About the Author
Conceived in broad daylight in Clacton-on-Sea in the summer of 1958, Julian was born the following May to Peter Clary, a policeman, and Brenda. He lived in Surbiton with his parents and two older sisters, looking after guinea pigs and never even going to a single disco, until he left for Goldsmith's College at 18 to study Drama. From this epoch, the real Julian Clary catapulted himself to stardom. A veteran of the Edinburgh Festival and Royal Variety Show with countless other stage and screen credits, Julian recently reached the latter stages of the BBC's celebrity ballroom dancing contest, Strictly Come Dancing, and is now the face of BBC One's primetime National Lottery show, Come and Have A Go. He lives in Camden Town with a cat called Gloria and a little mongrel called Valerie.
