The hunt Star Paul Sinha has told fans to appreciate life as he shared the update on his Parkinson’s disease.
In May 2019, the comedian and quizzer was diagnosed with the degenerative neurological disorder, two years after experiencing an early symptom in a “sudden onset, frozen right shoulder.”
Appears on Permissive women On Friday (April 15) for Parkinson’s Awareness Week, Sinha said he was “combat fit.”
“To be perfectly honest, Covid has been more of a part of my life than Parkinson’s because Parkinson’s is a pretty slow process compared to a global pandemic,” he said.
“So I’ve had more worries with Covid than with Parkinson’s because I’m certainly not quite where I was two years ago but I’m still fighting fit.”
Asked for advice for anyone showing symptoms of the condition, Sinha said: “The NHS is still one of the greatest things we have and it’s there for you and you’ve paid your taxes to take advantage of it… Go See your GP if you are concerned about your health and seek help. Don’t sit on the problem like I did for a few months.”
He then urged viewers to “appreciate life.”
Parkinson’s is caused by a lack of dopamine in the brain, with symptoms such as involuntary tremors, slower movements and stiffness in the muscles.
Last year, Sinha was forced to quit the ITV spin-off quiz series Defeat the hunters because of the condition.
