For immediate release

It’s party time at hellomagazine.com as the website celebrates five successful years

Hellomagazine.com, the daily celebrity news site is five years old. Since its launch in 2001, its exclusive mix of glorious photos and up-to-the-minute insights into the lives of the rich and famous has made it the site of choice for serious star-watchers in the UK, with almost a million unique users and delivering on average over 20 million impressions per month.

The site will be rolling out new applications and features over the course of 2006. Coming up are:
A weekly podcast with exclusive hellomagazine.com content. This audio feast will give the lowdown on who's doing what, wearing what and stepping out with whom, in a chatty, fun-filled overview of all the week's "can't miss" items.
The return of celebrity video news to the site. Get ready for the some of the best clips of your favourite celebrities on the web!
A digital edition of the magazine. The digital edition will combine online delivery with the look and feel of the printed magazine.

Over the last year, hellomagazine.com has expanded its daily celebrity news offering to include Yahoo! in the UK, with specifically tailored images and captions. See http://uk.news.yahoo.com/hot/h/hello-magazine.html
We also have Ask.com working with the site to generate more relevant search results for the reader by creating text links within the news stories which click through to the corresponding reply page on Ask.com.

Tree Elven, Web Editor, said: “I’m very happy that we made our fifth anniversary in such style. We have the attention of a large audience now, and I’m looking forward to what we can do with upcoming projects that feature our celebrity news for the future. Many happy returns to us!” -Ends-
