Earlier this week, Lewis said the diagnosis was recent and explained he was learning new ways to cope with it “all the time”.

The musician said he wanted people to know about his condition so his fans wouldn’t think his contractions were due to cocaine use.

In previous clips shared to his Instagram, Lewis’ shoulder twitch is evident as he announces the release of his new single, Forget Me, on stage at London’s O2.

While speaking onstage at the Brit Awards in 2020, Lewis’s involuntary contractions could also be seen during her Song of the Year acceptance speech.

The Hold Me While You Wait hitmaker has revealed he was being treated with Botox injections to freeze his muscles in an attempt to control the tics.

Speaking to his fan on Instagram Live, he said: “I was diagnosed with Tourette’s. I wanted to talk about it because I didn’t want people to think I was on cocaine or something.

“My shoulder twitches when I’m excited, happy, nervous or stressed. It’s something I live with. It’s not as bad as it sounds.

He also opened up about the condition to his fans during an Instagram Live session, explaining that it can be “painful” and “uncomfortable” at times.

Lewis said: “It’s a new thing. I didn’t really learn much about it. I have Botox in my shoulder to keep it from moving, but I’m constantly learning new ways to cope.

WHAT IS TOURETTE’S SYNDROME?

Tourette’s syndrome is a neurological condition characterized by a combination of noises and involuntary movements called tics.

It usually begins during childhood and continues into adulthood. Tics can be vocal or physical.

In many cases, Tourette’s Syndrome runs in families and is often associated with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Tourette syndrome is named after the French physician, Georges Gilles de la Tourette, who first described the syndrome and its symptoms in the 19th century.

There is no cure for Tourette’s syndrome, but treatment can help control symptoms.

“Some days it’s more painful than others, sometimes it’s quite uncomfortable, but I guess that’s it.

“When they said to me, ‘We think you have Tourette’, I was like, ‘You know what, that makes so much sense’.

“When I look back on my 2018 interviews, I can see that I do.”

Keeping a positive attitude, the Glasgowian added: “It comes and goes. Sometimes I can go months without doing it. I thought I had a horrible degenerative disease, so I’ll take Tourette.

Lewis’ revelation comes after he announced he would finally be releasing a brand new single, while admitting he was “nervous” to share the song.

During his second sold-out show at London’s O2, the singer debuted his new single Forget Me, which will be released on September 9.

Lewis played a clip of his soon-to-be-released Arena single live on TikTok to more than 57,000 fans.

The new song comes three years after the release of Lewis’ debut album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, which spent 10 weeks atop the UK charts.

Last year, the Scottish entertainer postponed all of his live shows to focus on recording a follow-up.

At the rescheduled gig, Lewis announced, “I said at the start of the show that it’s been a while since I’ve released new music, a very long time, three years actually, but luckily on September 9th it exchange.”

‘Next week I’m releasing my first single from this upcoming album. It’s called Forget Me, so that’s good news. On top of that, I’m going to play this song for everyone here tonight.

“I’m showing my song to 20,000 people for the first time. I’m very nervous. Nobody heard this music but all of you here tonight.

The NTAs will be broadcast live on ITV and ITV Hub from 8 p.m. on September 15.
