News2Day Weekly - Zoo Weekly - Netflix

Zoo is a defunct British (and formerly an Australian and South African) lads' magazine published weekly by Bauer Media Group in the United Kingdom. It was launched on 29 January 2004, and for a time was the UK's only men's weekly after the similar and rival magazine Nuts closed in April 2014. On 17 November 2015, Zoo announced on its website that it would be suspending publication. Zoo consisted of a mix of comedy news, sports commentary, photos of glamour models, jokes (of the pub joke style), an entertainments guide (covering TV, cinema, video/computer games and music), fashion/grooming and comical/rude pictures sent in by readers.

An Australian edition of Zoo was introduced on 27 February 2006 with a special promotional issue that was free of charge. The first official issue came out a week later on 20 February 2006. It featured Krystal Forscutt and David Boon as columnists, and much the same features as its British counterpart, except the sport commentary was mainly about rugby league and Australian rules football. Spokesperson/models used regularly in Zoo Weekly included Brooke Evers, former Big Brother Australia contestants Krystal Forscutt, Emma Cornell and Susannah Murray. Resident sex and relationship advice columnists for 2009–2010 were “The Threesome” of Monica Lee Paige, Bonnie Edwards and Ardina Voogt. From 2012 the sex and relationship advice column was presented by regular cover model, Ashlee Adams. In May 2006, the Australian model Lara Bingle took legal action against EMAP Australia, the publisher of Zoo Weekly, claiming defamation by the magazine when it allegedly published photographs of the model without her permission in the 27 March 2006 issue. On 16 September 2007, it was reported that the professional golfer Nikki Garrett had instructed her lawyers to begin an action against Zoo Weekly in the Australian Federal Court. The matter related to the 29 January 2007, edition of Zoo Weekly in which a photo of Garrett—taken for a charity fund-raiser—was reproduced in the magazine accompanied by an allegedly salacious caption. On 17 September 2015 Bauer Media issued a press release confirming the closure of the Australian weekly edition. The closure of Zoo Weekly magazine encompassed all platforms: print, website and social media assets and took effect from Monday 12 October 2015.
