Theo Fennell is a legend. The King of Bling and jeweller to the stars (Elton John, Madonna and Lady Gaga among them) he is also, in Rory Bremner’s words, “wonderful company, endlessly kind, and the funniest raconteur I know”. Now he has written his autobiography, I fear for this boy, subtitled ‘some chapters of accidents’, which traces our hero’s chaotic and charmed life from Eton schoolboy to one-man-band (‘we fell out’) to alcoholic to society jeweller in a gloriously entertaining and moving romp. ‘I can’t recommend the ride highly enough’ (Stephen Fry). A total delight.
