Website

Hellomagazine.com is the official website of the weekly celebrity news magazine Hello!, and the UK's leading celebrity news site. Started in 2001 to complement the magazine, the site is updated throughout the day, seven days a week.

History

Launched in April 2001, it is part of the larger Hello! brand, but contains completely separate content to the weekly magazine. It reports celebrity news on an hourly rather than weekly basis. Since it launched with the magazine's trademark bold color palette it has undergone a redesign which has made it feel lighter and brighter. By January 2008 over 1.5 million readers were using hellomagazine.com.

Content

The site provides readers, about half of whom are women under 34, with photos, news stories and video content divided into the following categories: actors and actresses, musicians, fashion and models, royalty and statesmen, celebrities, health and beauty and travel.

Daily content ranges from coverage of the latest happenings in the lives of Hollywood stars like Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise to English talent such as Hugh Laurie and Keira Knightley. It features comprehensive picture galleries of all the main fashion shows, special events such as The Oscars and an extensive list of quizzes on famous people.

The horoscope section is provided by British astrologer Jonathan Cainer. There are also visual news updates (News In Pix), profiles on musicians, actors and actresses and statesmen, short interviews and a comprehensive mini-biography section focusing specifically on UK names.

It is particularly known for its coverage of European royals, including far flung branches of lesser known families.
