SINGER, WRITER AND PIONEER OF THE LOCKDOWN KITCHEN DISCO, SOPHIE ELLIS-BEXTOR REFLECTS CANDIDLY ON HER LIFE

'This book is absolutely beautiful' - Zoe Ball, Radio 2

SOPHIE ELLIS-BEXTOR - SINGER, WRITER AND PIONEER OF THE LOCKDOWN KITCHEN DISCO, REFLECTS CANDIDLY ON LIFE, LOVE AND RELATIONSHIPS.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor's kitchen discos became a source of escapism, catharsis and sequined joy for a swathe of the population during lockdown. From knackered mothers and fed up fathers, to cooped up partiers with nowhere to go, Sophie's gloriously chaotic Friday kitchen performances have cheered and revived us.

Now Sophie is bringing that same mixture of down to earth candour and optimistic sparkle to her autobiography.


In SPINNING PLATES Sophie writes openly and very frankly about her life. From a childhood flogging Blue Peter badges in the playground to joining Theaudience straight from school, to finding love after a dark and troubled relationship, and becoming mother to five boys, Sophie pulls no punches in her autobiography.

By choosing to speak so openly on issues close to her heart, Sophie invites us all to join the conversation and bring those trickier subjects out of the shadows and into the light.

Covering relationships, body image, good-enough parenting, the highs - and the lows - of competing on Strictly Come Dancing - Sophie writes about the things that take on greater and lesser importance as life becomes more complicated. This is a book about respecting and learning from our mistakes and experiences and not being afraid to smash a few plates for the sake of what we actually need, want and value.

Honest, heartfelt and highly entertaining.

About the Author

Sophie Ellis-Bextor shot to fame as a vocalist on Spiller's huge number one single, 'Groovejet' and with her worldwide smash hit, 'Murder on the Dancefloor'.

Her debut solo album, 'Read My Lips', was released in 2001 and sold more than 2 million copies worldwide. Her subsequent album releases include 'Shoot from the Hip' (2003), 'Trip the Light Fantastic' (2007) and 'Make a Scene' (2011). In 2014, Sophie released her album 'Wanderlust' on her own label EBGB's, which was co-written and produced by Ed Harcourt. It was a critical and commercial success spending 3 weeks in the UK top 10 and selling over 100,000 copies.

Sophie followed this with 2016's 'Familia'. In 2019, with Ed Harcourt as Producer and Amy Langley (of Dirty Pretty Strings) arranging, Sophie released orchestrated versions of all her hits with her orchestral greatest hits album 'The Song Diaries'.

In 2020 and 2021, her Kitchen Discos, performed at home during lockdown with her five sons and recorded by her husband, musician Richard Jones, were watched and enjoyed by millions around the world. Following the performances, she released 'Songs From The Kitchen Disco', bringing together Sophie's hits with many other songs from her phenomenally successful lockdown Kitchen Disco performances, garnering further critical acclaim and another top 10 UK album chart position.
