Susannah Constantine – Ready For Absolutely Nothing

A gleeful memoir from the former TV Style Guru

Former TV style guru Susannah Constantine’s gleeful new memoir takes us from boarding school through her Sloane Ranger years to her turn as Anton Du Beke’s worst-ever Strictly partner.

Rock stars to royalty, society to sobriety, get to know the real Susannah Constantine in the hottest memoir of the year!

Along the way we learn of a visit to Balmoral where she witnessed Mrs Thatcher battling the Queen for control of a tea pot, hear about the TV years with Trinny Woodhall and what it’s like to be besties with Sir Elton John.

Expect gossip, style, laughter and some unexpected encounters in the ladies’.
