You Don’t Know Viv
Despite more than five decades passed, Viv Nicholson winning the pools and her immortal catchphrase, “I’m going to Spend, Spend Spend!” is locked into everyone’s cultural memories.
But while most know of her fortune won and lost, few recall that she was tragically widowed at the age of 27, married five times, and gained and lost another sizeable sum of money, all before she hit 45.
And the remainder of her life was no less dramatic. Viv’s tale became a movie and a musical (resulting in another fortune won and lost), she suffered a difficult battle with drink, more than one attempt at suicide, and finally experienced recovery and salvation from the most unexpected of sources.
For Viv, telling the full story was crucial. Her journey to finding a redemptive peace within herself and with her family was a revelation that she felt compelled to relate. And with her permission, I’ve taken on the task of finishing my Mum’s work.
Told from my perspective, and with contributions from other members of Viv’s family, “You Don’t Know Viv” completes the unforgettable story of a “lass from Cass” and ensures that the true events of her extraordinary life will never be forgotten.
