed he could ‘taste Paul Gascoigne’s farts’ while filming a wild new TV show, which launches next month.
Dyer is hosting a brand new Channel 4 reality series called Scared of the Dark, which follows a group of celebs as they live in The Bunker – a purpose-built living space designed to block out any light and rigged with 50 infrared cameras – for five days.
Over successive nights, we will see as they get to grips with literally living in the dark, with Channel 4 explaining: “To prove their mettle, each of the celebrities will take on a series of challenges designed to test either their primal fear of total darkness or their ability to function in the pitch black.
“Those that fail at their challenges will have to take on herculean tasks to save their place on the show.
“Each celebrity will be motivated to conquer their fears because at the end only one will step out into the light as series winner.”
To leave The Bunker, the celebrities must shout ‘I’m scared of the dark’ before they are escorted out and into the light.
Celebs taking on the challenge include retired pro-boxer Nicola Adams, reality star Chloe Burrows, professional boxer Chris Eubank, former professional footballer Paul Gascoigne, singer Max George, comedian Chris McCausland, TV personality Scarlett Moffatt and actor Donna Preston.
As well as having to contend with the bizarre experience of living in a pitch-black space, the contestants had another assault on the senses to face: Gazza’s farts.
Dyer told The Sun: “He’s got a rotten a**e, Paul.
“They all began to get immune to it, but I could f**king taste it.
“It did smell in there, I’m not going to lie. Because it’s an enclosed space … you know what I mean?”
He added: “I think he put a sandwich in someone’s bed – a nice little sandwich. They’re rolling around at night with a salmon or whatever the f**k it was.”
Dyer previously teased the new series, saying viewers are going to ‘love it’.
“This is possibly one of the most bizarre things I’ve ever done in my career, and I have done a lot of mad things.
“Throw in a bunch of celebs and make them do things with the lights off – it’s proper good telly.
“You’re gonna laugh, you’re gonna laugh some more and I promise you’re gonna love it.”
Scared of the Dark premieres on Channel 4 next month.
