Fatima Whitbread, MBE, world javelin champion, world record holder and twice Olympic medallist, has millions of new fans after surviving 20 days in the jungle on I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here. After her career as an athlete, the former BBC Sports Personality of the Year headed the Chafford Hundred elite runners club whose members included Linford Christie and Dame Kelly Holmes. The last woman standing on I'm a Celebrity cooked her way to total victory on the all-sport-champions' Come Dine with Me. Fatima has served as a school governor, is a qualified javelin coach and an excellent public speaker, and wants to help make the London Olympics a success.
She is writing the book with Adrianne Blue, a former Sunday Times correspondent and professional writer, who is the author of seven books published in 21 languages.
