The Someone You Loved singer told the Sun: "I wanted to speak about it because I didn’t want people to think I was taking cocaine or something."

He said he had been experiencing twitches in his shoulder and confessed he feared a worse diagnosis. 

“My shoulder twitches when I am excited, happy, nervous, or stressed," Capaldi said. 

“I got Botox in my shoulder to stop it moving but I’m learning new ways to cope all the time.

“I thought I had some horrible degenerative disease, so I’ll take Tourette’s.

“It is something I am living with. It’s not as bad as it looks.”
