The BBC1 Inside Sport Special: Kieren Fallon — The Ride to Redemption goes out on Monday, 14 December at 11.20pm.
“My racing comeback has proven to all who doubted me that I am capable of becoming champion jockey for a seventh time,” said Fallon.
“Unfortunately headlines have left people with a distorted opinion of me as a person.”
During the show, Fallon tells broadcaster and former amateur jockey Clare Balding about his turbulent career, explaining how he wants to turn his life around following an 18-month racing ban after failing a drugs test for cocaine.
Fallon also talks candidly about his six-month ban for pulling jockey Stuart Webster off his horse, allegations of race fixing and alcohol problems.
He told H&H: “There are two sides to every story and now I have the chance to tell the public my side.”
