Much-loved Chaser Paul "The Sinnerman" Sinha is turning 50 today!
And what better way to celebrate his big milestone, than with some of his funniest moments on The Chase.
It has been a tough year for Sinha, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease last year.
Taking to Twitter ahead of his special day, he reflected on his 49th year by writing a poem:
In two days time it will be my 50th birthday. I'll be off social media to focus on having a lovely day. Because.........
It’s been the strangest of my years, juggling illness and careers
But it hasn’t been my instinct to start moping
It is both the fit and sickly, who hide the fact they’re paddling quickly
Mutual support is how we find a way of coping.
When I think of how I feel, it’s a slightly strange reveal
That a year on, the fight has barely just begun
If I’m being quite pragmatic, one day my movements will be static
Till that occurs there’s no excuse to not have fun.
It’s fifty years since I was born, and one thing I share with Shane Warne
Is that a century will prove sadly out of reach
I’ve friends and family on Zoom, and Oliver to ease the gloom.
Embrace life. Now I have nothing more to preach.
Parkinson’s is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system, which usually begins with motor symptoms, including shaking and difficulty walking.
Happy birthday Paul!
