Inbetweeners’ James Buckley rakes in £80,000 recording personal videos for fans

James Buckley has earned around £80,000 recording personalised messages for fans.

The 33-year-old actor played the hilarious schoolboy Jay Cartwright in hit TV show The Inbetweeners, and viewers clearly can't get enough.

In particular, fans like him to film his memorable "bus w***er" line from the E4 series – which followed four students as they navigated teenage life.

Cameo allows fans to fill out a form with their requests for a minute-long clip from their chosen celebrity.

Big names like Snoop Dogg and Mike Tyson also flog their services on the greetings site Cameo.

But James, who charges £41.50, has received 1,868 five-star reviews – more than any other global celeb.

James wrote on Cameo: "Maybe you want me to propose to your significant other ‘Jay style’ or perhaps you just want me to call someone bus w***er?"

One reviewer, who paid for a message, wrote: "My girlfriend loved it. Thank you."

The news comes after James boasted earlier in the year that comedy show The Inbetweeners would be "nothing" without him.

During the coronavirus lockdown, he let rip at his co-stars Simon Bird (Will McKenzie), Joe Thomas (Simon Cooper) and Blake Harrison (Neil Sutherland).

In the live chat with his followers, he boasted: "I am the f***ing Inbetweeners.

"Take a second and try and imagine that TV show without me in it? You can’t, can you?

"People call me Jay. It doesn’t really bother me, it isn’t a billion miles away from my actual name."

Adding more fuel to the fire, James revealed that he has never ever watched anything that his co-stars have been in since The Inbetweeners.

He said: "I don’t watch Friday Night Dinner, I didn’t watch Fresh Meat. Blake’s got a new show (Kate & Koji) out at the minute on ITV as well, which actually looks really good, it looks really fun.

"But I probably won’t watch it. love those guys and they’re my best friends pretty much.

"But if I sit there and watch Blake in a TV show, I’ll just be going, ‘Oh, there’s Blake’.

"It’s like Simon Bird in Friday Night Dinner or Joe in Fresh Meat or something. I wouldn’t be able to enjoy what I was watching, because I’d just be distracted because there’s some person that I know on the TV. I’m still not used to that," he added.
