Ardal O’Hanlon faked paralysis to watch 1974 World Cup

OHMYGOSSIP — Ardal O’Hanlon pretended to be paralysed so he could watch the 1974 World Cup.
The ‘Father Ted’ star admitted he was so obsessed with the football tournament – which was staged in West Germany that summer – that he came up with an outrageous plan to miss piano lessons and catch the games.
As quoted by the Daily Star newspaper, he said: “I didn’t want to miss a single match. I knew every player and I just couldn’t wait for it.
“I wasn’t missing anything and I was fine being pampered and being carried up the stairs, I loved it.”
The ‘Death In Paradise’ actor revealed he “got better” after being given a ‘placebo’ by a doctor.
Meanwhile, the 56-year-old star – who is known for playing Father Dougal McGuire in classic sitcom ‘Father Ted’ – recently suggested comedy has “changed a lot” since he first started out, and people have to be “a lot more careful” nowadays.
He said: “It has [changed] a lot. You have to be more careful about what you say with social media.
“Any little faux pas or slip-up will be seized upon so you censor yourself a bit more. There are far more female comedians now, from more diverse backgrounds, more disabled comedians, so there’s great variety.
“And it’s kind of changed slightly from joke tellers to storytellers. People are telling their story, which is unique to them. Ultimately, the objective is the same, which is to make people laugh.”
And the funnyman noted the way Father Ted’s popularity “opened doors” for him in a way he never thought possible.
He explained: “It [changed my life] to some degree. I was getting on fine doing stand-up in London at the time and was really enjoying it.
“But ‘Father Ted’ takes you to another level, it opens doors for you in a way that I never imagined.”
