“The news that the former Baywatch star is to create two novels, titled Above the Waist and Below the Belt, might surprise some. Anderson’s ex-husband, Tommy Lee, helped instigate the signing by introducing her to Ms Curr with his recommendation. Lee is a published author too: he has written an autobiography called An Illustrated Man (the Mötley Crüe drummer is heavily tattooed).

But can she write?
“It is largely irrelevant. Anderson will have a ghost-writer, following the precedent set by the supermodel Naomi Campbell in 1994 with “her” novel Swan, which was actually written by Caroline Upcher. Anderson will supply plot, characters, and her “voice”.”
