Paddy’s Boat Party gets underway on a yacht in Canary Wharf

Paddy and Max Rushden have been getting jiggy with it, oligarch-style, on a deluxe yacht in London's docklands...


As you may know, Paddy likes to live it up.

It’s always been a dream of mine to be a Russian oligarch, sailing around the world on a deluxe, richly appointed mega-yacht. So, ahead of the World Cup, I decided to finally make that dream a reality and invited some of my closest friends – and Max Rushden – to join me on my newly acquired dreamboat.

Thus was born Paddy’s Boat Party, a decadent and raucous celebration of football featuring the likes of Sven-Goran Eriksson, Tinchy Stryder and many more besides.

We’re broadcasting live from the boat on seven occasions throughout the World Cup, with our first episode having taken place the day before things got underway in Russia.

By all accounts, a wonderful time was had by all during that first recording.

The next episode is scheduled for Sunday 17th, with more coming on the 24th, 27th, July 1st, 8th and 15th. The shows can be watched live via our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, so make sure to tune in.

I mean, where else could you see Sven being serenaded by Bell and Spurling? Or Geoff Hurst having the absolute bantz with Tinchy Stryder?
