Singer Capaldi discloses Tourette’s diagnosis


Lewis Capaldi has revealed he has Tourette’s syndrome and has received Botox treatment in his shoulder to help control his tics.

The 25-year-old Scottish singer opened up about his diagnosis during an Instagram Live video, explaining he is still learning about the condition, which causes a person to make involuntar­y sounds and movements.

Capaldi admitted he was relieved to discover he has the condition as he originally feared he might have some “horrible” degenerati­ve disease.

He explained that owing to his twitches people mistakenly think he takes drugs before concerts, but he said that is “never going to happen”.
