Probably - the media, Emap, Frith, Heat, Mojo, you know, a few people.

I don't know - the story has yet to be confirmed - but my understanding is that Frith wanted to edit Mojo and Emap is keen to keep him happy, given his great track record. Still, the move, if true, would be like migrating from editing OK! to The Spectator.

I don't think sticker-gate, though appalling in itself, was a big enough ishoo to dislodge an editor.

Madame, what do you think of him - are you a fan? He did do some amazing stuff for Heat's sales back in the day.

He's done very well to turn Heat into what it is - a rather blander version of celeb obsessed Perez Hilton: it's what sells I guess. But originally Heat was going to be a movie-based mag with a bit of cred; it didn't sell, of course. Frith has a great track record for flogging copies, as I say.
