Paddy McGuinness: New show and two new babies this month

Paddy McGuinness has confessed he is worried he'll miss the arrival of his twins if his wife goes into labour while he's hosting new show Your Face Sounds Familiar.
The Take Me Out host and his model wife Christine Martin are set to become parents to twins at the end of this month and Christine, 24, is due to give birth around the same time that the new ITV celebrity singing show begins this weekend.
Paddy, 39, told The Sun: "My first reaction was when it is being done? My wife is going to have twins and they told me the show would start just around when she is due to give birth.
"Now I've said yes, I just hope my wife does not go into labour on Saturday!"
"The doctor who is looking after us has assured us it will be all right. I will be there at the birth - there is nothing surer of that."
The former Phoenix Nights star can't wait to become a dad.
He added: "It's the best thing that has ever happened to me. Christine and I are both excited. When kids come along, you start to think about things like mortgages and schooling and you have to work. But it's nice to be able to balance the two. I am so looking forward to it."
Paddy's Your Face Sounds Familiar co-host Alesha Dixon also announced her own pregnancy last week.
