Lucy Beaumont writes her 'mumoirs'

First book out this autumn

 Lucy Beaumont is writing her first book, a ‘mumoir’ due out this autumn.

Mummy ... Can I Stand On Your Head?: Diary Of A First Time Mum will follow the comedian and husband Jon Richardson as they ‘navigate Lucy's raging pregnancy hormones and baulk at pram prices together’.

The couple's daughter, Elsie Louise, will be four when the book- which publisher Monoray likens  to bestsellers such as Gill Simms’ Why Mummy Drinks and Katy Kirby’s Hurrah For Gin! -  comes out in September.

Their blurb says: ‘Mums everywhere will recognise the madness of it all. Like when Lucy was hospitalised with indigestion in her third trimester (blame the burrito), or when she was *this close* to slapping her hypo-birthing instructor. Or the efforts she made to infiltrate the local mums’ social groups and when she embarrassingly forgot her own new-born baby's name!’.

Beaumont’s book deal follows the success of Meet The Richardsons, which offers a fictionalised version of her married life. It was one of Dave's most-watched shows last year, and a second series is in the pipeline.

She is not the only comedian contributing to the increasingly popular 'mumoir' genre this year, as Ellie Taylor’s My Child And Other Mistakes is due out in July. (Order)

Mummy ... Can I Stand On Your Head? will be published on September  30. Place an advance order here.
