Roy Hudd has been a star of stage, screen and radio since the 1950's, when he began his career as a redcoat at Butlins.
Born in Croydon and raised by his much loved grandmother (who gave him the title for this book), Roy's stories of family life, evacuation, National Service and the early days of his show business career are poignant and funny in turn. Looking back over his extraordinary life he tells of the highs and lows of working in radio and television, the ongoing joy of performing live and he paints wonderfully vivid portraits of the many people with whom he has worked.
From Fagin to Archie Shuttleworth and from Dennis Potter dramas to light opera, there’s no easy way of defining this multi-talented man, and his autobiography sparkles with the fun and laughter he has brought to millions of people over the years.
