The Chase star Paul Sinha, 50, took to social media today to give fans an update. The comedian and quizzer, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2019, said he had put an alternative arrangement in place, now that he is a “poor typist”.

According to his most recent Twitter post, Paul has enlisted the assistance of his husband Oliver Levy to help him type.

“I might be a poor typist now, but luckily thanks to progress I can use an alternative that wasn’t even an option a few years ago.

“A husband,” he amusingly told his 180,400 followers.

Many took to the comments section of his post to share their thoughts.

“Husbands have their uses!” one social media user remarked.

“Yeah they come in handy for some things,” another added, sharing a similar sentiment.

“I hear the autocorrect function on those things is a nightmare,” a third joked.

A fourth follower said: “2021 is a year that has progressed us as humans and I’m sure the aforementioned husband is more than happy to be your typing assistant.“

Paul and Oliver tied the knot in December 2019.

They were married in front of 38 guests at a registry office, 11 months after getting engaged.

In a blog post about his big day, the chaser said he’d had the time of his life.

Following the ceremony, the newlyweds partied with 300 friends and family at their wedding reception.

The ITV star, who had received his Parkinson’s diagnosis only six months before the big day, said the wedding had been so eventful that it had taken his mind off his health worries.

“Best of all, when I woke up the next morning, I realised: ‘I hadn’t thought about my Parkinson’s once.’

“All I thought was how lucky I was to have lived a life where my friends and family are amazing.

“On to married life,” he wrote online.

Earlier in the week, Paul spoke about typing “erratically” while discussing Twitter etiquette.

“Everyone here is entitled to their own Twitter code of etiquette. Mine is……

“I have Parkinson’s. I’m tired, type erratically and I can’t respond to everyone. That doesn’t make me a bad person.

“I have no interest in discussing Chase repeats. You had your chance first time around,” he went on to light-heartedly add.
