Pauline Prescott Book and Novel

Pauline Prescott - Author


Pauline Prescott lives on the outskirts of Hull, not far from where she grew up, and where her husband John Prescott, the former Deputy Prime Minister, has been a Labour MP since the 1970's. Born in 1940, and likened to the glamorous Elizabeth Taylor, she trained as a hairdresser and it was her wages that supported them during John's eight years of university and growing political ambition. She is her husband's biggest champion, even canvassing with him when eight months pregnant. Her loyalty and family values are just as strong today.

Pauline recently appeared alongside her husband in a two-part documentary called Prescott – The Class System and Me which won the Channel 4 Political Award for best political documentary.
