My Weekly Latest Issue July 10-16


Cover of My Weekly July 10, 2018, with Julie Walters and healthy cookery

My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneMany years ago, I worked as a newspaper reporter and in the summer of 2008 I was asked to write a story on the massive success of a small musical film called Mamma Mia! I’ll confess, I’m not a huge Abba fan so I was a bit cynical, but even I couldn’t avoid being swept up on the wave of enthusiasm for the Greek romance. Now, 10 years on, I’m a bit older and greyer, and the gang are back for the long-awaited sequel. I hope you enjoy our behind-the-scenes look at the movie – and I’ll see you all at the cinema on release day!

Fancy That

A reader phoned the My Weekly office last week, certain that one of our Fancy That facts in a recent issue simply could not be true. Happily, an online check of several sources finally convinced her that it was. So what astonishing fun facts do we have for you this week? Ah, you’ll have to buy the magazine to find out… but there’s something about bears!

I've worked on a variety of regional newspapers and national magazines. My Weekly is a fantastic, warm-hearted brand with an amazing, talented team. I'm a sub-editor and particularly love working on fiction and the advice pages - I feel I should know all the secrets of eternal life, health and happiness by now, but hey, we all need that weekly reminder!
