SAVIOUR SHERYL; EXCLUSIVE Gazza's ex-wife rushes to help him beat crisis.
PAUL Gascoigne's ex-wife Sheryl was at his side yesterday - helping him begin the long battle to overcome his booze-fuelled mental health problems.
Sheryl, 43, rushed from her home to be with Gazza after he was sectioned under the Mental Health Act for his own safety. And yesterday the gaunt star walked arm-in-arm in the gardens of the Priory with the woman he drunkenly battered during their short and troubled marriage.
Gazza, 42, cracked a rare smile as they strolled in South-West London. And when a wellwisher asked how he was feeling, the ex-Spurs and England ace said: "I'm OK, thanks."
A friend said Sheryl had hurried to give Gazza her support after he pleaded for help.
The friend added: "Despite the divorce, Sheryl is still really important to him. She's one of the few people who could save him."
