What is apraxia and how does it affect Kammy’s TV work?

Apraxia is a neurological disorder that affects a person’s ability to perform learned movements on command, despite understanding the command and being willing to perform the movement.

After struggling with the condition, Kammy posted a message after an episode of Football on Saturday, hoping to give his viewers an explanation for his slightly slurred and stuttering speech.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Kammy said: “My apraxia, when it’s bad, stops those signals from that brain going to that mouth. It slows it down, sometimes it also blurs the words. Is he drunk, what’s wrong with him?’

“When I posted the message after football Saturday I never expected that response in a million years but everyone was so brilliant so kind. People I haven’t spoken to in 30 or 40 years have come forward to wish me well.”
