A candid and ultimately inspirational memoir from the much-loved Steps star. Claire Richards is loved by women everywhere for her warm and genuine personality. Now she writes honestly about her life, taking us from the bullied schoolgirl who dreamed of peforming at Wembley to finding stardom with Steps. She reveals the secrets of the music industry and what it's really like to be in a band at the top of their career, from the unhealthy pressure to stay thin to the backstage rows. She describes how the stress of her affair caused her to starve herself, and explains why she and fellow bandmate H controversially resigned. Claire also opens us about why her first marriage to Steps dancer Mark didn't last, her dramatic weight gain and years of yo-yo dieting as she battled low self-esteem, and how she found happiness with second husband Reece and their two children Charlie and Daisy. And she takes us behind the scenes of the Steps reunion tour as old issues rose to the surface. Entertaining, touching and funny, this is sure to appeal to Claire's many fans.
Claire Richards shot to fame in the hugely successful band Steps. She has had her own hit shows on BBC3 and Sky Living, sang her way to the semi-final of ITV1's Popstar to Opera Star, cooked up a storm on Celebrity Masterchef, and recently reformed with Steps for a sell out arena tour and No. 1 greatest hits album.
