Who Does She Think She Is?: My Autobiography

Who Does She Think She Is?: My Autobiography

by Martine Mc Cutcheon (Author)

Synopsis

'Who does she think she is?' is something Martine has heard people say about her all her life. Born into the poorest and least-promising background and with only a loving mother's support to help her, Martine has dared to follow her dreams of stardom and has achieved more in her twenty-four years than most of those who turned their noses up at her achieve in a lifetime. It's a story that includes a life on the run from a violent father, drink, drugs and even an attempted murder that filled her childhood with fear; her early attempts at pop stardom and first loves, plus dates with Matt Goss and Mick Hucknall; her big break in EastEnders, and the shocking story of how she really came to leave the series. Martine's story ends with today's triumphs over the tragedies of her life: the number one and platinum-selling singles and album, the starring roles in a new television series, a feature film and in My Fair Lady at The National Theatre. The British public have taken Martine McCutcheon to their hearts - she is 'one of us' - and her life story is an inspiration to anyone born without any apparent advantages.

Author Bio
Born in May 1976, Martine McCutcheon later attended the Italia Conti Stage School from where she went on to her best-known TV performance as Tiffany in EastEnders. The last year has been the most spectacular of Martine's life: she was nominated for Best Newcomer and Best Pop Act at The Brits, was voted the Showbusiness Personality of the Year by the Variety Club of Great Britain, and had a number one single and album, both of which achieved platinum and double platinum status respectively.
