Tony Robinson is writing his memoirs

Sir Tony Robinson, known to millions for his role as Baldrick in Blackadder, is writing his memoirs.

The book will be titled No Cunning Plan: The Auobiography by Tony Robinson and will chart his career from his first stage role as a boy in Oliver! through to Blackadder, Maid Marion and Her Merry Men, Time Team and The Worst Jobs in History.

The “self-deprecating” book is expected to be “packed full of incident and insight”, one such incident including Robinson coping “manfully” when locked naked outside a theatre in Lincoln during the live tour of comedy series Who Dares Wins.

He will also write about failing to impress Liza Minnelli and being pushed into a London dock by John Wayne.

The book will be published in the UK in September.

Robinson said: “Fifty-seven years as an actor and writer; it’s about time I told my story in my own words! Of course I’ll rip the lid off ‘Blackadder’ and ‘Time Team’, but there’s so much more that people don’t know.

I want my readers to be entertained, but I also hope when they finish the book, they’ll say, “Blimey! He didn’t really do that, did he?”’
