Biography of the stars...
22 November 1999 | by DudlesSee all my reviews

Although initially a spin off from the US series of the same name, so far the UK version has outlasted it by 38 years and still going strong.

Every week a celebrity is suprised and has their own mini-biography read of the "big red book", including re-meeting many of the people they've worked with/met along the way.

Although of course you don't get a celebrity you like each week it's always interesting descovering the early career of someone you've seen on TV for years.
