Superveter Noel Fitzpatrick makes a painful admission about his love life

Superveter Noel Fitzpatrick opened up to Ryan Tubridy about his “awkward” love life.

The veterinarian, TV star and author is best known for his work on The Supervet, which aired on Channel 4 from 2014 to 2019.

Noel, from Co Laois, was the latest star to discuss his love of books on former Late Late Show presenter Ryan’s The Bookshelf podcast.

Opening up about his love life, Noel said: “I don’t care about professor this or professor that, I want someone who I can love and who will accept me in stinky socks when I come back from my run.” I don’t mind who I am.

– Can you talk to women as eloquently as you can to people like me? Is this changing? he asked Ryan.

Joking that he was on a “date with Ryan Tubridy” today, Noel told Ryan that he sometimes “falls into a pit of self-hatred” and “always feels deeply inadequate.”

“In surgery, I was able to sublimate it with skill and knowledge. In real life, I’m still a 10-year-old who has never seen a girl.

“I’m still the person who feels really awkward about the whole, ‘Could you get to know me and still let me be me? If you were with me, could I make you the best you can be?” – he said.

After writing three best-selling volumes of memoirs, two children’s books and Kiera and Me, Noel does not rule out writing his own biography.

“I have written three biographies and I am considering this one. I hope the book will be called “Miracles, Music and Me.”

“I think if a publisher is interested in it, it will be about the lack of dividing lines between art and science and how music and medicine can take us to the next level, but no one has ever tried to make medicine sexy.

“Well, I bring it to you with joy and with the attitude of contributing generosity to miracles and music,” he said.
