Paul, who has a second career as a comedian, writes comedy material on the cruel condition.
The brain box on the ITV quiz says that this romance tactic "helps me not to plunge into self-pity."
The 49-year-old, nicknamed Sinerman, recently opened up about his diagnosis after a two-year battle with health issues.

"I also started writing routines for all this. It may be a little brutal, but my job as a comedian is to be funny and honest. I would like to be the unofficial mascot of my life. "
And he says in a new blog: "Posting to the community was a huge weight off my shoulders … the huge support from friends, strangers, the family was a big emotional boost.
"Happiness helps my health. For me, having a drink and dinner, the company of friends, family, and stranger engagement, and strive to be the best possible in my two favorite jobs. Comedy and quiz. "
