CATHY HYTNER

Cathy Hytner, model and actress, was the first ‘word girl’ working with Richard Whitley on the TV series Countdown (Carol Voderman back then was on just numbers). From an impoverished Manchester upbringing to TV exposure and befriending George Best Is a mighty long road before she gave it all up to go to University. Now socially isolating in Lockdown Britain, she’s used the time to write a pithy and fascinating autobiographical exposé of the world of television in the Seventies and Eighties and the price paid by young women to survive in it.

Out soon.
