Michael Joseph has acquired world rights to a book by Chris and Rosie Ramsey, hosts of podcast “Sh**ged. Married. Annoyed”.
World rights were acquired by Michael Joseph publisher Charlotte Hardman from Richard Allen-Turner, Lee Hammerman and Katie McKay at Avalon Management. Sh**ged. Married. Annoyed will be published on 3rd September 2020.
"Following the success of their hit podcast ‘Sh**ged. Married. Annoyed’, the Ramsey’s have created a relatable guide that explores the highs and lows of dating, relationships, marriage and everything in between. This book will have readers crying with laughter and nodding along in solidarity," the publisher said.
Chris and Rosie Ramsey said: "We have been absolutely blown away by the response to our podcast. We record it in our kitchen and just talk about whatever is on our minds at the time, it takes no time or effort at all to do, so we thought we would make the entire process more difficult by doing a book as well! Expect more stories, more beefs, more of our take on life, relationships and rude stuff. Neither of us has ever really wanted to write a book, and we are basically only doing it to fill out Rosie’s CV. She’s now got two jobs guys! Podcaster AND author."
Hardman said: "Like the millions of other people who have downloaded ‘Sh*gged. Married. Annoyed’, I’ve fallen in love with the hilariously relatable and honest way that Chris and Rosie talk about relationships. This book is the kind of conversation I have with my friends over a bottle of wine about the many gripes we all have about our other halves and I am certain that it will do for relationships what brilliant bestselling books like The Unmumsy Mum, Hurrah for Gin and Why Mummy Drinks did for parenting. I’m so excited to be working with such an incredibly talented, downright hilarious and genuinely lovely couple."
