Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson has revealed that he has Alzheimer's disease.
He was diagnosed 18 months ago but chose the launch of an Alzheimer's Society walk to talk about his condition publicly for the first time. The 83-year-old lives in Henley-on-Thames and said that living with the condition had robbed him of his freedom and that not being able to drive any longer was the "bitterest blow of all".
Mr Anderson also created the marionette puppet series Joe 90 and Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons.
