Description

As wrestling superstar ‘Big Daddy’, Shirley Crabtree became a larger-than-life national icon in the halcyon days of televised wrestling. A ‘People’s Champion’ in a glittery cape, he put bums on seats, appeared in comics and on records and once attracted a TV audience of 18 million. But in private the ageing Daddy’s life was tinged with tragedy.

About the author

Ryan Danes was born in Plymouth in 1975, just as Big Daddy was bursting on to the scene and out of his leotard, and he considers the man a childhood hero. Since then Ryan has had various publishers, BAFTA award-winning directors and authors in head-locks and wedgies as he's tried to sell his work, until somebody finally submitted to his demands.
