About Us

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 below).

Affiliate disclosure

Do you make affiliate commission?

We work with a variety of affiliate partnerships and we may receive a commission for purchases made through our links.

How does this impact your editorial work?

Our affiliate partnerships do not impact on the product choices we make, or the reviews we write. There is no pressure on our editorial team to choose particular products or brands; we won’t recommend a product that we don’t believe in.

Our team spends hours investigating and researching what products you should spend your hard-earned cash on, based on analysis and customer reviews. Everything we recommend we would buy ourselves (and probably already have, in many cases) – consider us your shopaholic friends who try it before you buy it. We know what matters to you, because it matters to us.
