Victoria Wood’s Official Biography in the Works

Trapeze has won the right to publish an official biography of the late Victoria Wood, seeing off nine other publishing houses. The book will be written by journalist Jasper Rees with ‘the exclusive authority and full co-operation of Victoria Wood’s estate.’ according to The Bookseller.

Chris Foote Wood, older brother to the comedian has already released a book about Victoria’s childhood, however, her children and former husband distanced themselves from it and the book was postponed for a rewrite as the writer wished to put less emphasis on Victoria’s early issues with her weight.

The book is due for release in October 2020.
