Billy Connolly says he’s “near the end” and that his life is “slipping away”


Scottish comedian Billy Connolly has admitted he is “near the end” and that his life is “slipping away”, as he spoke about his fight with Parkinson’s disease.

Speaking during the upcoming second part of his BBC documentary series Made In Scotland, Connolly spoke frankly about his battle with the illness and revealed that he is not scared of death.

“My life, it’s slipping away and I can feel it and I should. I’m 75, I’m near the end. I’m a damn sight nearer the end than I am the beginning. But it doesn’t frighten me, it’s an adventure and it is quite interesting to see myself slipping away,” he said.
