The People

"The People", previously known as the "Sunday People", is a British tabloid Sunday-only newspaper, owned by the Trinity Mirror Group. The paper was founded on 16 October 1881.

It is a competitor to "The News Of The World", although with a circulation slightly less than one million, The "People" lags somewhat behind its rival and its sister paper "The Sunday Mirror". It usually features scandals about celebrities.

The newspaper has been affected by cost-cutting during 2006, including fourteen journalists being made redundant.

Columnists

In 2007 the paper ran a competition to find their People Babe 2007 and this was won by a new model Billie Eadie, who was pictured posing with Rodney Bewes in a controversial photoshoot.
