My Celebrity Life

It’s A Screen – The rise and rise of the celebrity video message

Since March 2020, we’ve all had to deal with a slightly different way of life – from working from home to replacing exotic holidays with staycations.  Without a doubt, one of the most difficult parts of all the lockdowns and restrictions has been the curbs on our social lives.  In many cases, people have had to sacrifice seeing their loved ones in order to slow the spread of COVID-19 and, as hard as this is, lots of people have risen to the challenge by finding new and innovative ways of reaching out and staying connected with friends and family. 

I’m a celebrity – get me out there!

At a time when we were unable to get together with our squads, technology really came into its own.  Zoom calls, social media and Whatsapp helped to keep us together when we had to be apart and, as the situation continued, one trend began to emerge – that of the celebrity video message. 

During the pandemic, most celebrities found themselves with a little extra time on their hands and thus began to sell personalised video messages to their fans.  Celebrities like former Blue singer, Simon Webbe, jumped onto this bandwagon by charging between £50 and £75 for a personalised video message and this became so successful that Simon says that he received over 100 requests in the run-up to Mother’s Day alone.  Simon added, ‘A lot of my work is international so I’ve not been able to make a living for over a year at all.  This is just a little way to earn those extra little pennies’.  Other celebrities selling video messages include Sven Goran Eriksson and Sir Rod Stewart.  

As well as video messages, lots of famous people, such as popular Scottish comedian, Janey Godley, have kept the wheels turning by holding live events on social media for their fans as well as real-time calls and video calls.  Of course, all of that takes a considerable amount of organisation to make it work and, a lot of celebrities and agents have enlisted the help of Booksy to make sure that no fan is left disappointed.
