They say everyone today wants to be a celebrity. Certainly, we’re all happy to watch them. From reality television and talent shows to tabloid splashes and gossip magazines, the road to modern fame is littered with the hopeful, the misguided, and, occasionally, the downright cynical. It’s often a tale of rags to riches and then back to rags again. So why can’t we stop looking? And who exactly buys the T-shirt, wears the perfume, visits the salon?

In this witty and insightful tour of the underbelly of the celebrity world, LBC’s Steve Allen takes us by the hand and leads us through the highs and lows of life as a modern-day ‘sleb’ – why they’re there, and what we’ve all done to deserve this. Required reading for watchers and wannabes alike, this is your essential guide to one of the most bonkers aspects of modern Britain.

Further titles in collaboration with LBC include The Dumbing Down of Britain, It’s Politics... But Not As We Know It, Loathe Thy Neighbour, and The NHS: Things That Need to Be Said.
