Paddy McGuinness and his wife Christine have three children, eight year-old twins Leo and Penelope, and five year-old Felicity, who have all been diagnosed with autism.

‘We’re still trying to work out what it all means for our family and our future,’ continued the presenter. 

While footage of him shedding a tear and being comforted by Christine played out, Paddy could be heard explaining: ‘Autism is a part of who they are now. Why would I want to take away part of my children?’

Paddy initially struggled with their children’s diagnosis, while Christine accepted it more quickly, throwing herself into supporting them, while Paddy focused on his work and providing for his family in the best way he knew.  

Having started from very different places, over the course of filming and learning more about autism, Paddy and Christine move closer together and come to a much stronger understanding about what autism means for their family.   

In the documentary Paddy also meets footballer Paul Scholes, who has a 16 year-old non-verbal autistic son.
