Sir Billy Connolly has put himself forward to become a stem cell research “guinea pig” as part of efforts to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease.

 

The Glasgow-born comedian was diagnosed with the illness five years ago.

 

Now, in extracts from his new book, he says he has been in touch with scientists at Harvard University in the United States, where stem cell scientists are at the forefront of global research into Parkinson’s.

 

The star poignantly reveals how the incurable illness dominates his life and has forced him to stop shows.
