One of the UK's favorite comedy actresses—with starring roles in Calendar Girls, Acorn Antiques, and Dinnerladies—tells her extraordinary and highly entertaining life story. Celia Imrie was born one of five children to an aristocratic mother who married beneath her station. Desperate to be a ballet dancer, Celia was told by the Royal Ballet School that she was too big and in a desperate effort to lose weight Celia became anorexic. She underwent highly controversial ECT and brainwashing treatment. It didn't work and she eventually cured herself.

Celia Imrie is an Olivier Award-winning actress. She has been described as "one of the greatest British actresses of recent decades."Review:
Her new autobiography is full of drama... and obviously, from someone so closely associated with comedy, it's extremely funny * Gay Times * From the moment where she finds herself on stage with scenery stuck to her cardigan, to the time she was kidnapped on her way to a location, she emerges with both her sense of humour and dignity in tact. * Good Housekeeping, Book of the Month * If you're anything like me, seeing Celia Imrie's name flash onscreen inspires a sigh of relief. I think, "Class act. Everything's going to be OK." Her memoir, The Happy Hoofer, is every bit as assured and entertaining. It's a lively romp populated by the entertainment world's great, good, and downright naughty (often Imrie). * Scotsman Magazine *
