The Sun is best news provider for Royal stories with extensive coverage of the King’s coronation and scoops including the news Harry and Meghan would leave their UK home, confirmed in a statement by the pair which led bulletins and front pages the world over, and helped us increase our numbers for March.

Our showbiz team lit the torch-paper for one of the biggest showbiz stories of the decade - Holly and Phil. We started it all by revealing that Holly and Phil were no longer speaking, leading to every other newsbrand trying to get ahead of our story-telling.

We broke stories online ahead of the paper to beat our rivals, including the news that Phillip was to be sacked by ITV and, despite leading the charge on the story, got the first filmed interview with Phillip Schofield.

The astonishing 90-minute filmed interview was clipped up to create multiple news stories including the broadcaster confirming the accuracy of our reports, delivering more revelations, apologising but insisting he was not a “groomer.”

The interview was watched by more than 2.6million people, followed up by news outlets across the UK, as well as clips going viral on Tik Tok. Our scoops have included Nadhim Zahawi’s tax affairs leading to national news stories for weeks until his eventual resignation, Gary Glitter’s release from prison and subsequent return to prison following exclusive pictures showing him breaking the conditions of his bail, HS2 going off the rails. We also broke national news stories beating our rivals including the news that alleged sex offender Mason Greenwood charges would be dropped and later that he was to be a dad.
