When was Paul Sinha diagnosed with Parkinson’s?

Paul revealed he had Parkinson’s in June 2019 after being diagnosed in May.

The quizzer shared the news in a blog post.

We’re all sort of concerned for Paul’s health for example.

At the time, he wrote: “On the evening of Thursday May 30th, an experienced consultant neurologist calmly informed me that I had Parkinson’s disease.

“With the diagnosis now confirmed, and a treatment plan in place, I now feel far more prepared for the new challenges ahead.

“I have an amazing family, no strangers to serious medical illness, I’m blessed to have a fiance who is there for me.”

Despite his illness, Paul has remained positive.

Last year, he joked that his Parkinson’s was getting in the way of him enjoying sex.

He tweeted: “Having Parkinson’s is like living in the UAE.

“The sheikhs control your life, gay sex is out of the question, and there are a hell of a lot of parking spots.”

Meanwhile, Paul was recently supported by his Beat the Chasers and The Chase co-star Mark Labbett – aka The Beast.
