Alex has worked at Digital Spy since 2007 when he began by writing stories about the often forgotten Big Brother romance between Ziggy and Chanelle. He has managed to recover from that ordeal and is now Deputy Editor and spends most of his days ruling with an iron fist over the TV section. Believing that is possible to love Mad Men and The X Factor in equal measure, he mixes trash and class on a day-to-day basis. Follow @dsrealitybites

He also writes the Soap Scoop blog. He loves all the soapland universes but, if forced to choose, his heart belongs to Neighbours.

Christian lives in London with two kittens. His proudest moment was a starring role in St. Trinian's 2 as Audience Member #139 and if he could bring back any TV show it would be Channel 5's criminally underloved The Mole. He says the best thing about working for DS is that he can keep tabs on Kyle Sandilands - who's less of a hero, more of a spiritual leader.
Kate joined Digital Spy in February 2011 and is the site's resident night owl, often working to the strains of Pages From Ceefax until its untimely demise. When she's not watching motor racing or indulging in music from almost any genre, she can be found roaming the Northern countryside, camera in hand, looking for the way out.
Greg joined DS's subbing team in February 2012, working during the week. After warming up with a five-year legal career, he is now happily living in the world of entertainment journalism.

Daniel joined DS in June 2010 as a Big Brother reporter, during which time he developed an inexplicable aversion to moaning Australians. After an extended stint freelancing on weekends, in May 2012 he was promoted to a full-time entertainment reporter. He speaks almost entirely in Friends quotes.
Emma joined DS in March 2012 as a freelance entertainment reporter before being promoted to full-time two months later in a movies-focused position. Her obsession with Breaking Bad and Sherlock borders on the psychologically unhealthy, and she also quite fancies Rimmer from Red Dwarf.
Jason develops the Digital Spy software platform across the main website and the back-end content management system. When he's not watching his beloved Chelsea football club or getting on stage to perform in theatres, he likes to watch reruns of Blackadder.
Miles works on the front-end side of development for Digital Spy - basically what you see when you're using the site. He splits his time between London and Bournemouth.
Head of Video Production

Donna became a member of the production team in July 2011.

Jamie joined the DS production team in June 2012. As a Francophile, he admits to having an unhealthy obsession to everything French. When not crossing the Channel for his French food fix of croissants

His favourite game is Super Mario World on the SNES and his fave console is the PS2.
Alison joined Digital Spy in June 2012 to report on all things entertainment. An unashamedly big Britney fan, subject matter magpie and life-long Londoner, she was brought up on a diet of Pet Shop Boys, ABBA and Michael Jackson and so has a soft spot for pop music. When she's not writing, she can be found frittering away precious time on Twitter.
Alice joined DS in mid-2012 and contributes stories for the Odd section. She writes about bacon sundaes, foxes riding the Underground and terrible waxworks.
Frances joined Digital Spy in October 2012 as an entertainment and X Factor reporter. Living in Brighton, she splits her time between writing about and watching TV.

Movies / Comics Reporter
Hugh joined DS in June 2009 to write about comics - following a year of not taking pictures of naked men for Gay Times magazine - and later expanded his remit into movies to monitor the endless stream of unlikely superhero adaptation rumours. He worships at the altars of Grant Morrison and Jonathan Hickman. For all our sakes, don't ask him to list favourites in any medium or genre.
Liam provides gaming news, reviews, features as well as the weekly game charts. He is a freelance journalist and has written for a number of other sites on a variety of subjects and has also worked in local and sports radio. Liam's favourite gaming memories involve shunning the sunshine in favour of epic sessions with his Mega Drive.

Jennifer joined the DS team in 2010 as an entertainment reporter and has since become the queen of live blogging - by her own standards, anyway.

Justin joined DS in 2010, covering the latest developments in Hollywood and beyond. He spends his free time reading about the golden era of Hollywood, watching pretentious art films and obsessing over TV shows like Doctor Who, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Arrested Development.

Kristina joined Digital Spy in October 2011 and covers news shifts regularly from the States.
Leah joined DS from Express Newspapers in January 2012 after relocating from London to LA. When she's not glued to reality TV, you'll find her schmoozing at events, indulging in her love of spa days and trying to complete her own A-Z list of restaurants to frequent. A fan of holidays and house music, she's also partial to a bit of Hanson (yes, as in 'MMMBop'!).
Zeba joined the Digital Spy team in January 2012 as a US reporter. When she's not studying film criticism at The New School in New York, she enjoys watching Doctor Who, blogging, listening to the Spice Girls without irony and hanging out in exotic locales with her BFF Beyoncé.
