How to sell a celebrity story
Do you have information, photos or videos and are wondering how to sell a celebrity story?
Last week our story on Lisa Riley’s weight loss appeared as a double page spread in the Sunday Mirror. Galia Grainger, who runs Slimmeria, helped Lisa kickstart her diet after she stayed at the slimming retreat for a week last August. Galia wanted to know how to sell a celebrity story to help her promote the retreat, so contacted Talk to the Press.
Incredibly, Lisa lost 1 stone and five inches from her waist after going on a low calories diet at the retreat and learning healthy lifestyle tips. Today, 10 months on, she’s lost 7 stone and looks barely recognisable.
Despite achieving the fantastic results naturally through sheer hardwork and determination, Lisa has been forced to deny gastric band rumours.
She said: “If one more person asks me about a gastric band then I swear I will be tempted to cut myself open and show people there’s nothing there.”
We told the Sunday Mirror how Lisa shifted the pounds living on 400 calories a day and exercising up to four hours and secured an exclusive deal for the story. Weightloss guru Galia said: “Lisa always keeps me up to date with her weight loss. She told me she’d cut booze out for good and was keeping up the long walks and Zumba dance fitness classes.
“I’m so proud of her. Slimmeria isn’t about adopting a sustainable diet, it’s a kickstart approach to get people back on track while educating them on food so they can make lifestyle changes – exactly what Lisa has done.”
