Lipman to host BBC "My Story" show
08.01.10 | Katie Allen
Actress and comedian Maureen Lipman has been revealed as the fourth of the five presenters for the BBC's “My Story” real-life writing competition, in association with HC imprint HarperTrue.
Boyzone singer Ronan Keating, "The One Show" presenter Christine Bleakley and BBC News reader George Alagiah will also present, with the fifth presenter still to be confirmed.
Each presenter will front one episode of the show, which begins in the summer. Fifteen entrants' true life stories will feature in the series, to be judged by a literary panel. Five will have their stories, written with the aid of a ghost-writer, published by HarperTrue.
The competition has now closed for entrants.
