The Inbetweeners’ James Buckley close to earning £500,000 from 30-second videos

Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

The Inbetweeners star James Buckley is closing in on earning around £500,000 flogging 30-second video messages to fans.

He’s now received a staggering 2,621 five-star reviews from fans for his £41.25 “bus w***er” addresses.

In the last few days alone, he’s had 50 reviews added to his page – but only around a quarter of customers bother to leave a rating on the site.

That means his earnings stand at around £432,000.

James is second in the world bookings rankings on the site – ahead of huge celebrity names such as Snoop Dogg, Mike Tyson, Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen.

US The Office star Brian Baumgartner is top with 2,586 for his £145 messages and American comic Gilbert Gottfried – who asks £125 – is the third most popular with 2,065.

Sources at Cameo have revealed that Brian is the site’s biggest earning – raking in more than $1million so far this year.

But James is way behind in the cash stakes he charges far less.

He tells fans: “Actor, Jay – Inbetweeners. I’ll wish a friend happy birthday, maybe you want me to propose to your significant other “jay style” or perhaps you just want me to call someone busw***er?”

One person wrote: “Absolutely brilliant!! It was just what I wanted. Thank you so much James. I will be in his good books forever now.”

Another added: “Delivered on time. My girlfriend loved it. Thank you.”

James also films vlogs with his wife Clair Meek, who he married back in 2012, sharing a glimpse into their home behind closed doors.

The couple, who share two sons together, have been sharing funny videos of their lives during lockdown, with one of their latest ones showing James attempting some DIY.

Ever since finding fame as Jay on the Inbetweeners, which finished back in 2010, James has reportedly raked in a whopping net worth of $2million, according to site Celebrity Net Worth.
