All month, we've been searching for the next JK Rowling or EL James in our Be A Bestseller competition.
Over 4000 wannabe authors applied sending in the first 3,000 words of their novel. Our team sifted through the applications ending up at today's five finalists.
And it's an incredible prize. The winner will receive a six-month place on the Curtis Brown creative writing course and also representation for that novel with Curtis Brown.

Should we do away with gender specific toys? Perhaps you are a parent who doesn't think it's right to buy their son a doll or their daughter a toy truck?
Over 4,000 people applied to This Morning's Be A Best Seller competition, all budding authors and hoping for the chance to win a place on a creative writing course and publisher representation for their novel. Today we meet the last two of our finalists, and first up it's Caroline Tudor, who has written The Replacements.
To celebrate Book Month, This Morning launched its first-ever book competition to search for a brand new name in novel writing. On 4 November, a panel of judges including award-winning Irish novelist Marian Keyes, presenter and actress Caroline Quentin and agent and joint CEO of Curtis Brown Jonny Geller were given the task of finding a writing superstar in the making.
Over the past few weeks thousands of entrants sent in their works in the hopes of winning the grand prize, a six-month writing course and representation by award-winning literary agency Curtis Brown.
Throughout the week we have been hearing from some of the finalists and today we have all five finalists together for the first time. By the end of the show the winner and two runners up will be announced, and a new literary star will be born!
Tomorrow is Black Friday, the day when many of us try to grab a Christmas bargain, but can some toys be damaging to our children? A big supermarket removed signage claiming a superhero alarm clock was a gift for a boy, after a complaint from a seven-year-old girl. But should we worry about a toy being targeted to a gender?
Elizabeth Kesses believes that a parent's toy choice can seriously affect a child's confidence. However, Laverne Antrobus argues that toys would only be damaging if they were a child's only influence.

As part of our celebration of Book Month, we wanted to find out what novels inspire some of our best-loved stars. Actress Emilia Fox told us about her favourite read Rebecca, Anthony Horowitz took us on a tour of Sherlock Holmes' London town and impressionist Jon Culshaw revealed why Charles Dickens has made such an impression on him.
Today actress Caroline Quentin takes a stroll through Hardy country to explore her favourite book Tess of the D'Urbervilles.
It's a book that reminds Phillip of his native Cornwall, and when he describes it to us we can see why.
So which novel did Schofe pick as his favourite of all time? Watch the video to find out.
