The rags-to-riches story of singing sensation Jane McDonald, who rose to fame as the headline singer aboard "The Galaxy" which featured in the hugely popular BBC TV series "The Cruise". Jane has since taken the UK by storm. She was the success story of 1998 and her list of achievements and her popularity has escalated since then. Born in the north of England, Jane spent 12 years performing in working men's clubs and singing in the chorus on various cruise ships. She was spotted by a BBC TV documentary team and became the star of "The Cruise" series (which was screened in 1998 and ended its 12 week run with an audience of 12 million viewers per episode). Jane became an overnight sensation. Jane takes the reader back to her childhood, the hard slog round the Northern club and pub circuit, the six years she spent on cruise liners, meeting her husband Henrik, giving up the singing career to be a stay-at-home wife, and finally her big break on "The Galaxy" and the filming of the fly-on-the-wall documentary "The Cruise" which catapulted Jane to stardom.
