    For forty years we've been watching Phillip - from children's TV to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat and This Morning - but what is life like behind the scenes and who is he when the camera is off?

    In Life's What You Make It Phillip tells us his secrets, whisking us from an idyllic Cornwall childhood via pestering the BBC for a job to hanging out with stars of stage and screen.

    Packed with stories he's never told, here's all the excitement of live TV, the mayhem and mistakes, the friendships with beloved co-stars and the sadness of onscreen breakups.

    Above all, it's the wonderful tale of how life - like our favourite shows - is truly and always what you make it.
