Chris Kamara to front speech apraxia documentary

OHMYGOSSIP — Chris Kamara is to front a documentary about his speech apraxia diagnosis.
The 64-year-old star first revealed in March that he had developed the neurological condition, which has caused him to speak slower than he used to, and he has teamed up with ITV for the film.
He told the Daily Star newspaper’s Hot TV column: “I am doing a documentary for my condition.
“It is for ITV. We have been speaking to people with apraxia and dyspraxia. They are people who are worse off than me.
“It has been emotional, but I haven’t been nervous. Hopefully with this documentary we will open a few eyes.”
Chris is hoping his upcoming documentary will raise awareness of the issue.
He added: “I am hoping we can bring awareness to this issue. It’s something that people don’t know much about.
People who are suffering can’t get the proper help because it’s not available on the NHS. To get help you need to go private. So it’s really important to raise awareness about this.”
Last month, Chris admitted he “feels like a fraud” presenting live TV after his apraxia diagnosis.
The former footballer – who is affectionately known as Kammy – quit his role on Sky Sports’ ‘Soccer Saturday’ after 24 years in April, and while he has continued his television career by co-hosting ‘Ninja Warrior’, he feels he is not giving the “best” version of himself since being diagnosed.
He said: “I feel a fraud now in terms of broadcasting – I don’t bring to the table what I used to. I feel I’m doing these programmes and they’re not getting the best of me – they’re tolerating me, that’s how it feels. You take your old self for granted.”
