BEN Shephard has told of Soccer Saturday legend Chris Kamara's brave health battle as his gruelling treatments were revealed.

The Good Morning Britain host, 47, updated fans on the TV star's condition as he fights Apraxia of Speech. Kammy, 64, opened up about his secret struggle after fans spotted him slurring his words.

Earlier this month he shared an image of himself in an oxygen chamber to aid his recovery. Ben told GMB viewers today: "He's doing really, really well. "Since he came on the show to talk about his apraxia - motor control issues - he's been going tons of tons of work getting lots of treatment. "It's been great to work together with Kammy lately and hear all about his speech therapy. "He wears a bracelet around his ankle which he calls his ASBO.

It pumps electric currents into his system... to re-stimulate the brain. " Apraxia of speech is a condition which makes talking difficult, with sufferers knowing what they'd like to say, but having trouble communicating their words.
