Synopsis

Back in Control My Story by Tina Malone

Fans of Channel 4's ground-breaking drama Shameless know and love Tina Malone for her portrayal of the loud-mouthed, larger-than-life Mimi Maguire. But what they may not know is that Tina's own life has been more dramatic, more outrageous and frequently more out of control than anything the most talented scriptwriter could imagine. Tina's incredible story begins with an unusual childhood in Liverpool and takes the reader on a wild journey through teenage rebellion (and teenage pregnancy) to Tina's turbulent years as a young actress and single mother, before finding fame on Brookside and, later, Shameless. This is a story of addictions, mental illness, bankruptcy, extreme dieting, loves, losses and one woman's incredible resilience - and sense of humour - during a life that's seen more than its fair share of turmoil. And now, Tina is finally BACK IN CONTROL: in love, at peace and, after a course of IVF, a mother again at the age of 50 and looking forward to a wonderful new chapter in her life. Never one to shy away from controversy, Tina Malone's fearless and funny autobiography will inspire and entertain in equal measure.
