Nadia Sawalha's poor organisation skills could be a sign of ADHD

ADHD symptoms in adults include continually starting new tasks before finishing old ones, poor organisational skills, inability to focus or prioritise and continually losing or misplacing things.

Other celebrities who have been diagnosed with ADHD include Jamie Oliver, who has had the condition since childhood, and Ant Mcpartlin, who was diagnosed as an adult.

Chatting to The Sun in 2019, Ant revealed that he had been diagnosed with ADHD. He said: "I never knew that until afterwards. I was so thoroughly examined and diagnosed, I found stuff out about me I hadn’t addressed for years."
