Comedian and former Great British Bake Off star Sue Perkins has opened up about her attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD diagnosis. UK’s National Health Service (NHS) has described ADHD as a condition which impacts the behaviour of people who tend to become restless and face issues while concentrating. People diagnosed with ADHD may also act impulsively.

The 53-year-old former Great British Bake Off host revealed that she had been diagnosed with ADHD on Twitter while responding to rock ban Gomez’s member Tom Gray. Taking to Twitter, the Gomez guitarist admitted that he was “creeping” towards his own ADHD diagnosis. In response, Perkins said on social media that she has “fully crept”.

I have fully crept. Once I had the diagnosis, suddenly everything made sense – to me and those who love me. Wishing you well on the journey, Tom x
