Gogglebox favourites Steph and Dom Parker have opened up about their disabled son.
Max, now 15, was diagnosed with epilepsy at 4 years old and can have 150 seizures a month. He also has autism and spends term time at a special residential school.
Steph spoke to The Times Magazine saying how she took Max to the doctors when he was younger after she noticed his ”jerky movements”.
“We took a video of him and showed it to the GP, who immediately referred us to the paediatric consultant at the local hospital who said, ‘I think we have a problem and I need you to come in first thing Monday morning. Bring a bag’,” she recalled.
Max does not appear on the successful Channel 4 show or his sister Honor.
