Steph McGovern speaks out as she offers support to Chris Kamara amid health scare

Steph McGovern, 38, took to Twitter and issued a heartfelt message to Chris Kamara, 63, after he opened up about his health. Speaking on Steph’s Packed Lunch today, the football pundit revealed that after undergoing a brain scan and a blood test, he was told he has an underactive thyroid.

It comes after Chris explained that he had experienced “brain fog” during his appearance on The One Show.

The ex-professional footballer explained that his mind went blank when he couldn’t remember any information about his album during the interview at the time when he was questioned by hosts Alex Jones and Michael Ball.

The Channel 4 presenter has since taken to the micro-blogging site and expressed her delight that Chris is “getting help” following his diagnosis.

In view of her 411,000 followers, Steph retweeted a clip from her show with the pundit speaking about his health.

Chris addressed his health concerns on Steph’s Packed Lunch, as he talked about his diagnosis.

After growing fears, he underwent a scan, which concluded there was “no loss of brain mass and very few lesions”.

He later took a blood test which determined the cause.

Chris explained: “What I’m suffering with is a swollen tongue, which causes you to slur your words.

“It slows down, not your thoughts, your thoughts are there but transferring those thoughts to the mouth, to talk coherently.”

He added his other symptoms include feeling cold, weakness in muscles and fatigue.

The TV personality is currently taking medication for his condition and is pleased he is returning to his normal self.

Steph’s Packed Lunch airs weekdays from 12.30pm on Channel 4.
