Capaldi shared the news during an Instagram Live, explaining that the condition is something he deals with “all the time.”
“The worst thing about it is when I’m excited I get it, when I’m stressed I get it, when I’m happy I get it. It happens all the time,” he said. “Some days it’s more painful than others and some days it’s less painful. It looks a lot worse than it is. Sometimes it’s quite uncomfortable … but it comes and goes.”
He said that after noticing he was twitching in an interview from 2018, his diagnosis “makes so much sense.”
“I do the shoulder twitch quite a lot. And you see underneath every TikTok and stuff, people are like, ‘Why is he twitching?’, which is fine. Curiosity is fine. I get it,” Capaldi said.
He continued: “It’s a new thing, I haven’t really learned much about it — I’m learning. I’ve got Botox on my shoulder to stop it moving. It worked for a bit.”
Earlier this year, Billie Eilish revealed she also has Tourette’s, telling David Letterman that the condition can be “exhausting”.
