– Comedienne Francesca on why exactly she loves her job!
In her book What The **** Is Normal?, stand-up comedienne Francesca Martinez reveals how she defied expectations after her parents were told that she would never lead a normal life, following her diagnosis with cerebral palsy at the age of two.
After a tough time at high school, Francesca says she felt 'saved' when she won a part in Grange Hill aged 14. Now, as an adult with a successful television career, she wants her disability to be accepted rather than discriminated against.
What the **** is Normal by Francesca Martinez is out now.
