The People has snapped up TV presenter Eamonn Holmes to be a star columnist. The GMTV anchor man will write the weekly Man of The People column, replacing David Mellor.
Editor Mark Thomas said: “This is a fantastic signing and a major coup for The People. As well as being a great journalist and a huge star, Eamonn has real star quality and will be a great addition to the People package.”
The paper has also signed top psychologist Dr Pam Spurr as the paper’s new agony aunt. The author, presenter and relationship counsellor replaces Vernon Coleman.
