Publisher's Summary

Narrated with her trademark humour, warmth and honesty, Davina McCall shares her life experiences.

'I am a work in progress. There are times when I feel in control and like I know what I'm doing...and there are times (quite a few) (actually lots) when I've got no idea what's going on, where to turn, what to do, how to behave, and those are the times I've sought help! I have been helped by some extraordinary people. I've been supported and counselled through my recovery from drugs and alcohol. I've been hypnotised to get me through my ultimate fears. I've read a squibillion (that's a lot) of fantastic self-help books and I have shared and shared with the greatest girlfriends and family of all time. These nuggets of wisdom have, at times, literally kept me going, so I thought I'd pay it forward and share them with you....'

In this long-awaited audiobook, Davina McCall shares the tips and wisdoms learned on her 'work-in-progress' journey through life.

Warm, engaging, honest and generous, this audiobook will make you laugh and cry in equal measure. Lessons I've Learned is the closest thing to a Davina hug and we all need one of those....

I was not expecting this book to be so fantastic!

Davinas audio book delivers the story of her life so far in a nutshell . Along the way she shares what she has learned and sprinkles in such funny stories and heartbreak . Such an honest read . I cried for the whole of the final chapter and have such love and respect for Davina . Thank you! X

I am now in love with Davina McCall

Wow well what can I say? I'm currently contemplating leaving my fiancé and stalking Davina ( in a none stalking stalky way, so more like strolling or gently meandering her) anyway she's hilarious, strong, silly, naughty and inspiring. Don't get me wrong I definitely don't agree with all of the advice or suggestions and i often blew a rasberry or two ( for someone who wrote a whole chapter on not moaning you surely do moan a lot women ha!) but I have never encountered a more honest and truthful account of hopes, dreams, sadness from someone on a never ending journey to want to be a better person, it was truely beguiling. It was made all the more special listening to Davina read out her own words and especially with such grace and humility told me about her life, just as if it was just us two sat in the kitchen having a cup of tea. Thank you sincerely for sharing your lifes ups, down and merry-go-rounds with me, it was marvelous.

Fantastically Brilliant and Honest

I really enjoyed listening to this! It was lovely to hear Davina herself read it, it's incredibly honest about pretty much everything!!
It's the kind of book you need a note pad beside you to take notes. Her lessons learnt are quite practical and can be transferred into ones own life. But there's ALOT! So having a pen and pad would be a handy tip.
I really enjoyed it and 100% recommend from around the age 15/16 years to read right up to around davinas age ish both male and female.
It leaves you feeling positive and as if you've had a good talk with a friend, that satisfied feeling you get.
AND shocker here.... she swears alittle. OMG lol. But as she reads you can tell she's completely lost herself and is just talking not reading. Which is lovely!
Two thumbs up and a huge thank you for the book! The honesty of it, and the kindness of taking time to pass it all on :)

It's BRILLIANT!

I've been a fan of Davina since her MTV days, so my review may be slightly biased....😊

This has been one of my favourite audiobooks ever. I think the fact Davina reads her story made it feel more personal, as though she was sitting there chatting to me. She is so honest and open and hearing her story helps connect the dots with how I see her on the t.v.

The advice and tips she provides are genuine and actually sound advice. Very uplifting for the most part with some genuinely touching emotional bits.

Loved Davina's style of reading, felt the emotion and have learnt some useful life lessons. Left me wanting more!

Really good in parts.

I loved the beginning chapters but found some chapters quite boring. Maybe because I'm older than Davina. At 48 she still has lots to learn but comes across like she knows it all. I did finish the book and Davina read it really well.
