As Britains highest paid female singing star of the 1960s, Kathy Kirby enjoyed a showbusiness lifestyle with all the trappings of success a home in Mayfair, minks, diamonds and champagne on tap. In this explosive new book, Mark Willerton has attempted to strip away the faade of fame to reveal the real Kathy Kirby the girl behind the lip-gloss. Here, at last, is the truth behind the headlines; a compelling account of Kathys enigmatic life and career, which has never been told so frankly. The author was a friend of the star for almost thirty years and alongside his own recollections, he has drawn on commentary by Kathys friends, neighbours, contemporaries, song-writers and managers. Part biography and part memoir, there are many exclusives within the book; rare and previously unseen photos taken by the author during Kathys reclusive years. Kathy was a complex character, beautiful, glamorous and hugely talented but flawed by debilitating mental illness and an addictive personality. Her story reveals the other side of showbusiness what happens when a star fades and falls to earth.
