Two dogs become more famous than their DJ owner

A successful DJ who toured the US with electro pop star Charli XCX fears that with their 32,100 Instagram followers, personal showbiz agents and advertising contracts, her pet pooches have eclipsed her fame.

A few months ago, Laura Bettinson, 32, who is also a music producer, told her own agent that she would "quit music" if her dogs, Shih Tzu Chihuahua-cross Bullet and Pekingese-cross Bing, attracted more Instagram followers than she has. But with them only needing 101 to overtake her, she has now withdrawn her pledge.
