From celebrity candidates and aspiring singing Prime Ministers to candidates becoming the focus of gossip magazines, the boundaries between celebrity and politics are becoming increasingly blurred. With the National Elections approaching, this article reflects on the phenomenon of personalisation of politics and its possible effects on the democratic process. In particular, we focus on how social, political and media psychology can contribute to explaining the phenomenon and its impact on voters’ attitudes and behaviours.
