Not only does Regan Gascoigne have a famous parent — his mother is a celebrity too.
The Dancing on Ice star is known for being the son of former Tottenham Hotspur and England midfielder Paul Gascoigne.
And his mother is TV personality Sheryl Gascoigne, who had a tumultuous marriage to Paul that ended in divorce in August 1998 after just two years.
Sheryl and Paul’s high-profile relationship began after they met in 1990, and they married six years later, shortly after Regan was born in 1996.
The footballer adopted Sheryl’s two children from her first marriage to Colin Kyle named Mason and Bianca, who then took Gazza’s last name.
Sheryl was a panelist on Loose Women and appeared in a number of TV documentaries before diving into the I’m A Celebrity jungle in 2010.

After initially turning down an offer to appear on the show, Sheryl was convinced to go to Australia when Gail Porter was forced to drop out.
Regan’s father Paul has thanked his ex for keeping her son on the right track throughout his childhood.
“He has a strong mother, she’s strong because obviously she’s been with me,” Paul told The Mirror in January.
And when it comes to Regan following in his father’s messy footsteps, Paul has no worries, saying, “He’s got a good head on his shoulders. He won’t be like me.”
During his time with Dancing on Ice, Regan was cheered on in the studio by his father, mother and sister Bianca.
After Regan made it safely through Movie Week, Bianca accepted Instagram to say, “That was great!
“We knew he could do it, it was just a matter of whether people would get behind him.
“Obviously he doesn’t have the following. So thank you to whoever voted for our little boy. Well, it’s mom’s little boy, but he’s my brother, thanks a lot. It means the world.”
Regan has topped the leaderboards almost every week during his time on Dancing on Ice, but it hasn’t been easy getting there.
The dancer, who is currently the favorite to win the series, admitted he was battered and injured after a bad accident on the ice.
Speaking to Lorraine Kelly last month, Regan confessed he found this week’s routine quite difficult following an accident that saw him fly backwards.
He said, “A tiny little movement can throw you. It sounds so stupid because it’s so slippery, but it’s so slippery to the point where you think you have no control, but you really don’t.
“Even if you think you know what you’re doing and you have the routine in your head … like the other day, while we were just out on the practice ground, I flew and literally landed on my back on something I had like that.” simply done – it just happens.”
*Dancing on Ice airs tonight at 6pm on ITV
