Book Description

6 Sep 2007
Leslie Ash has been one of Britain's most popular actresses for many years now, having made her big break in the film 'Quadrophenia'. In the 1980s she starred in 'Cat's Eyes', but it is as Deb in 'Men Behaving Badly' that she is best known. Yet this hugely successful career is only a part of the story. Her marriage to Lee Chapman has been turbulent, as they lived (and partied) the celebrity lifestyle to the full. Viewed as a 'beaten' spouse, a blonde bimbo and the 'victim' of plastic surgery, she has been pigeon-holed by many but understood by few. Now, in her long-awaited memoirs, she tells the whole story from the day she first appeared on TV at four to advertise Fairy Liquid, through to her battle to recover from the superbug that nearly killed her and how it transformed her life and made her understand what is really important. Leslie now campaigns for better hygiene in hospitals. This is an astonishing, moving and yet very funny memoir.

2.0 out of 5 stars if you say it enough, you might believe it. 10 Oct 2007
By Sfield
i bought this book believeing that what i was reading would be the total truth. but sadly i cannot believe that accidents, so unbelievable as was stated in the book ,when she cracked her ribs, is total lies.i think leslie is in such denial of her husbands abuse, that she believes by writing it down, it will be more credable. but sadly, no it doesnt leslie.the read of this book is mostly about drinking sessions and accidents, as leslie states in book. only buy this book if you are learning to read full sentences,or locked up in a prison cell, as it is totally not worth the time or money you will spend on such a book of un truths.

3.0 out of 5 stars "DON'T EVER CHANGE" 5 Jan 2014

I love this enterprising girl and I'll always want to meet her. For her strong and lasting performance with david Threlfall in "The Marksman" all those years ago still haunts me now, because I felt it was "much closer to the real Leslie Ash" The highly-strung and sensitive one, that's accidentally a little bit fast. And was even born on the same day as my late wife. The autobiography was great. You were coming along fine, Les, I related to your illness. You had the great highs and the great lows. I agreed with every judgement you made about Brian Clough. And if only Lee hadn't kicked that wreched front-door in, I'd still be a founder-member. Yours Faithfully, David Oates, up in Leeds.
