What we do

heat has been bringing you the best in banging celebrity stories**,** entertainment scoops, and wearable-by-a-real-human-body fashion and style, since 1999. Incredible!

What makes heat unique, and the secret behind our success (but don’t tell everybody), is our clever-but-silly sense of humour and irreverent-but-never-mean tone. Celebs love our shoots because they’re so gosh-darn fun. Come on, where else are you going to see James ‘Arg’ Argent’s bum in a CLASSY David Beckham shoot? In fact all our Stars Dress Up shoots are iconic.

Our writers live and breathe showbiz, we’ve watched every. single. episode ofLove Island and – yes – we’re including the celebrity years, we have very definite opinions on who should have won Big Brother, and we are LIVING for Married at First Sight.

We also run heat’s unmissable awards, crowning the best shows, comedians, albums and podcasts each year. In fact, our entertainment director, Boyd Hilton, is a bit of a celeb himself.

Sarah O’Byrne – editorial assistant

Sarah O’Byrne began working as an editorial assistant at heat, Closer, Crime Monthly and Yours in May 2023. For heat and Closer, she has written countless articles on the holy trinity- Made in Chelsea, Love Island, and Married At First Sight UK. While she loves writing about reality TV, her real dream is to be a contestant on Married At First Sight UK, also known as one of the greatest televised experiments of our time, and she believes there’s still a chance.

In Dublin, she interned for the music and politics magazine Hot Press, as well as the independent publishing house Liberties Press. She also once worked as a personal shopper at a fancy American doll shop - how boujee, or creepy, depending on how you look at it.
