By Steve Brookstein
It used to be the stuff desires have been made up of. It grew to become the final word nightmare. Being the 1st winner of the X consider 2004, Steve Brookstein must have all of it. as a substitute, he tells a narrative of a guy bought down the river through his personal checklist label as they championed the runner-up G4 and compelled him into an album of canopy songs. this is often the tale of what particularly occurred from vicious own assaults by way of Sharon Osborne and Louis Walsh to threats from Max Clifford approximately going public. A decade on, and Max Clifford is inside of and critically discredited. So, is Andy Coulson, an Editor who ran a few of the unfaithful tales approximately Steve. He has been dubbed a pub singer, a faux, a flop and sour because the narrative that all started at the convey grew to become followed by way of newshounds who notion he was once reasonable online game, often reviewing gigs that they hadn't been too or inventing charges he hadn't stated, and constantly regulated by way of a toothless Press court cases fee. Ten years on Steve is now in a position to elevate the lid at the convey itself and examine for the 1st time precisely what Max Clifford stated whilst he rang to claim, "Talk to the clicking and we will bury you."
