The 62-year-old said he has suffered damage as a result of his struggle with the deadly virus.

Coughing and wheezing, the Celebrity Big Brother winner explained in a video posted to Facebook: "I'll be out in the morning. Just be careful everyone.

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

Breathing in oxygen from a machine, he added: "Catch you all later. Be lucky."

He posted the video of him struggling to breathe, along with the caption: "Thought all was fine but here I am back in the Hospital. CRAZY."

Well-wishers have flooded his comments with prayers and get well soon messages.

And some have even urged him to stop speaking to update his fans – and to instead focus on his breathing.

One person wrote: "Stop talking Paddy boy just concentrate on breathing rest up get better xx"

Another wrote: "Get well soon paddy, prayers that you make a full speedy recovery."


Just last month, the My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding legend returned home from hospital after a traumatic battle with coronavirus.

He had developing pneumonia while battling the virus, and found himself "hours from death."

His wife Roseanne was left with no choice but to call for help as his symptoms got worse – and he was taken into hospital.

The former bare-knuckle boxer likened the medical team looking after him to soldiers at war as he battled the deadly virus.

He said at the time: "I've never seen nothing like them. They are the true warriors of God.

"True angels. There are no words for them. They're a different level. They're the greatest people on the planet. Without them, life wouldn't exist."

Doctors and nurses battled to save his life, putting his chances of survival at 50/50.

The star even admitted the worst has crossed his mind during his battle as he thought he "was a goner" and that his "number was up".

Filming from a hospital bed, he warned fans coronavirus is "not a joke" as he was placed on oxygen to help him breathe.

It comes after Paddy underwent a five-hour operation in March 2019 to treat his prostate cancer.
