Eamonn Holmes is one of the most popular TV presenters in the UK. For twelve years he was the main anchor at GMTV drawing daily audiences of six million viewers. His humour, easy presenting style and ability to think on his feet have earned him not only millions of fans but several industry awards. But success has come at a cost ...Both Eamonn's TV career and his life have been roller coasters of highs and lows. At the age of 21 Eamonn became the youngest ever anchorman in Irish television but when his show was axed, he faced an uncertain future. No home, no job and mounting debts prompted crippling panic attacks. And when his beloved father died, Eamonn made a clean break and deciding to take a job on a brand new morning show, GMTV. The rest is history. From having a gun held to his head in Belfast to the breakdown of his marriage; from the TV guests he has loved and loathed; from rows with co-presenter Anthea Turner to his burning ambition to make it as a TV presenter, this book will have Eamonn talk about the highs and lows of his life as he has never done before.
For 25 years Eamonn has been one of television's most loved personalities and this book promises to have wide appeal and reach his many fans.
