Curly Watts is a TV icon – for twenty years appearing on millions of TV screens around the country in Coronation Street. Kevin Kennedy is one of the UK’s most successful soap actors, although behind the scenes and high-profile appearances, he faced a painful personal battle.

In this tell-all autobiography Kevin shares his experiences of alcoholism, rehab and IVF as well stories from the set and stars he worked with during some of the brightest, and darkest moments of his life, through to his music career and current roles.

This brutally honest autobiography provides a rare glimpse into life behind the scenes, the power of addiction, and his battle with recovery.

‘Kev and I have been friends for a long long time, when I asked him for help, he was there for me 100%. His book is from the heart, full of hope and inspiration, a must read for all who want to know more about recovery.’ Denise Welch

‘This book will rock you, just as brilliant Kevin rocks us night after night at the Dominion. He is unstoppable.’ Brian May

‘Really well written and brutally honest autobiography’ Richard Madeley

'Alcoholism is cunning, baffling and powerful. It is the only life threatening health condition that continually tries to convince the sufferer that they haven’t got it. Kevin Kennedy’s autobiography shows how alcoholism crept up on him and nearly killed him. With humour, humility and honesty, Kevin tells us how he found recovery and is now living a life beyond his wildest dreams. This is an inspirational book and a great read.’ Mark Gilman, International Addiction and Recovery Expert
