Flamingo Land Resort host up for an award

Flamingo Land Resort's Party in the Park host Ryan Swain has been nominated in two categories in the 2018 Yorkshire Choice Awards.

He is up for Yorkshire Media Personality Of The Year and also the Kate Granger Outstanding Achievement Award, which recognises people who have given significant and lasting contributions to others.

Ryan lives in Malton with his partner Natalia and identical twin girls Ivy and Isla. The 27-year-old, who has also presented shows on Minster FM, works to raise awareness of ADHD which affects behaviour.

It's something he has been coping with himself and the three main symptoms are inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity.

A lot of people think that only children get ADHD and then they grow out of it, sadly that's not true.

I have had it my whole life, and now have Adult ADHD a condition which is becoming more familar in society.

It's hard, but luckily for me I have a very supportive family

I wouldn't be the charismatic performer I am without it.

He says having ADHD is like having the mind of a Ferrari and the brakes of a Ford Escort.

Ryan has raised money to help charities by taking part in various events, including the Great North Run and skateboarding from Malton to Scarborough.
