SIR Billy Connolly has revealed he doesn't plan to return to the stage as he continues to battle the various symptoms of Parkinson's disease. 

The 76-year-old Glaswegian comic said he is losing his hearing, starting to drool and is unsteady on his feet.

He revealed the news on Chris Evans Virgin Radio Breakfast Show yesterday.

Although he has no plans to return to live performances, he told DJ Chris, 53, that he refused to get down about health.

He said: "I've started to drool which is a new one on me.

"This disease, it gives you a new thing every now and again that you have to deal with, and drooling is my latest."

He added: "I walk unsteadily and my hearing is going and it's bizarre that bits of me are falling off - but it's interesting.

"I don't think the way I used to. I may perform at some point but I'm quite happy taking my medicine and getting along with it.

"I don't know if the performance bit has gone as I have to get into the performance mode to see that.

"I'd have to walk on to the stage and I've never done that.

"Steadily more symptoms come and it's incurable.

"It's not going to end. I had a Russian doctor in New York who said: 'You realise this is an incurable disease?'

"And I said, "Get a grip of yourself, stop calling in an incurable disease, say we have yet to find a cure. Give the guy a light in the tunnel. Incurable is such an awful thing to say to somebody."

The dad-of-five was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2013 while having treatment for prostate cancer.
