Victoria Wood's wit and humour have endeared her to millions of TV viewers for over three decades. Writer, producer and actress on television shows such as As Seen on TV and Dinnerladies, Victoria Wood has been voted the funniest woman in Britain and won the Outstanding Achievement Award along with Julie Walters at the British Comedy Awards in 2005.
 
In this updated biography her rise to stardom, from her early years in Lancashire to the successes of the sell-out shows at the Royal Albert Hall, is sympathetically and honestly portrayed by Neil Brandwood. With a new chapter covering the success of the stage version of Acorn Antiques, this meticulously researched and written biography provides an insightful account of the life and career of one of Britain's best-loved comediennes.
