The Sensational Inside Story of the Celebrity Decade
The Sunday Times bestselling inside story of Heat magazine, packed with anecdotes and gossip, now in paperback
When Mark Frith was told to make Heat the next big women's weekly, he dived headlong into the insanity of the celebrity world, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Posh, Kylie and Jordan. Soon Heat had over two million avid readers, and was the UK's favourite source of gossip.
Charting the explosion of Big Brother, igniting the Size Zero debate and watching Britney's descent from sexpot to being sectioned, Heat was there for every major celebrity debate.
Told in the irreverent style we've all come to know and love, The Celeb Diaries is Mark's incredible story of his life in the eye of the celeb storm.
“Thrilling ... in a celebrity-obsessed society, this is a fascinating document”
Julian Clary, Observer
“Indiscreet, fast-paced and breathlessly funny”
“It's chatty, indiscreet and an insight into celebrity culture from someone who witnessed it all from the inside”
News of the World
“An easy-read history of the ephemeral culture of this decade through the eyes of the editor of its most irreverent magazine”
“The title which might well trump them all is The Celeb Diaries, an unfettered account of life in the celebrity jetstream by former Heat editor Mark Frith. Modelled on, and indeed produced by the same team as The Insider by Piers Morgan, this promises to be full of enough celebrity indiscretions to keep you reading until the turkey's finally finished”
“Absolutely fascinating, both in its description of the growth in the magazine and the growth in the celebrity culture ... a great read”
“No one knows celebrities like Mark Frith”
