Do you have a life like a celebrity? Do you look like a celebrity? Or are you a great fan of someone famous?

You might have recently appeared on a TV show such as Britain’s Got Talent or X Factor…

Or perhaps your own life mirrors a current soap storyline?

Celebrities often sell a story to promote themselves. In fact gaining publicity is an essential part of any celebrity’s life as without those write-ups in newspapers and magazines, they simply would not be famous.

Selling your own story is a great way to promote yourself. At the same time, if you have a story about a celebrity to sell to a newspaper or a celebrity-led idea for an article in a magazine, then we can sell it for you…

Here is a selection of some past celebrity stories …
