According to The Mirror, Tommy Fury is charging fans £30 to take pictures with him at meet and greets in Blackpool this week, while girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague is requesting just £4.

The expensive package gives Love Island fans the opportunity to grab a photo with Tommy and get his autograph at a shopping centre tomorrow.

Tommy is said to be earning roughly £5,000-an-hour for his appearances, which could allow him to rake in over £100,000 by the end of 2019.

Tommy's girlfriend Molly-Mae is doing a PA at Loft nightclub in Perth tomorrow night and fans can pay just £4 for a meet-and-greet as well as a selfie with her.

They can also enjoy £2 drinks all night after free club entry. The reality show couple have been visiting clubs for lucrative personal appearances all over the UK and Ireland.

Tommy was in Scotland, Chester and Norwich for PAs last week, and Molly-Mae even took a private jet to Longford for one trip.

The pair, who met on the show and were runners up in the final, have spent a lot of time apart since leaving the villa.

Molly-Mae headed off to Los Angeles for a week as part of a £500,000 deal with with PrettyLittleThing, and Tommy was in Scotland when she returned.

The pair lost the £50,000 cash prize to Greg O'Shea and Amber Gill, with many fans arguing that they should have nabbed the prize considering they're the only official couple.

It's happened to many of us…we're travelling to the most Instagram-able spots in the world, yet there's nobody to take photos of us in all our cultured glory.

Whether it's Niagara Falls, the Colosseum of Rome or the white sand beaches in Bali, sometimes a great candid is all we crave. Why waste the opportunity?

If your own significant other can barely hold a camera, or if you're a single solo traveller, finding somebody to capture us at our finest moment can be tedious at best. 

Not all of us have a John Legend to work his magic on the lens for the sake of our followers:

Luckily for us, specialist tour operators Roma Experience are now (hilariously) offering an Instagram boyfriend to follow you around all day and get those #travelgoals snaps you've always wanted.

They spotted a gap in the market, that's for sure. Their timing couldn't be better, seeing as social media is playing a massive role in the lives of global youth.

Instagram is even acting as an influential factor in choosing a travel destination, with a ludicrous 40.1% of millennials deeming the site an important factor when considering a holiday. My God, what have we become?

The Roma Experience's 'boyfriend of Instagram' is sure to be a sell-out, offering the unsung heroes of 'likes' to women (and fellow men) from every corner of the world. Bless them.

The Instagram Boyfriend has become an obsession in its own right, with countless pages dedicated to the men who play their part in giving a partner the PERFECT shot for the feed.

Not all heroes wear capes, just selfie sticks.

The wonderful service allows travellers to hire a profesh photographer to join them on their tour for three hours, taking pictures of them around some of the most picturesque Italian sites the gorgeous country has to offer.

You will then be emailed the iconic new pictures of you at your fiercest, fresh and ready for the gram. Or just your fridge?

The service is an additional €350 on top of the price for the full-day tour of Rome, but can you put a price on insta-worthy images? Hell no. It's 2019, this is our lifestyle now people.

Roma Experience’s Full Day Tour of Rome and Vatican City costs from €643, including all entrance fees, and private transfer from the city centre to the Vatican. The photographic service is an option extra, priced at €355.


Millennials don't exactly get an easy time; most people hate us or just dismiss us as snowflakes who only have knowledge about wi-fi and avocado toast.

While we generally have more of a penchant for the internet seeing as we GREW UP WITH IT… this doesn't mean we're as lazy and vain as everyone says we are.

For example, we only have three selfie sticks and check our reflections between the hours of 9am and 11pm everyday, so what's the big deal about?

We've all heard the lectures from our elderly relatives about how we drain the economy and refuse to get jobs, but people love to focus on the negatives rather than the positives.

Getting a millennial a Christmas gift can be a challenge, seeing as the chances of them being vegan, supporting paraben-free and cruelty-free produce and generally hipster and full of notions are sky high.

They'll also most likely blog the entire gift opening session, and post every aspect of it to social media, so it's gotta be impressive.

We've made a gift guide especially to help you out this festive season, y'all are welcome.

Over the six days that have followed the Grenfell Tower tragedy, politicians, press, high-profile personalities and members of the public have flocked to the scene of a fire which has thus far claimed the lives of 79 people.

And while the vast majority sought to provide support, assistance and reassurance in the aftermath of the blaze, it appears a small number are under the impression the scene of the tragedy is some sort of macabre tourist attraction.

As emergency services continue to sift through debris and families are informed of their loved one's passing, members of the public are using the opportunity to take selfies in the midst of the tragedy.

With a worrying number of people choosing to photograph themselves in front of the building's remains, residents have felt compelled to hang posters which urge the public to consider their actions in the wake of such a tragedy.

"Grenfell a tragedy not a tourist attractions. #selfies," read one poster.

Speaking to CNN, a resident of the area revealed the extent of the issue, saying: "It was such a disgrace to see people taking selfies with the tower behind them, thinking it was OK to do that in front of residents and people who lost their loved ones in the fire."

"It broke my heart to see people all dressed up like it was (the Notting Hill) Carnival and guys trying to get girls' phone numbers," he added.

Weighing in on the current discussion, Twitter users have wasted no time berating people who choose to take photographs at the scene of utter devastation, with one writing: "In the 15, or 16 years after 9/11, people just want to have their "Proof that I was there." self taken photos. What a souvenir."

The death toll currently stands at 79.



We're ALL guilty of the odd selfie or two, right?

Your mother, brother and probably even your granny have taken one or two in their lifetimes, but as it turns out, there's only three separate groups of selfie takers out there.

Yep, Brigham Young University published a study in the Visual Communication Quarterly which looked into why people take selfies.

To conduct the study, the researchers "employed a Q-method analysis to quantitatively and qualitatively identify why archetypical motivations exist among individuals who take and share selfies".

According to the researchers, the three different types are; communicators, autobiographers and self-publicists. We bet you want to know which one you are now…

Are you a… Communicator?



A photo posted by , Joanne (@ladygaga) on

Communicators, like Lady Gaga, share selfies as a way to connect with their followers. For them, it's all about two-way communication and getting a message across.


Are you a… Autobiographer?


A photo posted by Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) on

Autobiographers use seflies to keep track of their life and share cool experiences. Just like Lena Dunham, they don't require feedback from their followers and will post a selfie just because they like it.


Are you a… Self-Publicist?


A photo posted by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

Ah, the Kylie Jenners of this world. And hey, there's nothing wrong with that. Self-Publicists share seflies so their followers can see a positive, specific outlook of their life. They post frequently and always hope to present themselves in the best light.

Found the category you fit into?

The authors of the study actually think it's very important to take selfies, because "years from now, our society's visual history is going to be largely comprised of selfies."

Get snappin' ladies.



Since Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth got back together, they've been very quiet on social media, and even struggle to answer general questions about their other half in interviews and on TV.

But it looks like that could soon be changing because this Christmas, they are totally living it up – and most importantly, are posting pictures on social media for all of us to see (score!).

A few days ago, Liam hopped into the Cyrus family picture, but now they're taking NUMEROUS selfies and we just love it so much.

They look SO happy together, and we hope they enjoy every festive season just as much as they enjoyed this one.

Just look at the dressed up as Mr and Mrs Claus!

Too cute.


Parents copying their child's social media photos is nothing new.

Many mothers and fathers have taken to their own social media pages to show them doing the same pose or wearing the same clothes as their younger beings, and honestly, we think it's all good fun.

But the latest parent that's catched onto the trend is getting major backlash for it.

Chris Burr Martin, who is a comedian and podcaster over in the US has been copying his daughter, Cassie, for a few months now, and his following has doubled because of it.


A photo posted by Burr Martin (@therealburrmartin) on

Looking at Instagram, Cassie is all for it, even sharing the photos on her own social media pages and posting pics with her dad reading books like I'm On The Internet, What Now?. However, people on Facebook have different ideas.

One FB user said under an article about the family, "I think the girl looks adorable and her father is mocking her instead of supporting her. It's not funny, this is kind of sad."

However, on the other end, another person argued, "I think it's fun. Obviously they have had a 'talk' and she knows what he's doing so clearly there's some humour in all this."

Another backed up that point saying, "I think the both of them are awesome. They make a good father daughter team.

"The only laughing stock are the envious haters on either end. She's cool, he's hilarious, they're having fun."

Some people are very serious about their views, just look at the comments above. What side are you on?



We all know that when it comes to Kylie Jenner, less is most definitely NOT more.

For the 19-year-old Calabasas-native, more is more, and that's it.

Unlike the vast majority of celebrities who tend to dress down when chilling out in private, Kylie embraces the celebrity approach of the 1980s, and goes hell for leather when it comes to maintaining her image.

Whether she's chilling on a boat or celebrating her boyfriend's son's birthday, Kylie doesn't let that famous image slip for even a second.

And while the rest of the world questioned the placement of Tyga's hand in a recent selfie, we found ourselves focusing on other details in the photo.

1. Is Kylie's leotard a hand-me-down from Cher Horowitz and her PE-allergic crew?

2. Is it just us or did Tyga get a pretty bangin' pink manicure in honour of his son's big day?

3. How much is that bag in the background and how do we get our hands on it?

And if that pic wasn't enough for us to feast our eyes on, Kylie then got to snappin' King Cairo's Ferrari-themed day, and even more questions started being asked.

1. Did they take a leaf out of Joey Tribbiani's book by allowing a Ferrari to throw up on them? 

2. Was 'dress like the promo peeps' a requirement on the invite?

3. How long will it be before all the kids are rocking white leotards and backward baseball caps?



Some take dozens a day and others opt for a more minimal approach, but there are very, very few amongst us who don't indulge in the odd selfie from time to time.

And it turns out this little habit, which older generations literally can't get their heads around, is pretty good for us.

Exploring the phenomenon during a recent study, researchers at the University of California established that taking selfies has a positive effect on the individual's mental health.

Using 41 students – 28 female and 13 male – psychologists analysed the group's day to day routine for four weeks and requested that participants – in the first week – make note of their mood and the time or event which influenced it at least three times a day.

In the three weeks which followed the introductory period, students were required to take a photo each time they made note of their mood change.

Dividing the group into three, one were instructed to take a smiling selfie, another were asked to snap a place or object which brought them joy while the third were asked to take a photo of something that would make someone else happy before sending it to them.

Researchers soon established that the group which indulged in multiple selfie shoots over the course of three weeks were happier and more confident than their fellow participants.

And that's all we need to know.



Look we'll admit it, we're partial to a selfie or two.

And when we're with our friends, we're even more partial.

Oh, we're well aware we look like a pack of dopes when we've the phone hovering above our heads and we're giving our best Gigi, but that generally doesn't stop us.

Although, according to one woman from the States, it definitely should.

Taking to social media for a fairly epic rant, Susanna lamented today's selfie-obsessed youth, and does a fairly accurate version of most of us trying to find the perfect Insta profile.

Susanna, we see your point and we're totally guilty, but we're not stopping.




Ladies, it's time to put the phones down and listen up as top dermatologists have said that taking selfies can cause wrinkles.

According to The Telegraph, experts believe that regularly exposing our faces to light and radiation from smartphones is making us age faster.

And the effects selfie-taking can have on the skin is so bad, doctors can even tell which hand a person holds their phone in from checking the side of their face that is most damaged.

London-based doctor Simon Zoakei said: “Those who take a lot of selfies and bloggers should worry.”

“Even the blue light we get from our screens can damage our skin," he added.

And Dr Zoakei said wearing suncream isn't enough to protect skin from the harmful rays our beloved phones are emitting.

He said: “I think there is a gap in the market for products which protect because I know there are people who take lots of selfies, and bloggers who come to me and I have seen that there is damage there.”

“It's a different wavelength of radiation so sunscreen will not block it.”

The warning has been repeated by Dr Zein Obagi of the Obagi Skin Health Institute in Beverley Hills who said selfie taking causes a “dull dirty looking texture that you cannot identify on one side of the face”.

Dr Obagi suggested that saturating the skin with anti-oxidants could help prevent damage.

He said: “I think we need to create a defence mechanism, light has some sort of magnetic think that is happening to the skin."

“This magnetic field is altering the minerals in the skin. A sunscreen will not protect you."

"But if you saturate your skin with anti-oxidants it can help prevent DNA damage from electronic devices.”

Time to break out the Vitamin E!


Her lips used to be, well, so natural.

Yes – let's for a moment think back to 2010 Lauren Goodger. Fresh-faced (in an Essex kinda way) and on the arm of one Mark Wright, the reality TV star found her fame and fortune on Towie

But how times have changed. Along with losing a significant amount of weight throughout 2015, Ms Goodger this year has furthermore embraced a brand new habit: that of pouting for a series of endless selfies.

And while there's no denying that the loved-up 29-year-old looks fantastic, her latest offering (after rocking THOSE eyebrows at the gym) has proven to be been the final straw for some of her weary fans.


Brrrrrr face #tues #cold #hmmm

Many urged her to stay away from fillers – saying she looked ridiculous. "You are a natural beauty without the lips. You have a beautiful natural smile.xxx" offered one observer in response to yesterday evening's Instagram post.

Others were more direct, however: "No way?! Surely she's hasn't done that to her face?!!! Lauren have a chat with Lesley Ash. #trout."

A third commentator remarked: "She's ruined with that s*** in her lips. She will look back on these pics one day and cringe – so pretty without those awful lips."

Still, in honour of what can only be described as a killer pout, SHEmazing! brings you Lauren Goodger's top six duckface selfies. Enjoy!
