While we’ve watched Irene’s life play out on the popular soap, Lynne has kept her personal life relatively private.

That’s all about to change however, because Lynne is set to pull the lid on moments from her childhood to her career, and everything in between, in a newly announced memoir book called ‘Acting Up’.

“So I have written a book! ‘Acting Up’,” Lynne announced via Instagram.

“Out November and I am so excited! Pre orders are open NOW!”

The actress also uploaded a video of herself to make the announcement, and said: “Last year in lockdown while all of you were learning how to bake… I have written a cheeky little memoirs book.”

“It’s called ‘Acting Up’ and it’s just a little bit about my life from when I was very, very young to now,” she explained.

‘Acting Up’ will be released on November 2 this year, published by Echo Publishing, with Lynne revealing the cover with her fans.

According to Allen & Unwin’s website, ‘Acting Up: Me, Myself & Irene’ is a “warm, hilarious and intimate look inside the life of one of Australia’s living TV legends”.

“With humour, honesty and self-deprecating charm, one of Australia’s best known TV actresses lifts the lid on life – both on-screen and off.”

The book’s description also notes that Lynne’s story will include an Aussie childhood full of “fad diets (tuna, milk and oranges, anyone?)” to the relationship heartaches, career disasters and difficult choices that would “change her life forever”.

His girlfriend Tahnee Sims was right behind him and commented: “So awesome! Can’t wait to read.”

“Best bloody book I’m ever going to read!” Courtney Ally said.
