"I'm still trying to find answers on why I've got all these problems," he says. "I've organised several music events for Scope in the past but now I'm too ill to do a lot.

"I've recently married and my wife has become my new life-line in hope of finding answers!"

They once sang a song about Smelly Pirates with Vic Reeves for an Aardman Animation film, which also starred Catherine Tate, David Walliams and Miranda Hart.
