Following recent tweets, Christine Hamilton is longer an ambassador for MDUK and all links between her and the charity have now been severed.
A spokesperson said: “Christine Hamilton’s recent tweet clearly does not reflect or in any way represent the views of Muscular Dystrophy UK. We believe in a diverse and inclusive society, respect for all and we oppose all forms of prejudice and discrimination.”

About muscle-wasting conditions
- More than 70,000 children and adults in the UK have a muscle-wasting condition.
- Muscle-wasting conditions may be inherited or strike out of the blue. These conditions cause muscles to weaken and waste over time, leading to increasingly severe disability. Some affect the heart and muscles vital for breathing, cutting lives short.
