BRAVE Chris Kamara is back on the box with ITV’s Ninja Warrior despite his speech apraxia diagnosis.
His new doctor believes there could be a cure for the condition, which causes problems when speaking.
Kammy said: “I’ve just been introduced to the best neurologist in America and he said because I have good days, there’s no reason why I can’t be cured.
“I’ve sent off a load of blood tests and everything to America and I’m just waiting on the results.”
Chris, who has also continued to present Channel 5’s Cash In the Attic, tried an array of treatments in the UK.
These included having microcurrents through his brain, using an oxygen tent, taking vitamins, undergoing hypnotherapy and seeing a speech and anxiety therapist.

JAMES: TV HITS FILM
OSCAR-winning director James Cameron reckons too many films end up on TV.
The rise of streaming platforms such as Disney+ and Netflix means some blockbusters are heading straight to living rooms instead of cinemas.

The Titanic director said: “We’ve got a turn of the world towards easy access in the home.
“That has a lot to do with the rise of streaming in general, and also the pandemic, where we literally had to risk our lives to go to the movie theatre.
“It’s slowly building back.”
James, whose 2009 film Avatar is being re-released in cinemas, added: “Young film fans never had the opportunity to see it in a movie theatre.
“Even though they think they may have seen the film, they haven’t really seen it.”
CAROLINE CHARITIES CASH AXE
THE remaining pot of cash left by tragic Love Island presenter Caroline Flack has been seized by the Treasury.
A firm set up by the late TV host to handle her fees has been struck from the Government’s register after it failed to file annual accounts.

Records show that her mum Christine had twice managed to delay compulsory strike-off action in the hope she could use the money – around £800,000 – for good causes.
But all cash and assets have now been transferred to the Crown, meaning Christine will have to fight to restore the firm to reclaim the money.
Caroline, who won Strictly in 2014, was 40 when she took her own life in 2020.
It is estimated she earned £4million during her career. Her total estate of £2million was reduced after debts and death duties were covered as she did not leave a will.
At the time, her mum pledged: “We will use the money wisely to help good causes that Caroline was passionate about.”
Here’s hoping she will eventually be able to do that.
