Britain’s Queen of Clean tells the harrowing story of the shocking and brutal abuse she suffered as a child, which she has now overcome. Read by the author.
For Kim Woodburn finding fame in her 60s in the smash hit television series How Clean is Your House? with fellow dust-buster Aggie Mackenzie is like living a fairytale.
Often she has simply wished that she had never been born, for Kim has overcome horrific emotional and physical abuse both at the hands of her alcoholic mother and her father.
In her brave and revealing story Kim’s memories of growing up are not of love and cuddles, but of beatings and random cruelty. Shuttled between the brutal houses of her warring parents, a succession of miserable children’s homes and a grim convent – Kim’s past has cast a long shadow over her life.
But just before her sixteenth birthday she finally made her escape. It has taken decades of hard work, and a wonderfully happy marriage to conquer depression but now she has emerged unbowed and unbeaten as Britain’s Queen of Clean.
