Gok Wan's Through Thick and Thin - book signing tour
Presenter recalls Leicester upbringing and 21 stone past
With his memoir Through Thick and Thin (you can surely see what he’s done there?), Mr Wan recalls his upbringing on a Leicester housing estate. His folks ran a Chinese restaurant which might have something to do with the fact that Gok bloomed to some 21 stone when he was a teenager. Find out how he conquered that as well as the bullying he suffered for being a young, gay Asian man.
