Fae Clerey, Managing Editor
After studying Multi-Media Journalism at Bournemouth University Fae went on to work for BBC Guernsey, where she presented and produced radio shows as well as working as a TV journalist and news reader. After five years at the BBC Fae made the leap to London and joined Entertainment News.
Fae had the immense pleasure of interviewing Channing Tatum on her first day and it’s been onwards and upwards ever since. Fae became Film Editor soon after starting and has got stuck into the world of movies. She’s interviewed the likes of Johnny Depp, Ricky Gervais, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kate Winslet, Colin Farrell, Bradley Cooper and Charles Dance to name just a few. She was also part of the Entertainment News team who covered the MTV EMAs in Milan and has covered the BAFTAs and London Film Festival.
Francine Jordan, Deputy Managing Editor and Music Editor
While studying Broadcast Journalism at the University of Leeds, Francine could only dream of landing a job working on red carpets in London. After short stints at ITV and More! Magazine, she spent five years working as a live reporter and producer at BBC Radio Jersey before being offered the role of Television Editor at Entertainment News.
In her first year she ticked everyone off her interview bucket list - including Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Jack Black, Kourtney Kardashian, Blink 182 and The Rolling Stones.
After a year in Australia, Francine then returned to Entertainment News as the Music Editor and Deputy Managing Editor and can already boast working the BRITs, BAFTA TV Awards, MTV EMAs and interviewing everyone from Keira Knightley and Little Mix to George Clooney and Dua Lipa.
Charlotte Long, Film Editor
Before joining Entertainment News, Charlotte worked in radio station newsrooms across the country, including Heart Radio, 964 Eagle, Pirate FM, Jack FM, Radio Jackie and Lincs FM. She also wrote for various magazines and news websites, including Metro and Huffington Post.
Charlotte decided to get into journalism after living in New York, where she reviewed up-and-coming bands for a music website, including the then-unknown Bastille. It pushed her to study for her gold standard NCTJ and 100-words-a-minute shorthand and to work for a local newspaper. Fresh out of journalism school, Charlotte worked as a radio station mascot, Wilbur the Bear, and could be found making appearances at local events.
So far at Entertainment News, she’s interviewed Michael Fassbender, Jude Law, Guy Ritchie, Sean Bean, Aidan Turner aka Poldark (a career high), Charlie Hunnam and Bananarama, but waits patiently until the day comes when she can meet her hero, Leonardo DiCaprio.
Jamie Burton, TV Editor
Bringing a northern accent to the team, Jamie joined Entertainment News in the summer of 2017 from the Press Association. He got his Multimedia Journalism degree and NCTJ qualifications from the University of Teesside, with a brief stint at the University of South Carolina in the middle. In his native Teesside, Jamie graduated from hosting shows on the university radio station Click, to working as a live reporter for BBC Tees, Star Radio, and Minster FM.
Since joining the team, Jamie’s showbiz highs have come in the form of having a flirt-off with Josh Brolin, getting embarrassingly tongue-tied in front of Sir Patrick Stewart and making Lily James snort with laughter with a killer dad joke.
Jamie’s lived and worked in America, China and Germany, but says he’s yet to find anything as baffling as the pre-red carpet entertainment at Leicester Square film premieres.
Cecily Snowball, Entertainment Journalist
After leaving the University of Kent with a degree in Journalism and The News Industry, Cecily went on to cover regional news for BBC South East Today, and looked after all things behind-the-scenes as the researcher and social media manager for BBC Sunday Politics South East. She then made the huge leap to the world of entertainment for the MailOnline showbiz desk before heading over to Entertainment News.
Cecily has covered numerous high-profile red carpets, including the British Independent Film Awards, the UK premiere of Avengers: Endgame and the world premiere of Bohemian Rhapsody. She’s also interviewed the likes of Samuel L. Jackson, Julianne Moore, Colin Farrell and Lady Gaga.
