The Take Me Out host has children with autism

Take Me Out host Paddy McGuinness has slammed the ‘ignorant tool’ who took him to task for using a disabled parking space on a trip out with his children.

Paddy and his wife Christine have six-year-old twins Leo and Penelope who have autism and a three-year-old daughter Felicity who they believe is also on the autistic spectrum.

The Bolton comic says he was dropping his kids off at a play centre and had the relevant disability badges on display when he was challenged by a stranger.

He tweeted: “Just had a deep breathe and walk away moment. Dropped my little ones off at a play centre.

“Parked in a disability space while they got out. Had all our relevant disability badges on display only for some b***end to come over and tell us that we don’t look disabled?”

He continued: “I took a deep breathe and sent my children in. Luckily they didn’t understand what was going on.

“Once they’d happily gone in I approached this ignorant tool.

“All I wanted to do was bounce him off every car but there would only be one loser in that, me! #ignorance”
