Tess Daly's debut novel

Tess Daly has expanded her talent's to writing. Her debut novel, The Camera Never Lies, is inspired by her real-life in television.

The story of a former model-turned-breakfast TV presenter who quickly finds that the drama behind the scenes far eclipses anything that goes on in front of the camera. It is a glamorous and hilarious read about an ordinary girl in an extraordinary world who is looking for love and fame.

Tess says: "I have experienced first hand the hilarious and often outrageous goings on in the worlds of television and fashion. My novel reflects this and is fast-paced and funny and filled with glamour and glitz."

After landing the job of a lifetime as a fashion reporter on the nation's favourite breakfast television programme, Rise and Shine, Britt Baxter is invited to all the right parties, and appears in all the right magazines. Soon the press and the public can't get enough of her. Britt is 'the next big thing'. But then a story breaks. Britt has been betrayed. And she no longer knows who she can trust.The Camera Never Lies will keep you hooked as Britt’s funny, poignant and all-too-believable story plays out against a backdrop of glamour, ambition and deception.

Tess Daly worked as a model for ten years before she made her first television presenter appearance on The Big Breakfast in 2000. She has gone on to present numerous shows including nine series of the award winning Strictly Come Dancing. Tess writes a weekly fashion column for the Mirror and has her own Daly Beauty range.

The Camera Never Lies is her debut novel following publication of The Baby Diaries in 2010 which documents her journey through motherhood. Tess is mum to two daughters Phoebe and Amber.


The Camera Never Lies (£12.99)  is  released 13th October 2011 (Hodder & Stoughton Hardback)
