"Holy Moly" originated as a well-known exclamation by the Captain Marvel Comic-Book characters created in 1939 by artist C. C. Beck and writer Bill Parker. Those characters (and the expression "Holy Moly") first appeared in Whiz Comics #2 (February 1940) and Fawcett Comics (1939–1953); for details see Captain Marvel (DC Comics).
Holy Moly, often known as "HM", is an entertainment website and weekly email based in the UK, with similarities to Popbitch and B3ta. It publishes (often scathing) gossip items related to celebrities, notably Amy Winehouse, Kerry Katona, Tom Cruise and Paris Hilton. The website's scoops often appear shortly after publication in the gossip pages of British tabloids such as The Sun the Daily Mirror and the Daily Star. Due to the nature of the content Holy Moly has occasionally been threatened with legal action, for example from ex-Eastenders actor Chris Parker.
The MediaGuardian website claims that the gossip is "supplied by an army of around 100 industry insiders". In November 2007, Sky News' James Silver interviewed Mr. Holy Moly - the interview revealed that he had started the website on a secret laptop whilst working at Sky News. Recently, he has appeared frequently on BBC Radio Five Live's Richard Bacon show as the presenter's friend and has maintained his personal anonymity, albeit revealing a distinctly Derbyshire accent. February 2008, he appeared on Channel 4's chat show The Richard & Judy Show, attacking photos of celebrities like Britney Spears, Amy Winehouse and Heather Mills-McCartney and declaring that these paparazzi are damaging the business.
