Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743495853, Paperback)Lord Brocket of Brocket Hall appeared to be just the token toff when he took part in the 2004 series of the hit ITV show I'M A CELEBRITY, GET ME OUT OF HERE! But in a matter of days he had become the life and soul of the party, bonding with such unlikely camp-mates as Johnny Rotten and fondling Jordan and Alex Best. With his unfailing bonhomie and irrepressible sense of fun, Brocket helped make the show compulsive viewing and endeared him to millions. Now, in this hilarious and candid autobiography, he tells his incredible story in full. From his silver-spoon childhood to a life of great wealth, fast cars and faster women, Lord B experienced a lifestyle granted to only a select few -- even among the aristocracy. But an error of judgement led to a stunning change of fortune, when an ill-advised scheme to help him save his ancestral home led to conviction for fraud and prison. But if his spell in the British Army had shown Brocket a world beyond debutantes and diamonds, a spell at Her Majesty's pleasure stripped him of any sense of being a class apart. Brocket emerged a humbler man, still a peer of the realm but one who had really seen how the other half lived. This is his story: full of tall tales, all the more amazing for being true, and told with the warmth and wit of one of the last great eccentrics.
