Description

'Honest and relatable' - Red

'A cracking read. Sophie's voice is all the way through this.' - Lorraine, ITV

'This book is absolutely beautiful' - Zoe Ball, Radio 2


SOPHIE ELLIS-BEXTOR - SINGER, WRITER AND QUEEN OF THE KITCHEN DISCO, BRINGS HER DOWN TO EARTH HONESTY AND OPTIMISITC SPARKLE TO HER FIRST BOOK.

In SPINNING PLATES Sophie writes openly about her life. From a childhood flogging Blue Peter badges in the playground to joining Theaudience straight from school, to finding love after a troubled relationship, and becoming mother to five boys. By choosing to speak on issues close to her heart, Sophie invites all of us to join the conversation and bring the trickier subjects out of the shadows and into the light.

Covering relationships, good-enough parenting, the highs - and the lows - of competing on Strictly Come Dancing and Dad Jokes - Sophie writes about the things that take on greater and lesser importance. This is a book about not being afraid to smash a few plates for the sake of what we actually need, want and value.

Honest, heartfelt and highly entertaining.
