The man who was crowned the King of the Jungle on TV's I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! is a national treasure at the heart of the entertainment universe for more than forty years.
His radiant personality and wicked sense of humour have made him a hit with millions of fans and has won him widespread admiration. But who is the man behind the sunny smile? Biggins, as he is affectionately known, reveals all in his memoir and in conversation with TV and Radio presenter Judi Speirs.

I was particularly delighted by how many of the audience seemed to know and appreciate my work. As you know, authors are solitary creatures - mostly - and for me at least it's a real pleasure to have good reason to leave my work-room (a shed in the garden with a too-seductive view of the Cambrians) and meet and talk with readers and fellow writers (not forgetting that many of us are both).
William and I had a very interesting and often hilarious time putting (our presentation) together – fortunately we both wanted to be thoroughly prepared, so we refined and refined… we enjoyed ourselves, aided and abetted by the helpfulness of you and yours behind the scenes, the warmth of the audience, and the pleasantness of the setting. Speaking at your festival was an altogether happy experience. I only wish I had managed to organise listening to many of the other talks, which I really wanted to do… Many congratulations to you and all your team, and all wishes for Festival no. 3!
We really enjoyed the talks we attended... and look forward to next year's event... Kate Adie was brilliant
A really enjoyable and unusual event. I got a good feeling from it. And am so glad the Festival in general has gone well.
I don't think you could improve on the experience! Good luck with your plans for 2017 and I wish you all the very best.
I felt truly privileged to be able to enjoy so many events in your excellent programme...quite sumptuous! Had I been able to, I would have booked every event!
