SOPHIE ELLIS-BEXTOR SINGER – SINGER, WRITER AND PIONEER OF THE LOCKDOWN KITCHEN DISCO, REFLECTS CANDIDLY ON HER LIFE

Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s kitchen discos became a source of much needed escapism, catharsis and sequined joy for a swathe of the population during lockdown. From knackered mothers and fed up fathers, to cooped up partiers with nowhere to go, Sophie’s gloriously chaotic Friday kitchen performances have cheered and revived us.

Now Sophie is bringing that same mixture of down to earth candour and optimistic sparkle to her first book.

In SPINNING PLATES Sophie writes openly and frankly about her life, from music to men to motherhood. From a childhood flogging Blue Peter badges in the playground to joining Theaudience straight from school, to finding love after a dark and troubled relationship, and becoming mother to five boys, Sophie pulls no punches in her autobiography.

Covering relationships, good-enough parenting, the importance of delusion and dancing, Sophie writes about the things that take on greater importance as life becomes more complicated. This is a book about respecting and learning from our mistakes and experiences and not being afraid to smash a few plates for the sake of what we actually need, want and value.

By choosing to speak so openly on issues close to her heart, Sophie invites us all to join the conversation and bring those trickier subjects out of the shadows and into the light.

Honest, heartfelt and highly entertaining.
