Veteran broadcaster Terry Wogan is adding another string to his bow and releasing his fiction debut - an as yet untitled collection of short stories.

The Limerick man, who attracted an audience in the UK of more than eight million to his Radio 2 show, became one of Britain's most popular broadcasters in a long career that saw him present a hugely successful TV chat show as well as the Eurovision Song Contest for many years.

Fan

Trisha Jackson, editorial director at Pan Macmillan, said: "I've been a huge fan of Terry's for many years and these incredibly well-observed stories convey the warmth and humour the British public associate with him. Terry is undoubtedly one of the UK's best-loved personalities."

Mr Wogan, who continues to host TV charity extravaganza Children in Need, said: "I'm delighted to follow the merry, merry pipes of Pan."

He has written several books including volumes of memoirs called Is It Me? and Mustn't Grumble.

The new book will be published in autumn.
