Caroline Barrett has been at Closer since 2005, and before that was a feature writer at the Sunday People.

Barrett said: ‘The most important thing for me when I was thinking about a transition from journalism into PR was that I wanted to work for someone who represented their clients while understanding the needs of the reporter.’

Farrow, chairman of The Corporation, is one of entertainment PR’s heaviest hitters.

His client roster includes Elton John, Sharon and ­Ozzy Osborne and Gordon Ramsay.
