Billy Connolly can no longer sleep in the same bed as wife Pamela Stephenson because Parkinson’s disease causes him disturbed nights.

“I sleep like a wild animal,” the comedian said. “Laughing and singing or having fights. Pamela has to sleep in another bed.”

Admitting he is concerned he has “become a pain in the arse”, he credited his wife of 30 years for plumping his pillows for him every night.
