In our lengthy W5 interview, Howie Mandel opens up about an episode in his youth that his therapists believe has been a very big trigger in his Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. It was something that happened to him that was so horrible, when he recounts it to us you can still see the terror in his eyes.
He has also been diagnosed as an adult with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, the reason he has always had enormous trouble sitting still for very long - and the reason his early stage performances were so manic.
