Joe Longthorne’s autobiography is now available as an extensively updated paperback edition.

Since being published in hardback in 2010, Joe’s roller-coaster life has continued with successful UK tours, Blackpool Grand Theatre residencies, a car crash which left him and his partner with bad injuries, the loss of one of his closest friends – Pat Mancini – to cancer and receiving an MBE in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Every chapter of the original book has been updated and several brand new ones, reflecting the past two years, have been included in the new paperback edition.

The photograph sections have also been expanded and many new previously unpublished photos added.

Joe says: ‘I’ve been very fortunate in my life. My battle with cancer has been a long hard road but fingers-crossed I’m OK now. I have the best fans, who I prefer to call friends, in the entertainment business.”
