What past achievements are you all most proud of? Here is one of mine…..

#ThrowbackThursday to 1997, and to when I was I was working at Chris Tarrant’s management company, and Chris of course was the host/presenter of the iconic gameshow “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” on ITV. I worked at his management company for seven years from 1996 to 2002.

At that time I had the pleasure of working with Chris to help write parts of his book “Tarrant off the Record”, proofreading it several times and liaising with his then publishers Harper Collins to get it released. I lost my copy of it somewhere over the years, and I managed to find one on recently on ebay for £1.99!

I spent hours working on this book back in the day and I just love Chris’s hilarious take on things from his life and career including fishing, being a radio DJ at Capital Radio, soap opera characters (namely “Crossroads”, remember that folks), touring as one of “The Four Bucketeers” and the legendary Capital Radio Christmas parties to name but a few.

I’m so chuffed to have this book again, it really is one of the most hysterical reads ever, and I’m so proud to have worked on it at the tender age of 24 😊
