Billie Piper was born in Swindon in 1983. In her first career, starting at age fifteen, she had seven top five hit singles in five years, including three number ones. At eighteen, she married TV presenter Chris Evans in Las Vegas. She has recently appeared in BBC productions of The Canterbury Tales, Much Ado About Nothing and most famously, as Rose in Doctor Who. She was voted Most Popular Actress at the National Television Awards in 2005 and won The Times Breakthrough Award in 2006. Billie lives in North London.
I am always wary of celeb autobiographies and even more so when the celeb is barely out of nappies, but this one does stand out as being frank and honest and actually quite well written though she probably didnâ€™t write it. That said, anyone with a passing interest in her or in her thoughts and experiences in and around the set of Doctor Who just might want to dip into this in order to gain a greater understanding of this young lady.
This is an astonishingly candid insight into the world of Billie Piper. Famous since the age of 15 - first as the face of Smash Hits, then as a pop singer with three No.1 hits in less than three years - Billie Piper has won over the critics and the British public for a second time by re-inventing herself as an actress in BBC productions of Much Ado About Nothing, The Canterbury Tales and, of course, Doctor Who. And that's just the professional Billie. In this book, for the first time, she talks honestly about her whirwind romance and marriage to Chris Evans, about her battles with anorexia and the dark side of teen fame. Moving, funny and honest, this is a page-turning read by one of the nation's favourite stars.
