The 61-year-old said: "Hello everybody, this is me, Paddy. I want to say thank you to every one of you for praying for me. I give thanks and prayers to everyone. I'm a bit on the weak side and all that, but I'm alive."

He went on: "So listen, I want to say to everyone this is far from a joke, it's far from a wise crack. Be careful, keep your distance. I know it's easy saying that."

He told people they should 'think of the other people', adding: "To everyone and anyone, be lucky, be safe and God bless you all. Number one - look after yourself because no one will look after you. Look after yourself, yeah. Take care."
