'How did I end up here?' A question Elaine C. Smith asked herself when sitting in the dressing-room of a top theatre in London's West End, about to go on stage with one of the UK's most successful plays. In Nothing Like a Dame, Elaine reflects on a 50-year journey that took her to the peak of the entertainment world. She recounts her long struggle to make it in a male-dominated, working-class society when women were supposed to just shut up and stay thin, especially in the sexist world of theatre and television, where she was told, 'Look, women just aren't funny.' Despite many highs and lows, she proceeded to forge a stellar career in show business, hosting her own TV series and becoming a household name thanks to her comic portrayal of Mary Nesbitt, the long-suffering wife in the award-winning BBC comedy Rab C. Nesbitt. Nothing Like a Dame is a heart-warming memoir: candid, outspoken, hilarious and at times deeply sad.

Dame Phyllis Frost was a remarkable woman who chaired countless organisations, raised millions of dollars for charitable causes, galvanised states into action after natural disasters and shamed countless politicians into action. Far from being `just a suburban housewife?? a phrase that she wielded like a weapon in her campaigns ? Dame Phyllis was a force to be reckoned with. Nothing Like a Dame, her biography by BERNADETTE CLOHESY, reveals how Dame Phyllis fought for prison reform at a time when prisoners were locked away and forgotten; how she established the Keep Australia Beautiful movement; and how she became the national president of the Australian Freedom from Hunger Campaign. This is an amazing story following one woman?s battle for social reform.

There’s only one Christopher Biggins. The man who was crowned the King of the Jungle on TV’s I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! has been at the heart of the entertainment universe for more than forty years. His radiant personality and wicked sense of humour have made him a hit with millions of fans and won him the admiration of many of his peers. Within these pages, the man affectionately known as ‘Biggins’ finally reveals all...In this candid autobiography, Biggins tells the full story of his colourful, packed life. He tells of how upon moving to London he became immersed in theatre life, a passion he continues to succeed in today and from which he draws countless dazzling stories, such as stripping off with Judi Dench and the time he fell asleep on stage!Thanks to television roles as diverse as Poldark, Porridge and Rentaghost, Biggins became one of the best-known faces of television and stage. Yet the path to fame and fortune was not always easy. At a time when being gay was not as freely accepted as it is today, Biggins kept a lid on his true sexuality, as well as facing problems such as brushes with the law and the overcoming of a downward spiral into debt. Like its author, this book is candid and hilarious. It is a rip-roaring read bursting with showbiz anecdotes, celebrity gossip and tales of a life lived to the full.
