Former Liverpool star Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock reveals difficult health after severe snob

Former Liverpool star Neil Ruddock has revealed that the presence of Harry’s Heroes in 2018 saved his life.

When Razor Ruddock got up to join last year’s ITV show, it was clear he was there to laugh.

Alongside artists such as Matt Le Tissier and Paul Merson, the goal was to lose the pounds ahead of a revenge clash against Germany.

But Ruddock struggled to get back in shape and health checks during the show showed that he could have died on the spot, according to the Mirror.

He has since mounted a pacemaker and threw three stones, but has revealed that he will never be fit enough to take part in another reality show such as Strictly Come Dancing, which he has previously been asked to present.

The former Liverpool man said to the Mirror: “I was asked to do rigorously, but with my knees and arthritis, I wouldn’t have lasted two minutes.

“And Dancing On Ice and The Jump – I couldn’t do such things.”

Two years ago Razor’s health problems came to light during the filming of Harry’s Heroes and added: “We all had a full stomach and I felt a little tired.

“They took me on a service – complete oil change – to London, and found that my cholesterol had increased.

“So I had to change my diet, take some pills and, you know, I just got on with life as usual.”
