AN amusing autobiography as the actress tells of her life and times from her childhood in Ramsgate to the red-carpet treatment at Cannes.

The early part of the book about living surrounded by bomb sites and then working in Woolworth's gives an insight into her down-to-life appeal.

It was not until she became involved in amateur dramatics that she realised she had a certain talent for acting.

That talent has now been recognised and her acting prowess demonstrated in her success in Mike Leigh's Secrets and Lies.
