We're just over here, self distancing and dancing.

In these isolating times, we’re all looking for ways to keep ourselves entertained and it seems as though TikTok is proving to be extremely popular for passing the time.
Between its constant flow of engaging content that spans from dance routines to lip syncing challenges, cookery demos to fitness workouts, more and more people are turning over to the app and we’re totally hooked (let it be known that we said that while hitting the woah!)
Having launched in September 2016, TikTok has 500 million active users worldwide – with the app having been downloaded over 1.5 billion times in the past four years. Therefore we can see it’s no longer just a fun tool used by Gen-Zers (although they still rule the roost), but TikTok is now an entity for brands to make money and people with dancing or singing skills to garner some fame *hits the woah again*.
Last night we saw Hailey Bieber become the latest star to join TikTok, sharing her first video with husband, Justin Bieber, the pair danced to Slidegang by Lil Jackie and NATURALLY, the video now has over six million views.

And so, as we’re hitting follow on Mrs Biebs account, here are nine other people we’d suggest checking out on the app.
Easily one of the biggest TikTokers on the block right now, Charli might only be 15-years-old (yes, she was born in 2004 gasp!) but she’s certainly one to get following for her catchy 15 second dance routines, 90s outfits and incredible song choice.
Charli has over 37 million followers on the app and is the platforms 3rd most followed person.
Jessica Alba has proved to us time and time again that she’s the coolest momma on the block and now, with over two million TikTok followers, she’s certainly proving her street cred.
Follow her for BTS videos from movie sets and cute mother-daughter moments.
If you were obsessed with Dance Moms on Lifetime circa 2012/2013 then you might remember this little star who is no longer so little but still very much a star.
Mackenzie Ziegler is the little sister to Maddie Ziegler (Sia’s music video protégé) and she has now paved her own way with a very successful TikTok channel.
Mackenzie has over 15.8 million followers and her TikTok is full of dance routines you can learn while not stepping a foot outside the house (key for these times!)
Where Lizzo goes, we follow. And so, we’re thrilled to announce that the Good As Hell singer is very TikTok active, posting videos that’ll make you laugh, stan harder than ever before and generally smile as her content is just as catchy as her music.
And speaking of people who are just a positive ray of light, Bobby Berk from Queer Eye is also one to get on your TikTok feed STAT.
Sharing videos and clips of all the Fab Four, Bobby posts inspirational messages, funny clips and generally gas content that we’re eating up.
Bobby has 55.6k followers on the platform.
Repeat after me: Jasonnnn Deruloooooo.
Although we might have slightly lost faith in Jason Derulo after his performance in CATS, we’re going to look past that because his TikTok is flames emoji and his dancing is bringing us right back to 2010 when Ridin’ Solo was our jam following chaotic teenage breakups.
As the most followed star on TikTok, Loren Gray is leading the way with over 2.3 billion likes and a staggering 40 million followers.
Off the back of TikTok, the star has now forged a really successful music career and is signed to both Virgin and Capitol Records.
If you want to learn how to win at TikTok, it’s best to follow the best.
If you want to add a little bit of easy home exercise into your life, Blogilates is the account you need to follow.
With 14-day workout plans, ways to workout at home during COVID19 and easy fat burning techniques, we’re addicted to Cassey Ho and her active feed. Follow her over on Blogilates YouTube here too.
And lastly, to tick off every box, The Internet Chef is the last account you need to be following. Sharing quick and easy recipes to see you through the week, The Internet Chef knows how to whip up any dish with just a couple of ingredients.
From tasty homemade guac to curried potatoes and cheesy pasta, you’ll be drooling your way into the kitchen and thanking us later.
Now, we’ll woah in peace and leave you to it.
