Show synopsis 'Who does she think she is?' is something Martine has heard people say about her all her life. Born into the poorest and least-promising background and with only a loving mother's support to help her, Martine has dared to follow her dreams of stardom and has achieved more in her twenty-four years than most of those who turned their noses up at her achieve in a lifetime. It's a story that includes a life on the run from a violent father, drink, drugs and even an attempted murder that filled her childhood with fear; her early attempts at pop stardom and first loves, plus dates with Matt Goss and Mick Hucknall; her big break in EastEnders, and the shocking story of how she really came to leave the series. Martine's story ends with today's triumphs over the tragedies of her life: the number one and platinum-selling singles and album, the starring roles in a new television series, a feature film and in My Fair Lady at The National Theatre. The British public have taken Martine McCutcheon to their hearts - she is 'one of us' - and her life story is an inspiration to anyone born without any apparent advantages.
