RISING star Reggie Yates has landed another BBC singing show

– this one featuring three Tourette’s Syndrome sufferers. DJ Reggie, who fronts BBC One talent show The Voice alongside Holly Willoughby later this month, will also host Tourette’s Superstar on BBC Three. It’s a follow-up to last year’s hit documentary I Swear I Can Sing, which followed the story of Tourette’s sufferer Ruth Ojadi, 25. The new three-part show by Leopard Films sees Ruth joined by fellow sufferers Steve Ley, 25, and Greg Storey, 18. A source told TV Biz: “Most documentaries about Tourette’s just focus on the swearing but this one looks at the whole spectrum and reveals the people behind the syndrome. Filming has been emotional, uplifting and fun.” Set to air in the next few months, the first two shows follow the group as they meet and train together to prepare for their first live show, which will be seen in the final instalment of the series. Ruth, from London, has late-onset Tourette’s. It began when she was 16, with facial twitching and blinking. She also suffers from motor and vocal tics including swearing. Steve, from Alverdiscott, Devon, has symptoms which include hitting himself, spitting and swearing — but they disappear when he performs. Greg, from West Pickering, North Yorks, has tics which sometimes put him in danger, such as nearly throwing himself out of windows or moving cars. But his Tourette’s has improved, and he thinks drumming has helped.
