Richard and Judy: The Autobiography by Richard Madeley
Described as the nation's best-loved couple, Richard and Judy have been on television togther for 18 years. For 13 of those they fronted This Morning, the most popular British daytime programme ever, and their departure gave rise to huge newspaper coverage when they left in 2001. Now back with a Channel 4 show, the couple write the full story of their lives: their childhoods, unsuccessful first marriages and professional and personal lives together. In juxtaposed accounts, we hear about Judy's many health problems and how Richard coped with the lowest points. We find out how both of them survived his court ordeal on a shoplifting charge, how Judy felt on baring more than her soul at a TV awards ceremony, why they left This Morning, and how they handle home, work and parenthood, as well as the ever-curious press.
