Paddy McGuinness
- Favourite Briton.

Born in Farnworth, Lancashire
Born on 14th of August 1973

Paddy McGuinness is a TV star with an interesting back-story – a martial arts champion who for a time (while he was already appearing on TV) managed a local leisure centre. After working in stand-up he became a recognizable face thanks to his appearances on Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights and Max and Paddy’s Road to Nowhere, and hasn’t look back since, which makes reversing difficult. Now McGuinness is a familiar panel show guest, hosts various TV programmes, and (one hopes) must have made a fortune from his Farnworth accent voiceovers for a variety of adverts.
