"I'm worse than a cat. A cat's got seven lives, I've got 100 lives."

He then added: "Catch you all later. Be lucky."

Last month the star was rushed to hospital, and explained he thought he was going to die.

While doctors and nurses were doing everything in their power to save Paddy from the deadly bug, the former Celebrity Big Brother thought he was "a goner."

The 61 year old explained that the team of medical workers predicted a 50 per cent survival rate for his dire condition, but encouraged him to keep fighting as they said, "you can beat this Paddy".

Speaking about his horrific experience, he said: "I felt like I was paralysed in my body because I couldn’t do anything," before explaining how he thought he would die there.

He continued: "I couldn’t raise my hand, my head or even speak. I had no strength. The doctors were putting all these drips in me and I thought ‘this is it’.

“They gave me some drugs and said if they didn’t work I’d have to go on a ventilator and that I had a 50/50 chance of survival but they told me they thought I could beat it," he added.
