Cameo and Memmo have erupted in popularity in recent years. On the apps, users can find a celebrity – from actors to singers, comedians and sport personalities – and request a personalised video message for their friends and family.
Business has been booming as everyone’s stuck at home in lockdown, and the sites also provide an outlet for many entertainers and public figures to make money in these strange times. There are now more than 40,000 celebrities on Cameo alone offering to make personalised videos, and the website keeps 25 per cent of their earnings.
We’ve put together a list of the best Scottish celebs currently available on Cameo and Memmo.
