The prensa del corazón is the generic term given in Spain to weekly or fortnightly magazines specializing in society gossip and the social lives of the rich and famous. The pioneer was ¡Hola, which first appeared in 1944 - Hello magazine is the English-language version - while other popular titles include Pronto, Lecturas, Semana and Diez Minutos. In recent years TV stations have followed their lead with seemingly more and more celebrity and gossip programmes (programas del corazón) appearing all the time.
