Diary of a C-List Celeb by Paul Hendy
Languishing a good few rungs below Keith Chegwin and Su Pollard on the showbiz ladder but above that scouse bloke who won the first series of â€˜Big Brotherâ, minor TV personality Simon Peters feels heâs doomed to a career in the celebrity limbo of daytime game shows and home shopping channels. He never seems to be invited to the right parties and invariably sleeps with all the wrong people; his agent has trouble remembering his name and even his stalker is more famous than he is. And just when things couldnât get any worse (and letâs be honest, whoâs ever won a BAFTA playing panto in Grimsby) the plug is pulled on his TV show and stardom beckons his worst enemy.
But, however riddled with insecurities he may be, Simon knows heâs got what it takes to make it and heâs not going to let a silly little thing like a complete lack of talent get in the way.
Giving fame a long overdue (but not too hard) slap on the wrist, Diary of a C-List Celeb is a wickedly funny, deliciously observed novel of burning ambition, unrequited love, celebrity punch-ups and serial bad dressing by a new literary talent who knows this world all too well.
