Synopsis : In this candid autobiography, Biggins tells the full story of his colourful, packed life. For the first time, he speaks about his Lancashire roots and how, as a child, he battled serious illness and nursed an ambition to be a vicar. He tells of how he dreamed of breaking away and finding a different kind of life for himself, a dream which began to be realised when, after winning his first role in a panto at his local theatre, he headed to London and the Old Vic. Thanks to television roles as diverse as Poldark and Rentaghost, Biggins became one of the best-known faces in television and on the stage. Yet the path to fame and fortune wasn't always easy. Although he knew he was gay, Christopher covered up his true sexuality, fearing it would affect his blossoming acting career.He even got married 'because it was the done thing.' He also had his fair share of adversity to overcome, such as his brushes with the law and his downward spiral into debt. But overcome them he did and fortune shone on Biggins when a contestant dropped out of hit TV show, "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!" and he stepped into the breach. His genuine personality, his appetite for fun and the gusto with which he approached the dreaded Bushtucker trials all endeared him to his fellow contestants and the public, who wasted no time in voting him winner of the show. Like it's author this book is candid and hilarious. It is a rip-roaring read, bursting with showbiz anecdotes, celebrity gossip and tales of a life lived to the full. After all, nobody knows showbusiness like Christopher Biggins...
A propos de l'auteur: Christopher Biggins is a veteran actor.
