Black Country BGT star releases debut book

Black Country BGT finalist, Eva Abley has released a new book charting the highs and lows of living with Cerebral Palsy.

The 14 year-old comedian won the hearts of millions when she stormed into the final of Britain’s Got Talent in 2022. Her new book, 'The Good, The Bad and the Wobbly' is a remarkable story of Eva's life to date.

On stage, she was simply irrepressible – a cheeky teenage comic sensation who made light of her disability and wowed all of the Britain’s Got Talent judges. But behind the glitz and glamour, things weren’t always quite so straightforward, and there were many dark moments too.

In this, her early years autobiography, Eva has written a book she says will amuse, amaze and shock in equal measure. Brummie funny-man, Jasper Carrot OBE was one of the first to read the book, and called it “rare, dignified and extremely funny".

Eva is donating all of the profits from sales of her autobiography, which has been released during Cerebral Palsy Awareness month, to Birmingham Children’s Hospital, who have cared for her “so brilliantly.”

Since Britain's Got Talent, Eva has gone on to win a number of accolades including a prestigious Pride of Birmingham Award. She was recently a co-winner of ‘Wolverhampton Young Citizen of the Year' and has had her own documentary made by the BBC.
