In December 2014 Caroline Flack danced her way into the nation’s hearts when she raised the BBC’s coveted Strictly Come Dancing Glitterball. Known for her throaty laugh, edgy humour and quick-fire wit, showcased on some of Britain’s most popular spin-off shows, 2015 saw her thrust into the mainstream, hosting ITV’s flagship talent show, The X Factor, with Olly Murs.
In Storm in a C Cup, Caroline reveals the laughter and pain behind the TV persona, from a sheltered Norfolk childhood shared with her twin sister, through her madcap student days, to the challenging career ladder leading to eventual TV success, not forgetting its dark shadow, when intrusive media attention turned the dream into a nightmare.

Free now: Losers Like Us: Redefining Discipleship after Epic Failure – Non-fiction from a faith-based publisher
Always confirm price before purchase. Many free and reduced books are offered for a limited time only.
In 2008, after seven years of preparation, Daniel Hochhalter permanently failed his PhD, leaving him with no hope of gaining the qualifications needed for his desired career. Then he lost his job. Devastated and in crisis, with no Plan B and no clue how to redeem his future, he looked to the twelve disciples and discovered that–despite their gaping faults and sins–God still loved them and used them to change the world.
With fresh warmth and wisdom, ample hope and humor, Losers Like Us skillfully intertwines Dan’s own story with theirs to show how our worst mistakes and greatest failures bring us to a place of teachableness, egolessness, brokenness, and empathy–the very qualifications required to receive God’s love and grace, and to manifest his kingdom on earth.
