All about the United Kingdom’s national, regional and local press

Daily Star

The Daily Star was launched in 1978 (the first brand-new national daily newspaper since the Daily Mirror in 1903) by publishers Express Newspapers, with the aim of competing for The Sun‘s readership, and thus with similar sensationalism, including a topless model.

It has a similarly hard right-wing stance politically to both its sister paper the Daily Express and its great rival The Sun – although the hard news content is negligible (even less than The Sun‘s); sport, scandal (especially involving sex) and celebrity gossip are what fill the average edition of the Star.

A separate Sunday edition called the Daily Star Sunday was established in 2002.

There’s a separate edition for the Republic of Ireland.

An iPad app is also available.
