What others think of Patience Bradley's book Where Do You Go To My Lovely!

“It was one of the joys of my life to work with Patience on compiling this book.  She is genuinely funny, kind and beautiful.  My only problem was in deciding which stories to include, as she has such a fund of entertaining, emotional and uplifting stories about her life both on and off the catwalk.”

Jane E. M. Crosbie

Editor of Where Do You Go To My Lovely

"Patience Bradley has had a life that people only dream of.  From rubbing shoulders with celebrities in the high echelons of London society life.
"But there was a darker side to the industry, behind the glitz and glamour Patience was a young woman trying to find her way in the world."

Tina Calder

“Patience Bradley has lived the celebrity lifestyle despite a traumatic childhood which could have left her bitter.  However, ultimately her life story is inspiring and one about survival and finding long-lasting love.  She is a wonderful woman.”

“When I decided to write this memoir I imagined that it was a chat with a friend over a coffee.
These are the tales and stories from back stage and the limelight.
I was very fortunate to mingle and get to know many celebrities, but that work came at a cost to my health.”

Suddenly there was the most fantastic, blood-curdling shriek and I glanced round just in time to see the security person leaping backwards away from Jane's open bag.

Chapter 5 |

Sex, drugs and rock & roll

We were all young, many of us were actresses, dancers or models and the flats were always full of people.

Chapter 6 |


One night I arrived to find a crowd of photographers and journalists camped on the pavement outside the door.

Ali was the perfect gentleman and, other than a chaste kiss on the cheek at the end of the night, never made any sort of advance towards me.
