How your St Helens Star made it on to the cover of Becoming Johnny Vegas
11:00am Thursday 3rd October 2013 in News
THE back cover of Becoming Johnny Vegas features a super plug for your Star.
The image features a mock front page of the St Helens Star – including a fresh faced Michael Pennington - which was actually put together as a project in his schooldays, long before Johnny was born.
“I was even a big head back then,” he joked.
Michael Pennington is the real name of the Thatto Heath comedian and director.
St Helens Star deputy editor Andrew Kilmurray said: "The publisher Harper Collins had contacted us to ask could they use some press clippings in the autobiography - but it was a pleasant surprise to pick up a copy on the book shelves and find the Star's masthead had made it on to the cover."
