JOY OF BIG KNICKERS:KATE GARRAWAY Book Number: 90114 Product format: Paperback
Why do we not talk about how important big knickers are? Will the menopause be a nightmare? How do we make love last? Kate Garraway, TV and radio presenter, turned 50 and questioned everything: 'Finding Your Sparkle' and dealing with 'Popping Your Clogs', to 'The Trouble With Sugar' and 'The Facelift Dilemma'. Sit with Kate in the GMB Make Up and Wardrobe department as she gleans advice from her team such as always try clothes on because they look terrible on the hanger, look at vogue.co.uk which offers fashion advice without paying the price of the magazine and don't take a friend with you when shopping as they struggle to be honest in the changing room. For your ease, Kate offers analysis of the many ways we try to eat ourselves healthy, from the 5:2 fasting diet, the 16/8 method where you only eat during an eight hour period of the day, the ketogenic diet and the Mediterranean diet which Kate's friend author, nutritionist and food presenter Tonia Buxton is a faithful advocate for. Explore motherhood with Kate, from how she keenly felt her age on the arrival of her teenage daughter's first pair of (low) heeled boots, to watching her child's 'Teddy Bears' Picnic' curtains be replaced by black ones to match the Bauhaus aesthetic of a new bedroom. The book also includes fantastic, colourful photographs from across Kate's life. Take a look at her days as a journalist: showing off the controller of her heated knickers while reporting at Donald Trump's presidential Inauguration at Washington, reporting from a Syrian refugee camp in 2013 and celebrating her 49th birthday at Smooth Radio, and admire the personal snapshots of behind-the-scenes hair styling before the ITV Gala, Kate on a muddy marathon with Susanna Reid and joyful images of Kate with friends, her husband (now sadly seriously ill from Covid) and her family. Paperback, colour photos, 292pp.
