|Full name||Gemma Calvert|
I am a freelance celebrity interviewer, entertainment journalist and showbiz expert available for celebrity interviews, entertainment features and lifestyle commissions. With 14 years of experience in the world of newspapers and magazines I now write for publications including Fabulous, OK!, Hello, Grazia, Cosmopolitan, Closer, NOW, LOOK, The Sun, Daily Mirror and the Mail on Sunday. I am interested in all exclusive and non exclusive celebrity access opportunities from brand product endorsements to film, television and music promotional campaigns. When you need national publicity for your client I can deliver newspaper and magazine coverage. Firstly, I will pitch to your target publications, which saves you time and effort and then through one single interview I will source content to serve either as one exclusive or for multiple reads. I have a reputation for capturing the spirit of interviewees, writing colourful, sharp and well-researched copy as well as more thoughtful reads. Please give me a call to discuss any interviews, features or projects that I can help with.

After an eight year career as a tabloid newspaper journalist I was appointed Entertainment Editor at LOOK magazine where I transformed the magazine’s access to the stars, securing exclusive interviews and photo shoots with the likes of Ellie Goulding, Taylor Swift, will.i.am, Kim Kardashian, and Abbey Clancy.
Most recently, I spent 14 months at the showbiz helm of The Sun on Sunday’s Fabulous magazine. As Assistant Editor (Celebrity) I was solely responsible for the weekly celebrity cover shoot and interview and secured exclusive access to Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding, Nicki Minaj, Amy Adams, Alesha Dixon, Kelly Brook, Sarah-Jane Crawford, McBusted, Katherine Jenkins, Nicole Scherzinger and Susanna Reid, to name a few.
My broadcasting experience includes appearances on Sky News and Channel 4 News, guest co-hosting LBC’s entertainment show and presenting promotional films at corporate golf days and charity awards dinners.
