As the author of 11 books, she is certainly an established writer.
But Giovanna Fletcher’s career in publishing hasn’t always been smooth sailing – with the… Winner I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, 36, reveals she lost 12,000 words from her new book Walking on Sunshine during the creative process.
MailOnline can exclusively describe the vlogger’s embarrassing blunder ahead of Jamie Laing and Francis Boulle’s release Genitals podcast episode on Friday.
Shocked Giovanna told the former Made In Chelsea stars: ‘I lost everything about the new book when my laptop died. I’ve lost 12,000 words.’
Ouch! Giovanna Fletcher, 36, has revealed that she lost 12,000 words from her new book Walking on Sunshine while appearing on Jamie Laing and Francis Boulle’s Private Parts podcast.
Fortunately, Giovanna managed to get her job back thanks to a little help from her friends when she discovered the document was stored in her cloud, with the star sharing the happy news with her social media followers at the time.
The mother of three’s first novel, Billy and Me, was published in 2013, but her career as a word artist was launched thanks to an unpublished satirical project about life with her McFly star beau Tom Fletcher, 35.
Acting, however, was Giovanna’s first love, having attended the prestigious Sylvia Young Theater School in London, but she insists she has now turned her back on her acting career.
When Jamie was questioned by Jamie about how she dealt with rejection, the CBeebies presenter said: ‘I was always aware of how hard it was, I learned about rejection. I wouldn’t change what happened. Getting in the door is the hardest part.’

And when asked if she would continue writing or try acting again in the future, she said, “When I write, I can create words and characters without the stress of acting.
“But with writing, you’re on your own, and when you’re acting, you’re part of a world that makes you feel alive.”
Giovanna, whose book Walking on Sunshine is due out in November, met husband Tom in her teens at school.
The couple have three children, their sons Buzz, seven, Buddy, five, and Max, two.
She started talking about married life with the musician and concluded: ‘Me and Tom have been married for nine years, 18 years together.

“We met when we were 13 in drama school. [There’s] the whole myth of growing up with someone and it gets too comfortable, but comfort is nice. Seeing each other as parents is something completely new.’
Giovanna recently revealed that she and Tom hope to revisit both of their honeymoon destinations to celebrate 10 years of marriage next year.
She told HELLO! magazine: “We want to take a trip to Jade Mountain in St. Lucia just for us and the whole family to Disney World in Florida, our second honeymoon destination.
“Having young children is brutal and intense, so it would be nice to have something focused on us.”
Giovanna can be heard from Friday 4 June in the podcast Private Parts by Jamie Laing and Francis Boulle.
