Description

Has a year of lockdowns, shut cinemas and limited red carpet events changed celebrity culture forever?
 
As attention has shifted to the pandemic and everyday heroes, some celebrities have used their platform for activism, be it supporting the NHS or Black Lives Matter, while others have seemingly forgotten their privilege and flouted Covid restrictions.
 
In today's episode, Red Carpet veteran Minnie Stephenson delves into the past year and asks whether this is a turning point in celebrity culture?
 
Will we ever return to the glitz and glamour of old, or is the pandemic a catalyst in the shift from the old school celeb to the modern influencer?
