More! was a weekly women's fashion magazine and associated website[2] published every Tuesday in the United Kingdom by Bauer London Lifestyle.[3] It included celebrity news, high street fashion, and sex tips. The magazine was published fortnightly until September 2007, when it became a weekly publication[1] to compete with Look magazine. More USA is still published.

On 22 April 2013, Bauer Media Group announced that it would cease publication of More! Magazine and its website.[4] In its closing web comments, the publishers reported that continuing challenging economic conditions meant that the product was no longer viable.

The ABCs in August 2009 revealed a 17.3% growth of year-on-year circulation, making more! the UK's fastest growing glossy celeb weekly.

The magazine launched its own annual fashion awards in 2004.[5]

Also in 2009, the magazine sponsored The City[6] when it was shown on MTV.
