TELEVISION favourite Richard Madeley has visited Suffolk to promote his new book Fathers and Sons.

Apart from working tirelessly with wife Judy Finnegan on their show Richard and Judy he has found the time to pen the story of love and betrayal played over several generations of his own family.

Complete with family photos the book charts the rifts created during an earlier generation of Madeleys and their effect on subsequent sons through history and eventually on the TV personality himself.

Madeley said: “It is not misery lit and it's not autobiography - there are a lot of those out at the moment. It is a family saga, which started in 1907.

“It is a century seen through the eyes of my grandfather, father, me, my stepsons and my son. It tells the story of great hardships, bad times and good.

“It is about how the sins of the father are passed on to the next generation and it is up to the sons of those fathers to deal with it. It is how the Madeley boys did that from 1907 to the present day.”
