The story behind the nation’s new darling – the former EMMERDALE and STRICTLY COME DANCING star, Lisa Riley.

Lisa Riley won the hearts of the nation as she danced for her life, now it’s time to read her life…

NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER is the inspirational and moving story of how a fairytale came true. From her beginnings in Bury, Lisa went on to become the darling of television and stage. But it was on STRICTLY COME DANCING that she wowed the nation with her energy, sparkle and never-ending enthusiasm.

This talented lass from Bury has, at last, brought a real woman’s figure to our screens and allowed women to say, ‘this is me: take it or leave it’.

Lisa’s message is clear: whatever size you are, and whatever life throws at you, be who you want to be and stay true to yourself!
