The definitive autobiography from the nation's best-loved broadcaster.

Written in the style familiar to his millions of listeners, rich with warmth and irony, Mustn't Grumble is Terry's definitive autobiography. Not only does he introduce the reader to his life in Ireland, his chain-smoking maiden aunts, his quick-witted mother and hard-working father and the (not so) Christian Fathers who tried to knock his hands off, he explains how he managed to avoid a hard day's work from childhood to knighthood, and entertained a few million people along the way.

Terry talks in full about his past 35 years with the BBC: his hugely popular Radio 2 show, his TV shows Wogan (Now & Then and Blankety Blank, the Eurovision Song Contest, working on the BBC's Children in Need programmes, and where he learnt to breakdance so brilliantly.

Mustn't Grumble
is fresh, honest and a must-read for any fan of this extraordinary TV and Radio figure.

Terry is only available for a small number of interviews due to his TV and radio commitments but he has of course been plugging his book relentlessly on his own RADIO 2 show. Interview with Terry in MAIL ON SUNDAY's YOU magazine for 'In a Taxi With...' (17 June) Interview with Terry in DAILY TELEGRAPH Saturday magazine for 'Flashback'. Diary story in DAILY MAIL on 6 June.

Terry Wogan was born in Limerick and educated at Crescent College. After leaving college Terry went into banking, and five years later joined Radio Telefis Eirann as a newsreader/announcer. Moving to light entertainment as a disc jockey and host of TV quiz and variety shows, in 1969 Terry stood in for BBC Radio's Jimmy Young and later that year was given his own daily shows on BBC Radio 1 and 2. In 1972 he took over the prestigious morning show slot and it's been downhill since then. Terry's extensive television credits include his live chat show series WOGAN, SONGS FOR EUROPE, THE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST, COME DANCING and BLANKETY BLANK, to name but a few. In 1993 Terry rejoined BBC Radio 2 to present WAKE UP TO WOGAN the most listened to breakfast show in the UK. In a moment of weakness Her Majesty the Queen honoured him with a knighthood in 2005. He was married to the sainted Lady Helen, the present Mrs Wogan, and has two sons and a daughter.
