The best celebrity books of 2019

Famous people are just like you and me. Well, except that they live lives of glory, guestlists and fan mail while you ride the bus to work and pay for your own haircuts. If only there were a way of leaping over the velvet rope into their gilded worlds to poke about and learn what makes them tick... 

It can be a roll of the dice, picking up a celebrity memoir. Some are bad. Many are boring. But done well, they can be a thrilling glimpse into someone you admire, a lesson in the secrets of success and a way of blurring the boundaries between their world and ours. Sometimes, just sometimes, they are just downright hilarious.

Without further ado, here is a selection of the best celebrity books written in 2019.
