For most of us lockdown has been a boring, frustrating and uneventful time, however for some celebrities and influencers it’s been a chance to make some serious bank.

Research by Attain revealed the top 10 celebrities making the most money during lockdown are Vicky Pattinson, Olivia Bowen and Marnie Simpson. Most of the influencers are making over £150k during the 10 week lockdown period from sponsored posts on Instagram. Where do I apply to become an influencer?

The majority of the celebrities’ ads are for clothing companies such as Boohoo and In The Style, however some have been making money from promoting dressing gowns for dogs, and most importantly VKs.

These are the celebs who have made the most from Instagram during lockdown:
