9780007345700: Memoirs of a Fruitcake

In It’s Not What You Think Chris Evans had seemingly found the recipe for success. He was rich, famous, and now the owner of his own radio station and media company. What could possibly go wrong? As it turned out, the answer was everything—well, almost. When we left our loveable ginger hero at the end of It's Not What You Think, it looked like Chris had made it. But things were about to take a very dark turn. Soon Chris’s childhood dreams of a job in radio lay in tatters, and as an endless drink-fueled lifestyle began to take its toll, he plunged into a downward spiral so deep that escape seemed almost impossible. And then his salvation appeared, in the form of a young singer called Billie Piper. Told with the same wit, verve, and startling honesty that surprised and delighted readers of It’s Not What You Think, this is the final part, for now, of Chris Evans’s journey of self discovery.

About the Author:

Chris Evans began his broadcasting career at Manchester's Piccadilly Radio, going on to become a household name in TV and radio. He launched and presented the hugely successful Channel 4 shows The Big Breakfast, Don't Forget Your Toothbrush, and TFI Friday, before moving to radio in 1996. Chris hosted Radio 1's flagship breakfast show, attracting 7.5m listeners, Virgin Radio's breakfast show and went on to join Radio 2 in 2005. He soon moved to the prestigious Breakfast Show, succeeding Sir Terry Wogan and exceeding his listening figures, before re-joining television on BBC One's The One Show. He can commonly be seen cavorting and entertaining the nation every Friday, as the show's co-host.
