Publisher's Summary

Here is a revealing and touching memoir by the queen of daytime television.

Writing with the warmth and humour that have made her so popular, Coleen describes her eventful life, from joining her sisters' band, The Nolans, when she was only nine to growing up in the spotlight as they went on to chart-topping success around the world.

Coleen also reveals how she coped with her tumultuous marriage to television star Shane Richie and how, after they split, she was left a single parent struggling to get through each day. She landed the job of presenter on This Morning and was just finding her feet when she was sacked, plunging her into depression as she lost all confidence.

A way out finally came in the form of the chat show Loose Women, where Coleen reclaimed her place in the nation's hearts. Today, she is happily married and an inspiration to women everywhere who believed their 'best days' were behind them.

Entertaining, funny and shockingly honest, this book is sure to appeal to her many fans, old and new.

Very enjoyable

No pretence. No holds barred. Refreshing and honest. A real life story, depicts Coleen exactly as she appears, but shows a depth she doesn't always reveal on TV. The story of her marriage break up brought familiar feelings and memories of my own. Not just me that felt i was going mad then. Thanks for your honesty Coleen.

A little short, but beautifully written and read by Colleen. Really recommended.
