Now that Perez Hilton has swapped his famously snarky style for a more advertising-friendly format, to whom can we turn for our daily fix of online gossip? For The Record’s favourite, by far, is the new blog from Zoe Griffin. Remember: formerly of the Sunday Mirror?

But what does she make of her US rival’s make-under? “It doesn’t surprise me,” says Griffin. “It just proved what I’ve always believed – you don’t need to be nasty for no reason. Well, not if your stories are good enough.” Perez, sounds like you have some competition.
