“Let me be Frank” Available to order now.

“Let me be Frank” picks up Franks life story from the end of the last book it’s been 12 years since Franks last book and a lot has happened.

Frank’s new book is the truthful and definitive account of the care he received after he was sectioned twice in the space of six weeks in 2012. Frank speaks openly about the treatment he received in Basildon Hospital and St Andrew’s and the failures that he believes he suffered at the hands of doctors.

But Frank came through his illness, has rebuilt his life and has and restored the relationship with his family after they made the decision to call in doctors against his wishes.

Frank tells of the new fight he has now embarked on to try and help people with conditions like the one he suffers from. He also tells of the heartbreak of recently losing his mum, who was a tower of strength in the darkest days. Frank’s book also sees him reflect on having to say goodbye to two of the people who had the biggest impact on his career: his idol and Muhammed Ali and beloved friend Harry Carpenter.

Let Me Be Frank is also an opportunity for Frank to reflect on his remarkable boxing career – 2017 is 35 years on from the day he first stepped in the ring. So the book revisits some of the highlights of Frank’s career.

Frank also speaks about his belief that boxing needs to do more to support fighters who develop mental health problems in the ring – and reveals how he is in the process of setting up a foundation to help use non-contact sport to rescue people from their illnesses.

Bruno The Movie

We are delighted that at last we have 2 projects that will be ensure Frank is on the screen big or small in the next couple of years.

 1 will be a factual story of Franks life that is being made during 2018 hopefully for realise 2019.

The other will be a drama based on Franks life no dates to start filming this this have actually been agreed.

Frank’s life is a storied one. He started boxing at the age of 11, and won the Amateur Boxing Championship at the tender age of 18… He was at the height of his career when the world’s eyes were on the ring. He fought Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis and beat Oliver McCall for the WBC Heavyweight Championship of the World.

It is perhaps the fight outside of the ring that has been his hardest battle and that is his battle with mental illness. In 2003 Frank was sectioned for the first time and diagnosed with Bipolar. Since then he has had to battle with his own mind, and it is a battle he is winning.

This film charts it all; from the very first time he put on his gloves, his World Title win, his section and everything in between. This feature film biopic looks at the rise, fall, and rise again of one of Britain’s most loved sports stars and personalities. Focusing on the day he was first sectioned, we will look back over his life and fall in love with him all over again…
