The social media platform quickly became a popular subscription-based service for adult entertainers during lockdown – allowing them to make money from their (often scantily-clad, sometimes nude) pictures and performances online.
So, imagine the world's shock in August 2021 when OnlyFans suddenly announced it would be banning NSFW or 'sexually explicit' content – and also creating a new 'safe for work' app called OFTV.
To be fair, OnlyFans was never a get-rich-quick scheme, but it could be used to make good money and provide up-and-coming models increasing (ahem) exposure .
It's also been an incredibly useful promotional platform for Hollywood stars, British celebrities and other traditionally-famous talent, using the platform to push their creative projects.'
Former Disney Channel actress Bella Thorne has proved that the platform isn't just about selling intimate photos to fans – after making a staggering $2 million (£1.5 million) in one week after creating her OnlyFans account, all the while insisting she will not be going nude.
So, Bella loves it, but which other stars have signed up to platform too?

Aside from Bella Thorne , a whole host of celebrities both in the UK and across of the pond have created OnlyFans accounts.

Fans were shocked and excited when when she name-dropped the app and 'demon time' in her verse on the remix of Megan Thee Stallion's rap Savage.
