Synopsis

In his heyday as a top television news broadcaster, Ed Mitchell interviewed high-profile politicians such as Margaret Thatcher, John Major and Tony Blair. He commanded a six-figure salary, travelled the world and had a seemingly perfect family life. But, behind the scenes, Ed was battling the demons of alcohol and debt which led ultimately to his homelessness. This is the astonishing true story of the newscaster who became known as the white-collar tramp. After he was sacked from his job at CNBC, his life began to spiral. Ed's marriage collapsed and he was eventually declared bankrupt. With nowhere to live, no job and not a penny to his name, he was forced to sleep rough on a bench in Brighton. Ed's story became headline news when a local reporter came across the astonishing tale of his dramatic fall from grace and within days, Ed was booked into Europe's most famous rehab centre, The Priory. In this stunningly candid book, Ed finally tells his whole, true story. He recalls hilarious anecdotes from his days as a news reporter, and with searing honesty says, 'I don't have any regrets, I don't blame and I don't sit around whinging.' His story gives an honest insight into the kind of problems that affect so many people and ultimately offers hope.
