What we do

Closer stormed the celeb magazine scene in 2005, and has been bringing you the best of showbiz news, telly scoops, and affordable life and style tips ever since. All delivered by our friendly, chatty, team of experienced writers.

We are obsessed with the best (okay, and occasionally worst) reality TV on the box and know which TOWIE stars have split, whose DMs they’ve slid into, and the 9.50 secret behind their dewy skin too.

We have definite opinions on the best series of Love Island (it was 2016, don’t @ us – actually do, we love chatting with readers), and have watched every episode of the Real Housewives of Cheshire.

We’ve been inside Amy Childs’ house (with her permission), stripped off Faye Winters, and Molly-Mae Hague told us what show producers forced her to do in the villa (see YouTube video below).
