Jim Davidson

Close to the Edge
  • Close to the Edge

  • 'People will be surprised by the honesty of this book. There will be no holds barred' Jim Davidson. Somehow the last decade saw Jim Davidson transformed from foul-mouthed stand-up comic to being the face of BBC light entertainment, Chairman of the British Forces Foundation and close friend of Prince Charles. Close To The Edge details this remarkable change in a fresh and deeply intimate style. Jim comes clean about himself, his actions and his motives. From the times he spent in the rehabilitation clinic to the full story of the break up of his four marriages, he re-evaluates his life in a critical and self-aware manner - making Close to The Edge an entertaining and unusually powerful autobiography.

Jim Davidson was born in 1953, the youngest of five children and was christened Cameron. Having been married 4 times, Jim is currently single and lives in Surrey. His career was launched in 1976 when he won New Faces. In 1979 the Jim Davidson Show hit our screens and ran for 5 years. Success continued throughout the '80s and in the '90s he has become the face of BBC light entertainment, presenting Big Break and taking over from Bruce Forsyth on the Generation Game.
