It’s quite exciting news that Claudia Winkleman is releasing a book. It will be her first novel and will be published via Harper Collins and their imprint HQ Young Adult in October.
Claudia invites us all into her world. This is a memoir with a difference (owing to its lack of a plot – genuinely, how do people do that?), and Claudia shares her observations on topics such as the importance of melted cheese, why black coats are vital, how it’s never okay to have sex with someone who has an opinion on your date outfit, how nurses are our most precious national treasure, and why colourful clothing is only for the under 10s (if you’re reading this sporting a bright red jumper and you’re 9, great! If you’re older, sorry).
This is a love letter to life – the real, sometimes messy kind. Quite celebrates friendship, the power of art, the highs and lows of parenting, and of course, how a good eyeliner can really save your life.
Claudia is best known for her work on television as co-presenter of BBC’s hugely popular Saturday night dance show, Strictly Come Dancing. She stepped in to help present the show with Tess Daly, after original host Bruce Forsyth retired. Prior to that, she hosted the show’s spin off, Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two.
