Book Description

31 May 2007
Lorraine Kelly is Britain's undisputed Queen of breakfast television. Millions of us have been waking up to her for more than 20 years - from TV-am and GMTV through to "This Morning" and her phenomenally successful show "LK Today". Her genuine warmth, enthusiasm and energy have made her the most-loved broadcaster in Britain - and one of the best connected people in entertainment. But there is far more to Lorraine than just glossy television shows. Born in a one-bedroom flat in Glasgow's notorious Gorbals district, she became a journalist the hard way. She spent years learning her trade on local papers before working as a researcher on BBC Scotland - where bosses told her she would never get a job in front of a camera. Since then Lorraine has certainly proved them wrong. Since joining TV-am she has reported on some of the toughest stories of the age - from the Piper Alpha and Lockerbie disasters to the tragedy at Dunblane. And with every job she has shown the sensitivity and compassion that have helped viewers take her to their hearts. Today Lorraine is a true television superwoman - and in her first ever biography, we chart her extraordinary life and career; the endless struggles with her weight and the reason why she thinks the word 'diet' should be banned; the happiness she has found with husband Steve and daughter Rosie; the old friends who have kept her grounded in London's showbiz jungle; and the real reason why she started running marathons in her 40s - raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity in the process. Lorraine Kelly is an inspiration and a national treasure.

1.0 out of 5 stars God, give me strength to live among such people 10 Jun 2009
Example of a fascinating review!:
The book arrived really promptly. The condition of the book was good, but there was a small mark on page 14 and a stain on page 55. There was also a stray black hair between pages 100 and 101.
Nobody reads the reviews for this kind of irrelevant nonsense!! I don't pick up the Times educational supplement and expect to read such drivel, should amazon be any different??
