The TV presenter revealed that he discovered the diagnosis after being arrested on suspicion of drink driving in March 2018.
“I’ve got ADHD. I don’t mind talking about that,” he said, adding: “I never knew that until afterwards. I was so thoroughly examined and diagnosed, I found stuff out about me I hadn’t addressed for years.”
He stated that his diagnosis “made sense” as it has "a lot of links to alcohol-dependency”.

Lately, I keep seeing this commercial on TV. An on-the-go mom keeps getting phone alerts — text messages and reminders about a meeting or something to buy at the grocery store. I don’t know if it’s advertising a car or a smart phone, because I always lose interest around when she gets a text message from her son, “Forgot my tuba.” In the next scene, she’s at the school handing him the instrument. Then they hug, smile at each other, and wave goodbye. It’s at this point that I change the channel.
