The Mail on Sunday

With agenda-setting exclusives week-in, week-out, hard-hitting campaigns that achieve genuine change, and an unrivalled breadth and depth of coverage, commentary, and advice, it’s no wonder that The Mail on Sunday remains Britain’s biggest-selling Sunday newspaper. By investing in top-flight journalism, the MoS dominates the mid-market, uniquely positioned not just to break hard news - from powerful front-line reporting on Israel’s war in Gaza to huge political scoops – but to deliver a complete package of engrossing features, sparkling showbiz gossip, unrivalled sports reporting, crusading health coverage and the essential YOU magazine, leading the way on fashion and lifestyle trends. 

On the world’s biggest story, we have offered comprehensive coverage and astute analysis of the Hamas atrocities and Israel’s counter-strikes. Within hours of the terrorist massacre in October, the MoS led with a powerful full-front-page image of the moment terrified festival-goer Noa Argamani was abducted, bringing home the full horror of the attack. We were also the only news outlet to highlight how women at a pro-Palestine protest in London were glorifying the paragliders who led the unthinkable slaughter. In May, Showbiz Editor Katie Hind broke the story of Phillip Schofield’s inappropriate secret relationship with a much younger colleague, sending shockwaves throughout the TV industry and raising major questions about workplace ethics. For weeks it was the only story the country was talking about, being discussed in Parliament and dominating headlines in the UK and around the world. 

Our campaigning journalism came to the fore when our reporters went undercover with vegan activists Animal Rebellion to expose a plot to sabotage the Grand National. By alerting the authorities, we could proudly assert: ’We saved The National’ after the world’s most famous horse race went off with barely a hitch. Royal exclusives remain an enviable forte, including our revelation that King Charles had asked the Archbishop of Canterbury to broker a deal that would allow Prince Harry to attend his Coronation. We also offered incontrovertible proof that the MoS’s infamous picture of Prince Andrew with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell was not doctored, as friends of the Prince had claimed. Our Royal coverage resonates especially powerfully with readers, with a remarkable 132-page special Coronation edition putting on an extraordinary 200,000 sales – underlining the MoS’s innate understanding of what makes Middle England tick. Meanwhile, our political stories continue to be the talk of Westminster. Political Editor Glen Owen secured Nadine Dorries’ resignation interview lacerating the Prime Minister, and revealed that Liz Truss had been sent a £12,000 bill following the disappearance of items including bathrobes and slippers from Chevening while she was using it. 

On the lighter side, we secured the world exclusive interviews with both the ‘older woman’ who took Prince Harry’s virginity, after he sparked a global guessing game by discussing her in his controversial memoir, and Rebecca Loos, who hit back at the portrayal of her affair with David Beckham in the expertly spun Netflix docuseries about the England ace. Meanwhile, indomitable star columnists such as Sarah Vine and Peter Hitchens offer a diverse range of opinions on the issues that matter – insightful, provocative and entertaining in equal measure. But each of the MoS’s eight sections has its own Herculean pulling power, from our unbeatable sports coverage – with more pages than any other newspaper – to the accessible coverage of personal finance. 

Our Health team’s investigation into private menopause doctors prescribing risky high-dose HRT triggered a major clampdown, while their Dignity for Disabled People campaign, brought the horrendous circumstances faced by the most vulnerable in society on to the national agenda. And MoS Sport campaigned tirelessly for Sharron Davies to be given the Olympic gold swimming medal stolen from her by an East German drug-cheat at the 1980 Moscow Games. No longer just a ‘newspaper’, The Mail on Sunday has established a joined-up, digital-first newsroom to embrace the future of our industry, with the paid-for Mail+ website now attracting almost 1million unique visitors a month. However people read newspapers in the coming years, Britain’s No1 Sunday title will remain committed to fearlessly breaking the biggest stories, campaigning for a better Britain, and upholding a free Press.
