To me it looks like the part of the  gate that screws into the machines blue plastic hole has broken , leaving that bit inside the rim  ... you need to somehow remove that   , and buy a replacement fitting  .   
Like the ones in the link  ...

In the mean time ... a rubber or cork bung or something might keep you going

Happened to me on my pro when it slid out the back of the van. The one on mine was threaded and had a silicone sealant around it. A bit of faffing about and make shift tooling and you should be able to unscrew the remaining part and refit a new one
