Liverpool singer Ray Quinn will release a tell-all book about the ups and downs of his career

 

He may only be 26, but Ray Quinn has certainly crammed a lot into his career.

Since getting his big break playing Anthony Murray in Brookside at the tender age of 10, he has built up a CV so impressive it could rival someone twice his age.

And now the singer, whose latest single will raise cash for Parkinson’s UK, exclusively reveals he is about to pen his life story.

The tell-all book, in which he will trace his path from child star to his current life as a dad, will take a look at the highs and the lows of his career.

But it won’t be an autobiography as such, as that would be pompous, according to Ray.

“I hate it when people who are only about 19 bring a book out and call it an autobiography,” he explains. “I’m too young for that. The book will be the story of how it all began, where it all began, the ups and the downs, and where I am now.

“It will start with me living in a two-up-two-down in Knotty Ash and starting out in the dance world and travelling the world.”

The former child ballroom champion later went on to show off his singing talents on The X Factor and finished second to Leona Lewis in 2006.

Since then he’s had a platinum selling solo album and carved out a successful career in the West End, landing the role of Danny in Grease.

He won ITV’s Dancing On Ice in 2009, and went on to be named the Dancing On Ice Champion of Champions in the final ever series in 2014.

Ray, who has been back in the studio recording, said: “We started writing the book a few months back, and it’s been weird going over old ground.

“It has centred me a lot. I’ve done a lot and I know a lot of people, so it’s been nice to reminisce, there’s been some amazing times.

“There’s been ups and downs and there were people who doubted me. It will go through the spectrum, from the doubters to the people who were positive and stood by me.”

And Ray said it will be something his fans in Liverpool will particularly enjoy reading.

Says Ray: “I’m just going to be honest. It will include words like ‘cool’, ‘Scouse’ and ‘boss’, I want it to be as real as possible.”
