They told The Sun: “To go from £80 to almost double in a matter of days feels really misjudged in this environment.
“It’s like she’s cashing in, which is a real shame. I was prepared to pay £80 but to then advertise for £166 feels like a bit of a rip-off.”
Other celebrities advertising their services on Cameo include Amy Childs, who offers videos for £20.75 and RuPaul Drag Race contestant Cheryl Hole at £29.05.
