I was browsing through the 23 March 2007 issue of The Bookseller, kindly passed on to me by a friendly independent bookseller, when I came across a story by Katherine Rushton and Alison Bone headed "Celebs join the Christmas scrum".

It seems that in spite of the glut of celeb titles last Christmas, with some publishers losing serious money, it is once again this year going to be celebrity-studded Christmas.

Here are some of those you can expect from British publishers:

Charlotte Church, Freddie Flintoff (his third title), Bobby Charlton, Helen Mirren, Fidel Castro (!), Eric Clapton, Richard Attenborough, Ozzy Osbourne, Ranulph Fiennes, Ian Botham, Jackie Stewart, Monty Panesar and Jason Donovan.
