Many of the world’s most successful people have seen their careers nosedive following sex scandals, addictions, brushes with the law, corruption or financial troubles. The higher they have risen in the public eye, the greater their fall. Some have managed to bounce back - were forgiven and rehabilitated into the public sphere, others never recovered. A few, like Amy Winehouse, died still haunted by the demons that had plagued them in their tragically short yet spectacular lives or like UK media personality Jimmy Savile, had their dark secrets exposed after they died. Fallen Idols looks at the Hollywood greats, pop icons, sex symbols, politicians, sports stars and celebrities, who became household names but fell from gracecharting the demise of the powerful and popular, from President Richard Nixon to Elvis Presley, and Marilyn Monroe to Whitney Houston.
