The Inbetweeners star James Buckley says he has made over £1m from the Cameo website and claims to have made more than 40,000 personalised videos for fans.

The actor and YouTuber initially joined Cameo, a website where fans can pay for a personalised video from a celebrity, in early 2020 and has since gone on to become one of the most popular stars on the platform.

In a recent podcast interview with Spender Matthews, Buckley detailed the enormous amount of videos he has made for fans: "I have done tens of thousands. Tens and tens of thousands, maybe thirty, forty thousand, something like that."

Matthews responds: "You're a Cameo-millionaire", which Buckley affirms with a nod.

He also admitted it was a great thing for him financially and why he only charges £40 per video: "It was a godsend financially. But I never wanted to take the p***. I'm in the business of making people happy. I don't want to rip people off."

Buckley previously made a video for Oldham council to promote COVID-19 guidelines and to try and help stop the spread of the virus.

Buckley is estimated to get around 40 video requests per day on the platform which is used by some of the biggest stars in the world such as Brian Cox, Lindsay Lohan and Elijah Wood. Jaws legend Richard Dreyfuss, Robert Englund and Miami Vice star Don Johnson also have accounts.

Since the end of The Inbetweeners over a decade ago, Buckley went on to star in BBC sitcom White Gold alongside fellow Inbetweeners star Joe Thomas.

He has also appeared in an episode of Doctor Who and made his West End debut in 2:22 A Ghost Story where he performed alongside Giovanna Fletcher and Stephanie Beatriz.

Buckley is also a popular star on YouTube where he documents his family life in At Home with The Buckleys.
