They say you can always remember where you where when pivotal moments happen, such as losing your virginity or Elvis dying. Let me add another to the list- the moment I sang a diet to the the "Macarena" with Timmy Mallett, live to millions of people...'Sacked from his high-profile job as a national newspaper editor, Piers Morgan dived helplessly into the world of celebrity. But even twenty years of commenting on the lives of the rich and famous couldn't prepare him for the extraordinary world he uncovered...A riveting, scandelous and brutally honest account of one man's quest for celebrity, Don't You Know Who I Am? lifts the lid on the egos and outrageous behaviour of everyone from Paris Hilton to Cherie Blair, Kate Moss to the legend that is the Hoff.
Piers Morgan was born in 1965. He studied journalism at Harlow College, starting his career in local newspapers and going on to edit his own showbiz column, Bizarre for the Sun. Rupert Murdoch made him Editor of the News of the World in January 1994 and two years later he was headhunted to edit The Mirror, staying there until 2004. He left following a decision to publish photos of British soldiers apparently abusing Iraqi prisoners of war. He has presented two series of Tabloid Tales for BBC2, You Can't Fire Me, I'm Famous, the C4 current affairs show Morgan and Platell, and recently shot to fame in the US as a judge on the top rated America's Got Talent.
