Paddy McGuinness to film reality show about his twins

Paddy McGuinness is set to film a new ITV2 reality show about his autistic five-year-old twins.

The 45-year-old comedian and television personality, along with his wife Christine, have already begun filming the new three-part fly-on-the-wall series for ITV2, which will focus on the lives of their young twins Leo and Penelope, who both suffer from autism.

The programme will reportedly see Paddy and Christine open up about the strain the diagnoses has put on their marriage, as well as hoping to raise awareness for the developmental disorder, which is characterised by troubles with social interaction and communication, as well as restricted and repetitive behaviour.

A source told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre TV column: "It's a huge thing for them to put their relationship in the spotlight - especially because of the recent marital troubles.

"But their desire to raise awareness of autism has overridden any concerns and this is the strongest sign yet they have managed to put things back on track.

"They want to show that while they lead a glamorous lifestyle, their family is at the heart of everything they do and this is a continuation to raise awareness of the challenges that can be faced when raising autistic children.

"At times they find things tough and they want to show they are just like any other parents and there are constant ups and downs."

Their new show comes after Christine - who has two-year-old Felicity with Paddy - revealed last month she was reduced to tears when a woman complained about the twins being "noisy" at a play centre.

She said: "She complained about the noises they were making. She said there must be something wrong with those children. It broke my heart.

"They were happy, they were squealing and laughing and being loud. My kids don't like noise, but they usually are the loudest in the room. But let them enjoy themselves."
