Audiobook - Musicals, Marigolds & Me

Stage and screen star Paul Nicholas is set to release the audiobook of his anecdote-packed autobiography Musicals, Marigolds & Me on 26th June...

Press Release

Actor and singer Paul Nicholas, beloved star of 80s smash hit sitcom Just Good Friends, shows he has many facets to his famously twinkly persona in the brand new audiobook of his sensational autobiography Musicals, Marigolds & Me, recounting his colourful career as a pop singer (with Top 10 hits in the UK and America), film actor, musical theatre superstar, and hugely successful West End producer.

A Half a Million Pound Gamble

Listen as Paul recounts being at the vanguard of groundbreaking stage shows Hair, Jesus Christ Superstar and Cats. Not content to just star in such theatrical sensations, Paul staked half a million pounds on his next move, to produce his own - turning Grease and Saturday Night Fever into must-see West End hits.

He’s not the Messiah - he’s a very cheeky chappie!

Discover how a pint, a cigarette, and a nun became an unwitting part of Paul being unveiled as Jesus, in a stage show that changed everything.

The dream team: Paul teams up with David Bowie

Few can claim to have had David Bowie write them a pop song in a bid for chart stardom, but, as Paul describes in his audiobook, it didn’t quite pan out the way he’d hoped…

How do you solve a problem like a Green Card?

Irked by his lack of a US Green Card, Paul recounts the solution: score a major hit on the US Billboard charts. Along the way Paul treats us to rubbing shoulders with The Who, The Bee Gees, The Beatles, Eric Clapton, and explains that legendary drummer Keith Moon was a big fan of Paul’s band before The Who became superstars themselves.


Wince as Paul recalls kissing a very attractive lady in front of her possessive and extremely agitated husband. All in a day’s work, as the lady was Paul’s romantic co-star in a film the husband was directing!

Audiences in the millions

Paul’s success in TV spans the decades as he talks us through many beloved shows including the record-breaking BAFTA-winning Just Good Friends, EastEnders, The Real Marigold Hotel and other favourites.

English eccentrics and an eight foot (edible) Jelly Baby

Paul’s observations on a startlingly varied career include priceless moments from working with the enfant terrible of British cinema, Ken Russell, through to performing with Screaming Lord Sutch, and commissioning an eight foot jelly baby that looked nothing like the celebrity it was supposedly modelled on.

“Stop laughing, dear boy”

Who said that to Paul? Find out as he relates many wonderful encounters with stars of stage and screen including John Travolta, Joan Collins, Sir Laurence Olivier, Sir John Gielgud, Larry Hagman, Clint Eastwood, Oliver Reed and not forgetting a flatshare with Denzil from Only Fools and Horses!

Paul, who recently appeared the reality show The Real Marigold On Tour, and who will be touring in the stage production of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (based on the hit film) this year, has packed his audiobook with decades of stories, insights, wry humour and gratitude for a career that’s still in full flow in this ideal beach listen for the summer.

MUSICALS, MARIGOLDS & ME will be available from 26th June, and is available to pre-order now on Amazon, Audible & iTunes
