Chaser Paul Sinha has Parkinson's
#1
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-48640653

Paul Sinha, one of the professional quizzers on ITV's The Chase, has revealed he has Parkinson's disease.

"I will fight this with every breath I have," tweeted the 49-year-old comic, going on to share further details of his diagnosis in a blog post.

Sinha, a former GP, said he was told he had Parkinson's - a degenerative brain condition - last month.

He said it had been "a really, really tough two weeks" but said he did not "consider himself unlucky".

"Whatever the next stage of my life holds for me, many others have it far worse," he continued.



Wow, this is very sad to hear :'( .

I do hope that, for the foreseeable future, at least, he's still able to participate on The Chase, perform in stand-up comedy, and do the other things he loves.
