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.

Autism is a condition that means your brain works in a different way from other people, and can impact how you interact with the world, and the couple will explore their families experiences in a new documentary.

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

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. 

It comes after Christine revealed in her autobiography, Christine McGuinness: A Beautiful Nightmare, that she had been diagnosed with autism. 

In an extract seen by The Mirror, Christine wrote: ‘I have been confirmed as autistic. It’s strange, but I’ve noticed there are little hints throughout my life that I’m autistic and more like my children than I ever could have imagined.

‘My issues with food, my social ­struggles, how hard I find it to make friends and stay focused, and my indecisiveness. The way I float through life reminds me of how my eldest daughter Penelope is.’ 

The model explained that she was diagnosed in August after she and Paddy, 48, were invited to meet Sir Simon Baron-Cohen who is the director of Cambridge University’s Autism Research Centre.   

The couple both filled out an AQ Questionnaire which is designed to measure the expression of Autism-Spectrum traits in a person. And while an average neurotypical person would score about 15, which Paddy did, hers was 36.
