Many are now just a tweet away, or post updates to Instagram showing you what their life away from the limelight is like. Cameo takes that a step further - an app that allows anyone to pay a famous person to record a custom message for them. You can request pretty much anything within reason, whether it's wishing someone happy birthday or a get well soon message, and the likes of Caitlyn Jenner, David Hasselhoff and Lindsay Lohan are all on the platform.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
