With over four million followers across her combined social channels, Saffron Barker, is a 19-year old force to be reckoned with. Her sparkling personality exudes through every lifestyle, beauty, fashion and challenge videos she religiously uploads, never disappointing her fan base.
Starting her channel in 2015 whilst on a family holiday, she began filming her videos on her phone whilst looking for a new way to fulfil her passion for entertaining. Leaving school after her GCSEs and with her channel rapidly growing, Saffron went full time with a career in social media and hasn’t looked back.
Her popularity and the internet’s demand for more Saffron, has seen her branch out in to merchandise, release her own Sunday Times number-one bestselling book and collaborate on three successful homeware ranges with Primark. Her highly engaged UK audience has led to a number of successful brand collaborations and campaigns with major global brands such as Disney, Missguided and Urban Decay.
Alongside all her social media and commercial deals Saffron is a supporter of several charities such as Make A Wish, who she ran the London Landmarks Half Marathon for this year. She also completed the London Marathon in Spring 2019, running for Dementia Revolution in memory of her Great-Grandad Ted.
2019 was Saffron’s biggest commercial year to date. Her dream of competing on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing became a reality, where her abilities as a natural born performer, coupled with hard work and dedication saw her make it to week 10 of the show with partner AJ Pritchard, confirming her place on the UK mainstream talent circuit. She then joined the nationwide Strictly Come Dancing Tour in early 2020, and shortly after was announced as the face of skincare brand Biore.
