Christine Hamilton has become a great British institution - love her or loathe her, you cannot ignore her. Christine is uncompromising, knows no fear and her loyalty to her husband is renowned. She has provided many of television's most memorable moments: her confrontation with the white-suited Martin Bell in the constituency of Tatton; facing the media on the steps of Barkingside police station following rape allegations (later disproved); getting tipsy and amorous with Louis Theroux; and her infamous appearance with Neil on Have I Got News For You. For Better or Worse displays Christine's great sense of fun and energy and her willingness to take risks, but it also reveals how vulnerable she is - candidly portraying the huge emotional and personal toll which life has taken on her, as well as the often amusing inside story behind the election and libel battles, and all the surrounding media hype which has accompanied the Hamiltons.
From her childhood and early political involvement (she was parliamentary secretary to the colourful Gerald Nabarro) to her marriage, court battles, Neil's bankruptcy and her struggle with alcohol dependency, Christine reveals all in her no-holds-barred autobiography.
