But after they bosses decided they didn’t want it, Paddy was shocked when ITV called and offered him the gig. Making his debut as Bear Grylls wannabe Dougie Ryan, Paddy joined the show for a few episodes back in 2015 and although he went down a storm with fans, the star has since confirmed he won’t be returning to the much-loved soap.
Take Me Out presenter Paddy Mc Guinness has said Saturday’s episode was a tribute to one of its contestants, who has since died.
“He thinks calling himself ‘the Chaz Man’ is really cool. Friends took to social media to pay their own tribute.
Paddy was performing with Ben, a holiday park entertainer from Weymouth, who was performing Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball.
