These are the top 100 influencers in the UK, according to The Sunday Times

Where are the Love Islanders at?


The Sunday Times has released a list of their Top 100 influencers and the wildest twist is that it doesn't have ANY reality stars on it. At all. It's made up of mainly YouTubers.

No Love Island or TOWIE stars made the cut, despite many of them having gone on to become social media influencers. Justice for Megan Barton-Hanson.

Let's be honest, it's a pretty weird mix of people but here is the full list as follows:

Having a little moment where Iโ€™m really pleased with my self growth this year & wanted to share that with you all because Iโ€™m constantly encouraging positivity & telling you to make time & work on yourself FOR yourself, therefore you should also feel you can celebrate milestones, however big or small. I vowed this year to make a lot of changes to the way I lived my life. To give myself more time, mentally & physically. I said no a lot more to things I didnโ€™t feel would benefit my mind & said yes to things Iโ€™d usually have said no to. I started running, I gave less of a shit, I focused on things that brought me joy & let go of things that felt icky. I listened to my gut & I allowed myself to use my voice more (even if it felt uncomfortable) I got very good at carrying my big heavy โ€œonline shieldโ€ over the years, keeping my head up & carrying on whenever things got a bit much, but last year that shield shattered into thousands of pieces & I felt so exposed and vulnerable. There was no particular reason for this, I think it was just being worn down over the years. As someone who is so open about my mental health in order for others to feel less alone, I reached a point where I was keeping everything very close to my chest & not opening up at all (online or offline) & it very nearly broke me. I knew I needed to put my mental health first & make quite big adjustments. Itโ€™s hard to feel as though nobody understands you or what is going on inside your head, especially when you canโ€™t quite grasp it yourself, but I canโ€™t stress enough just how vital it is to make YOU the priority. There ARE people who understand, who feel the same things you do, who feel that same ache of โ€œI wish I didnโ€™t feel like thisโ€. However hard it might feel to make changes in your life, whether big or small, whether you realise what those are or not, Iโ€™m backing you all the way & youโ€™ve absolutely got this! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Iโ€™m the happiest Iโ€™ve been in a really long time, I still have my off days like everyone does but my on days are so much brighter! โ˜€๏ธ Thanks also to you, for always being so understanding, supportive & encouraging. I genuinely have the most amazing followers ๐Ÿงก TedTalk over! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Yesterday a group of us rocked up to Parliament to talk to the Government Equalities Office about body image, what the current reality is & how to create real change in the way people feel about themselves. We talked about how to make social media a safer place, the need for fatphobia to be recognised as a form of prejudice & how legislation could reflect this, eating disorders, male body image and how marginalised communities experience body image issues differently! I don't want to flex and make it sound like anything super radical was achieved (or make it look like I did more than I did – which was turn up somewhere and say some things), but I'm hoping it's the start of a much longer conversation that will ripple out and into actual change. And I'd love for you all to be part of that too! What change do you want to see? How do you think the government can get more involved on the issue of body image? What legislation do we need? It'd be great to be able to feedback to them & also learn more myself about where we can go from here! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒˆโ˜€๏ธ p.s. yes I wore a crop top to parliament fight me ๐ŸŒป โ€ข [image description: Megan is standing in an ornate room with statues, carved archways and paintings on the wall. She's wearing a rainbow pleated skirt with a white crop top and smiling while holding her arms out] #bodyimage #bodypositivity #edrecovery #bodyconfidence
