Bruce Jones reveals Corrie secrets in autobiography

This won't be on my Christmas list but it's out and so I'm blogging it.

Bruce Jones, who played Coronation Street's Les Battersby, has released his autobiography. Well, when I say "his autobiography" it is actually written with Chris Berry and Ronnie Oliver. 

Here's some info from the book blurb:

Best known for his role as Coronation Street's loud-mouthed but likable rogue, Les Batterbsy, Bruce Jones' new biography will be as explosive as any of his on-screen alter ego's punch-ups.
 
Of course, all Corrie fans will want to know about life on the street and Bruce is open and revealing in his insights into his fellow Coronation Street stars and how living his life in the full glare of publicity affected his health and family life.
 
His fall from grace - dismissal from Coronation Street, battles with alcoholism, drink-driving prosecutions, bankruptcy and family upsets - have all been luridly splashed across the tabloid press. And Bruce doesn't shirk from revealing the truth and private misery behind these headlines.

Sad. Just sad.

He'll try ANYTHING to grasp at another 15 minutes of fame, won't he? Particularly sad given the recent release of "Jack & Me". I can only imagine a collector would buy it as a humourous yet creepy addition.

Didn't he also find one of the Yorkshire Ripper's victims?
