Second instalment of Welch for Pan Mac

Second instalment of Welch for Pan Mac

Pan Macmillan has acquired a second instalment in the autobiography of "Loose Women" panelist and "Celebrity Big Brother" winner Denise Welch, with plans to publish this autumn.

Editorial director Ingrid Connell acquired world rights directly from the author in the second book, Starting Over, which follows on from Pulling Myself Together, with a 13th September publication date.

In the new book, Welch will write about the recent breakdown of her marriage to actor Tim Healy, and her life as a single parent. She will also take the reader behind the scenes on ITV1 programme "Dancing on Ice" and discuss her experience of winning "Celebrity Big Brother".

Connell said: "This new memoir is warm, funny and completely honest, just like Denise herself. Women everywhere will be inspired by a story that shows it is never too late to follow your heart."
