Born into the poorest and least-promising background and with only a loving mother's support to help her, Martine has dared to follow her dreams of stardom and has packed more in her twenty-four years than most. Her story starts with a life on the run from a violent father, drinks, drugs, abduction and even an attempted murder, moving on to her early bid for pop stardom, early loves, her big break in EastEnders, the behind-the-scenes friendships and enmities and the shocking story of how she really came to leave the series. The British public have taken Martine McCutcheon to their hearts - she is 'one of us' - and her life story is an inspiration to anyone who dares to dream.

Martine McCutcheon's story begins with a violent father, alcohol and drugs; her early attempts at pop stardom, her big break in EastEnders, and the shocking truth of how she came to leave the series. It ends with today's triumphs: a number one single and a platinum album, a new TV series, a feature film, and the lead in My Fair Lady at the National Theatre.
From the Hardcover edition.
Born in May 1976, Martine McCutcheon later attended the Italia Conti Stage School from where she went on to her best-known TV performance as Tiffany in EastEnders. The last year has been the most spectacular of Martine's life: she was nominated for Best Newcomer and Best Pop Act at The Brits, was voted the Showbusiness Personality of the Year by the Variety Club of Great Britain, and had a number one single and album, both of which achieved platinum and double platinum status respectively.
