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.

Very well organised, excellent variety in terms of author and presentation. Favourite was Tony Robinson, but I also really enjoyed Julia Shaw (memory very thought provoking), Richard Dannatt (good solid start to festival) JOHN Wright (local and good humour) Alison Weir (such research and knowledge) and Victoria Hislop (novel in a different style).
I sip my Dorset tea and just wanted to say thanks so much for the invitation to the lit fest - I thoroughly enjoyed it...
Absolute pleasure, thanks for such an enjoyable night. I think having Tony Robinson there promoting his autobiography was a great idea...
I'm now back at my desk after Ann Cleeves' mammoth book tour and wanted to send a note to say a huge thank you for hosting such a fantastic event for us. It was a definite highlight out of the 30 events!
It was much appreciated that you included Victoria Hislop in this year's festival. As always she was charming and entertaining.
...Enjoyable, engaging, enthralling...
