The TV star said he is ‘living the life he wants to live’ despite his diagnosis with Parkinson’s disease in May this year.
The Chase star Paul Sinha aka ‘The Sinnerman‘, has announced he married long-term partner Olly over the weekend. Speaking on his personal blog, the quiz-master described the wedding as the ‘greatest day’ of his life. The celebrations had lots of personal touches, including lyrics to the Pet Shop Boys hit Love Comes Quickly being used as the first reading. Comedian Paul then entertained his 75 guests with a self-written song and dance number at the reception.
“Halfway through the song, I was thinking, “I am having the f**king time of my life,” said Paul. “My clan were meeting his clan, and everything was wonderful in the world.” The party reached a jubilant end with Paul and his new husband Olly stood on chairs ‘destroying’ Carter USM’s cover of The Impossible Dream. “Best of all, when I woke up the next morning, I realised: I hadn’t thought about my Parkinson’s once,” Paul added.
He was diagnosed with the condition in May this year.
“We all have in life terrible misfortune, and terribly good fortune and you have got to embrace both. I don’t consider myself unlucky.” said Paul.
“My mental health has been through everything this year, and I’m not saying it’s easy but I don’t feel depressed. I feel energised. I’ve written a show and it took me six weeks to write. It’s never taken me such a short time to write a show. And it’s really good, it’s far more ambitious than any other full length show I’ve done. ”
“It’s born from a ferocity of spirit, I want to take chances.”!
