It's easy to focus on the glitz and glamour of celebrity lifestyles without knowing what's happening behind the scenes. Christine McGuinness is well known for being the wife of comedian and Top Gear presenter Paddy McGuinness, as well as being a model and TV star in her own right. In her book, A Beautiful Nightmare, she offers a raw account of her life, including dealing with anorexia, heavy drinking, infertility and, in more recent years, parenting three young, autistic children. Her book offers honest insight into the nitty-gritty of daily life – schooling, mealtimes, family outings, parties, and more – with its tough times, challenges, love and laughter. She shows that autism is more than just a statistic or description on a page. This is a real family struggling and worrying about what the future holds. As a final revelation, a diagnosis reveals that Christine is autistic, too, leading to much soul searching about her own life experiences. Hopefully, having been written by a high-profile TV celebrity, A Beautiful Nightmare will offer some comfort and support to other parents in a similar situation – that they're not alone – and will also raise awareness and understanding of autism among the book's readers and Christine's existing fans.
