A SOCIAL media influencer from Barrhead is to star in a new reality television show.

Molly McFarlane, who has more than 200,000 followers on Instagram, will feature on The Reel Life, to be broadcast on the BBC Scotland channel next year.

It will take audiences behind the scenes of Scotland’s biggest influencer agency, Aquarius Creative.

The agency of 20 influencers is run by entrepreneurs Kirsten Cameron and Amy Moore, who are set on expanding their brand to a global level.

Other well-known social media personalities who will be joining 25-year-old Molly on the show include Megan Welsh, Maggie Smith, Abbie Blyth and Abigail Comrie.

As well as enjoying success as a YouTuber and Instagrammer, she teamed up with fashion giant ASOS to launch her own Miss Molly x South Beach swimwear collection this summer.

The new TV series aims to capture the “extraordinary world” of a social media influencer, which includes glamorous trips around the world, freebies and exclusive parties.

It is being produced by IWC Media and will also be available on the BBC iPlayer.

Steve Allen, commissioning executive for BBC Scotland, said: “This new series will offer audiences a rarely-seen look into a world which has become so prevalent within today’s society.”

Laura Capaldi, executive producer for IWC, added: “ The real lives of the influencers, their agents, friends and family are fascinating to their hundreds of thousands of followers and we’re so excited to be able to show people what their lives are really like, behind the glitz and glamour.”

Last year, the Barrhead News told how Molly and her sister Ruby were on a mission to beat lockdown boredom through a fun podcast which generated an impressive online following.

The talented siblings dubbed the show ‘Sistur Sistur,’ to reflect the way they say the word in their Barrhead accent.

They covered everything from answering dilemmas raised by listeners to interviews with social media stars, as well as providing a funny take on everyday topics such as the mispronunciation of common words.

Molly said her favourite episode was Heartbreak Hotel, which involved a discussion on what it’s like to go through a break-up and how to deal with it.

She added: “It was just a personal one that blew up, connecting to so many people in the exact same position.”
