He may not have found love on First Dates Ireland recently, but Paddy Smyth did win the hearts of the nation.
The 28-year-old trended on Twitter during, and after, the show and has since begun presenting a slot on TV3’s 6 o’clock show.
Paddy was already a star before all this though, having amassed a huge Snapchat following documenting his day-to-day life living with Cerebral Palsy with his now signature candour and humour.
On this podcast, Paddy told Róisín Ingle about his 'almost famous' moment, making it down to the last twenty for Big Brother during its heyday on Channel 4. He also spoke about dating with a disability, why it's important to highlight the fun aspects of being disabled, and why no gay teenager should ever come out to their parents the way he did.
