Christian says he’s surprised by the nomination because he caught his father asleep while reading it.

“A lot of the book is about my amazing upbringing and the hilarious stories about life with triplet brothers and parents who took us on some interesting adventures. Dad has lived through it all so I think reliving those memories tired him out.

“You can imagine how much work it was raising four loud and rambunctious children,” says the comedian.

Christian’s parents say they’re extremely proud of their son who failed most of his subjects at school.

“He wasn’t the sharpest tool in the shed,” says Christian’s father, John Hull.

Christian’s mum Karen says, “We are both thrilled to see that his book has been received so warmly and had many friends and family tell us how much they enjoyed it.”
