Fools Rush In by Anthea Turner
For the last ten years Anthea Turner has probably been the most popular presenter on TV. She has also been the constant target of extraordinary media attention, regularly on the front pages of national newspapers. In FOOLS RUSH IN Anthea presents herself as her fans have never seen before. It is a forthright, emotive & inspiring account of the life of a great survivor tinged with tragedy. It's the story of what it's really like to live on 'Planet Fame' & the price its inhabitants often have to pay, & a compelling insider's account of:
*Working at Radio 1 and her fraught relationship with DJ Bruno Brookes.
*Presenting the BBC's 'Top of the Pops', the first female non-Radio 1 DJ to do so.
*'doing the settee' on GMTV breakfast television (and working with Eamonn Holmes).
*Presenting the 'National Lottery Live' on BBC on Saturdays to millions.
* And, last but not least, 'Blue Peter'. FOOLS RUSH IN describes Anthea's marriage to Peter Powell, its painful break-up when she found herself in love with Grant Bovey & its consequences, and where one of TV's most luminous personalities goes from here.
