Shaun Ryder swears live on GB News as he opens up on ADHD diagnosis aged 57

Happy Mondays star Shaun Ryder dropped the F-bomb live on air during a GB News interview with Neil Oliver.

Shaun, 58, was making an impassioned speech about how he struggled at school due to his ADHD, which he was only diagnosed with last year.

Host Neil said: “I’ve got a good one for you from Paul, Paul was diagnosed dyspraxic in 2017 at the age of 47 and he now has a BSC in psychology research and Paul asks ‘Did your school years ever leave feeling accepted in society?’”

Without hesitation Shaun responded: “F***ing absolutely, like I said I didn’t know the alphabet until I was about 28!”

He previously told the PA news agency: “The problem stems from the ADHD, the nutty behaviour – you have got all this energy going and you can’t focus on anything.

“You want to be a bit of a superhero at school so you start getting into crime and robbing a bit of money, and the girls love you.

“Attention-seeking stuff like that because that’s the only thing you could do really that I enjoyed – getting into trouble.”
