Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Alison Bellamy has written a book about Leeds’s most famous son, revealing the secrets of the man behind the cigar, the bling and the big smile.
She was a friend of Jimmy Savile for many years and the last person to interview him before his death in October last year.
How’s About That, Then? - The Authorised Biography of Jimmy Savile was launched at the Queens Hotel in Leeds where his coffin was displayed in October and attracted over 5,000 people to pay their final respects.
Guests at the book launch included former lovers, friends and family members.
The book is also supporting two Leeds based charities, The Little Sisters of the Poor and Bethany’s Smile which raises money for Martin House Hospice, Boston Spa. £1 from each copy sold will be donated to the charities.
* How’s About That, Then? is published by Great Northern Books, priced £16.99.
