More About This Title Where Am I? My Autobiography


When Phil Tufnell hung up his cricket boots back in 2003, little did he know the dramatic direction his professional life would take next. Yet since being crowned "King of the Jungle" in I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, the ex-England spin bowler has never looked back and is now a much loved television and radio presenter. Cricket's dressing-room clown is now broadcasting's joker in the pack. Whether it's dining on kangaroo testicles on I'm a Celebrity, displaying his Fleckerl in the ballroom on Strictly Come Dancing, keeping a straight face while presenting a short item on the history of whistles for The One Show, causing weekly mayhem for the long-suffering host Sue Barker on A Question of Sport, or simply chewing the fat about his beloved cricket on Radio 4's Test Match Special, millions and millions enjoy Tuffers' lust for life and endearing sense of humor, much of it self-deprecating. In What Happened?, Phil gamely tries to make sense of the wonderful rollercoaster he has been riding these last dozen years, delighting fans with a treasure trove of wonderful stories about the places he has been, the people he has met, the "things" he has been asked to do, but—most of all—the sheer enormous joy he has had doing it all.


Phil Tufnell played 42 Test matches and 20 One-Day Internationals for England between 1990 and 1997. Following retirement in 2002, Tufnell became a hugely popular TV personality. He was the winner of ITV1's I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here in 2003, and enjoyed a long run in BBC1's Strictly Come Dancing in 2009. Current broadcasting commitments include being team captain on BBC1's A Question of Sport and regular features on BBC1's The One Show. He remains a star turn on Radio 4's iconic Test Match Special show.
