Described as the nation's best-loved couple, Richard and Judy have been on television togther for 18 years. For 13 of those they fronted "This Morning", the most popular British daytime programme ever, and their departure gave rise to huge newspaper coverage when they left in 2001. Now back with a Channel 4 show, the couple write the full story of their lives: their childhoods, unsuccessful first marriages and professional and personal lives together. In juxtaposed accounts, we hear about Judy's many health problems and how Richard coped with the lowest points. We find out how both of them survived his court ordeal on a shoplifting charge, how Judy felt on baring more than her soul at a TV awards ceremony, why they left "This Morning", and how they handle home, work and parenthood, as well as the ever-curious press.

Review:

Detractors notwithstanding, Richard and Judy are one of the nation's best-known couples. On television for 18 years, they fronted the popular daytime programme This Morning for 13 of those years and their departure was big news in 2001. Now back with a Channel 4 show, they grant us the full story of their lives - their childhoods, unsuccessful first marriages, and, of course, their own professional and personal lives together. In juxtaposed accounts, we hear about Judy's many health problems; Richard's shoplifting charge; Judy's baring more than her soul at a TV awards ceremony; why they left This Morning (and we all thought they were sacked). It will be difficult to miss the launch of this book: multi-part, TV advertised serialisation, etc. Love 'em or hate 'em, Richard and Judy will shift a few books.
