Danny O'Donoghue has opened up about suffering from Wilson's Disease

Brave of him.

The Script's Danny O'Donoghue has opened up about how he was born with Wilson's disease and "lives every day like it’s my last".

He said there's a chance he "could die" if he doesn’t take tablets to curb the condition every single day.

In a candid chat on Paul McKenna's Positivity Podcast, the singer revealed:

"It's my journey — the things that have gotten me to where I am today is that I live every day like it's my last."

"I was born with a ­disease called Wilson's disease, which is a blood disorder. And the blood disorder is I can't ­metabolise ­copper, so it's poisoning me slowly, slowly, slowly."

"I take tablets every day, I take two tablets a day for life. But I'm reminded in very sharp focus about death — every day."

"That there's a possibility that if I don't take this I could die. So that to me makes me live every single day like it's my last."

"It isn't and they caught it at a very early age, but my sister suffers very bad, it has all the hallmarks of multiple sclerosis."
