'I felt really stupid': Coronation Street star opens up on suffering stroke at 35


    Now regaining 90% of his speech back, Chris confessed that the first few days out of the hospital he became irritable as he was stumbling over his words still.

    “I knew what I was trying to say but I couldn’t quite get my words and I would stop through sentences and it was quite tough.”

    Doctor Ellie appeared on the show to tell the This Morning hosts that having a stroke at an age similar to Chris’s is very uncommon.

    She added it would only really happen if somebody has a health problem but the classic sign of a stroke is speech problems.

    The doctor shared that other signs to be aware of is the drooping of the face or feeling a sudden sense of weakness in an arm.

    If people spot those signs she then urges them to call 111 or 999 as Chris had done in his situation.
