BIG Fat Gypsy Weddings star Paddy Doherty was rushed to hospital after suffering a heart attack.
The 62-year-old reality TV favourite updated his fans on his latest health battle in a video taken from his hospital bed.
In the clip, a breathless Paddy said he "looked and felt 100 times better" after a shave and brushing his teeth.
And he thanked the NHS for taking good care of him, adding: "Without them, we wouldn't survive."
The former bare knuckle boxer finished the video vowing to "be back stronger" before launching into an Arnold Schwarzenegger impression.
He added: "I wouldn't say I'm great, but I'm getting there."

Paddy later vowed to "stop drinking and messing about" after "doing things in life I shouldn't do".
And he encouraged viewers to "think positive" and talk about their problems.
