Synopsis: Once there were stars. Now everyone wants to be a celebrity -- how did we get from Cary Grant to Jedward? It’s 1968. Helena runs Albion PR in London’s Wardour Street, looking after ‘difficult’ stars. She hires 19 year-old Billy to teach him the secrets of the business. Saving the reputations of her clients involves an outrageous amount of lying and cheating, but neither Helena nor Billy realize this innocent era is about to come crashing to an end…
Celebrity is based on the life of a real London PR agent. Only the names of scandal-struck celebrities will be changed to protect us from libel!
