Paddy McGuinness reveals he was once locked in a hotel room with a naked Peter Kay

Paddy McGuinness has recalled the moment close friend Peter Kay locked himself out of his hotel room while completely naked after a harmless prank went wrong. 

The legendary comedian was left red-faced after an attempt to humour McGuinness backfired while they were spending the night in adjoining rooms at London’s Soho Hotel. 

Documenting the incident in new autobiography My Lifey, the former Take Me Out star, 48, revealed how Kay brazenly walked into his room without any clothes on, only to be mortified when the door connecting their suites unexpectedly locked behind him.

He wrote: ‘It was all great fun until Peter swanned into my room starkers, only for the door to lock behind him.

‘The dressing gown was too small for him, there was no way it would close at the front. I’d have to call down to reception to send someone up to unlock the door.

‘I mean, how do you explain that one? “I’ve got one of the nation’s best-loved comedians in my room with his c*** out”‘.

He added: ‘The manager knew who we both were but to be fair just opened up the locked door and left. That was the good thing about the Soho Hotel, it was discreet.

‘If that’d been anywhere else we’d have probably ended up on the front page of the Daily Star.’ 

McGuinness became a household name after starring alongside childhood friend Kay in hit shows Phoenix Nights and Max and Paddy’s Road To Nowhere.
