Waterstones Says

From a tearaway youth in Bolton to Take Me Out and telly stardom, the comedy favourite spins his wildly entertaining life story through laugh-out-loud anecdotes and the occasional moving moment.

Get the kettle on, the biscuits out and settle in for a belting read.

Paddy McGuinness is a much-loved presence on British TV. His stand-up tours sell out across the country. His acting roles are legendary, from Phoenix Nights and Max and Paddy to The Keith and Paddy Picture Show.

How did all start? Let Paddy take you back to a two-up, two-down terrace in 1970's Bolton, where his lifey began. He grew up alone with his beloved mum, neighbourhood matriarch Pat, who worked two jobs, as a barmaid and a cleaner, always keeping food on the table at home and almost always keeping her tearaway teen out of trouble.

The road from kipping in abandoned cars with his mates in Bolton to racing supercars on Top Gear has been eventful, with multiple turning points, including formative hard graft as a labourer, running a Viagra racket at a health centre, a showbiz intervention by schoolfriend Peter Kay and eye-popping adventures in the world of teledom.

While he may have swapped cobbles in Bolton for red carpets in London, Paddy has always stayed true to his Lancashire roots, and here he tells his story for the first time, in his own unmistakable style. He lived it. He's written in. It's his lifey - fast-paced, funny and full of character, just like him.
