Author note

Famous newspaper columnist. The first woman to regularly edit a national newspaper.

Watchdog more than doubled its audience after Anne Robinson joined it, getting sit-com ratings.

The Weakest Link attracted the largest number of daytime viewers in the history of television.


A cracking, unsentimental good her or loathe her, Robinson has produced a book that revolutionises the celebrity autobiography
THE OBSERVER||Devastating, original, self-lacerating, glittering with anger and thwarted maternal love...the book, like Robinson herself, is a combustable mixture of ferocity and vulnerability
DAILY TELEGRAPH||Robinson is no heroine- at least of all in her own eyes...but she is admirable.
THE SPECTATOR||It's a brilliant read, and a lesson to would-be-showbiz blog writers.
