Olly Murs may have finished in second place on television's The X Factor in 2009, but the heartthrob singer has since become one of British pop's winners. The cheeky chappie with the tight trousers and the porkpie hat has sold out concert tours, released bestselling albums and enjoyed a string of hits including 'Please Don't Let Me Go' and 'Heart Skips a Beat'. A regular in the charts and in the gossip columns, Olly is regarded by many as a possible successor to icons like Robbie Williams and Will Young. But not content with his triumphs as a singer, he has also become a TV fixture. After becoming the co-host of The Xtra Factor, he graduated to his own series, Olly: Life on Murs, in 2012. Olly Murs: The Biography follows his journey from suburbia to stardom and beyond. It explores how a seemingly ordinary and grounded Essex boy was determined to follow his dream - and was strong and shrewd enough to survive the heady world of entertainment. Along the way, we see how his promising first career as a semi-pro footballer was halted and we discover how he deals with the pros and cons of a celebrity lifestyle. This is a must-read for any music fan.

Gary Barlow is one of the most successful British musicians and songwriters of all time, but fifteen years ago, as he himself admits, he hit rock bottom - he was out of shape, out of work and depressed. Faced with an underperforming solo career, tireless media taunts and the other cruel twists of fate, Gary turned to food. For nine years, he struggled with his weight and went on every diet imaginable before eventually asking a doctor what the 'cure' for obesity was. That was when he realised that he would have to change his life dramatically. So how did he go from an obese, out-of-work pop star to becoming a hugely successful superstar of music and TV, as well an accomplished musical songwriter and producer who is full of vitality, fitter, happier and more successful than ever before? In this extraordinarily honest memoir, Gary tells of his journey back to professional success, as well as mental and physical health. A Better Me is a remarkably frank account of Gary's life as he battled with his demons, endured personal tragedy, and staged one of the most thrilling professional comebacks in decades. In his warm, witty and authentic voice, Gary recounts his story with compelling insight, captivating sincerity and a human side that people rarely see. From returning with a critically and commercially successful Take That and reigniting his own legendary songwriting career, going beyond recorded music to forge success on TV with The X Factor and Let It Shine, to overcoming his weight problems and crippling obsession with food, this is the story of how Gary found balance in both his personal and professional life. Here is one of the UK's most beloved pop stars, more open, honest and raw than ever before.

Take That were the original British boy band. They sold out arenas in less time than it took to play one of their chart-topping singles. Gary Barlow was the band's gifted front man who not only wrote hits such as 'Pray' and 'A Million Love Songs' but sang them too. Then the band quit at the very height of their fame. Here Gary reveals for the first time his ride on the rollercoaster of fame, the truth behind the rumours of the band's feuding and his fall-out with Robbie, and how he sank into depression only to rise again in one of pop's greatest comebacks: the record-breaking Take That reunion tour. Candid, confident and down-to-earth, Gary is definitely back for good.
