“Celebrities” have dominated news culture in the last decade and become a mini publishing industry all of their own. From the continuing popularity of reality television and magazines like Heat, real-life showbiz characters have come to dominate the popular press and broadcast schedules.

But could all this coming to an end? Joining us for an On the Media talk about the media’s relationship with fame, are comedian and journalist Jane Bussman – author of The Worst Date Ever; Popbitch founder Camilla Wright; Heat magazine editor and broadcaster Sam Delaney and Sharon Hatt, celebrity liaison at the National Autistic Society.

The debate will be chaired by Robin Morgan, journalist and former editor of the Sunday Times magazine.
