Setting the record straight

In A WIGHT NOW, Michael takes us from his humble London childhood with an alcoholic father, his work as a Butlins Redcoat, through his marriage to Cheryl, to the peak of his extraordinary TV fame. Michaels big break came in 1975 when he won the TV talent show New Faces. From then on, he attracted huge ratings with his shows Barrymore, Strike it Lucky (which ran for nine series), My Kind of People, My Kind of Music and Kids Say the Funniest Things.
Despite phenomenal success, Michael began suffering increasing alcohol and drug problems. In 1997 he finally split from Cheryl, his wife of eighteen years. In the fall-out, he admitted that he was gay and endured horrendous press intrusion into his private life. Then, in 2001, a tragic accident at his home finally forced him to overcome his personal demons. Michael tells of his despair following the tragedy and how his world fell apart.
