Cristiano Ronaldo

Famed footballer Cristiano Ronaldo takes the number two spot and the number one spot as most followed actual person on Instagram. Why? Well, his range of motivational tips, candid shots of his private life and action shots on the pitch seem to resonate with 375 Million people.

Lionel Messi

In the third spot with 288 Million followers is Argentine Captain and Paris Saint-Germain forward, Lionel Messi. While his page is mostly on-pitch action shots, there are the occasional family snap and brand partner campaign to enjoy too.

Anyone who knows the family brand will know what to expect - from breaking pregnancy news to showing her enormous closet - her followers are growing as quickly as her brood.

Dwayne Johnson

Just behind The Rock is Singer, Actress and all-round Super-star, Ariana Grande.

Selena Gomez

Another Singer and Actress who has faced her share of struggles, mainly a kidney transplant and depression, is Selena Gomez who sits snugly in at number seven with 278 Million followers.

It must be an interesting discussion over at the Kardashian compound when little sister Kylie, tells the one who started the families fame, Kim, she has nearly 20 Million more followers. But anyhoo, the soon to be ex-Mrs West uses her platform to sell her SKIMS, post updates of her growing family and push her political messages.


Pick our jaws off the floor with shock that Queen B is in at number nine, behind her rumoured rival, Kim K, by 46 Million followers. Well, it's true but she still boasts 222 Million followers who love updates on her Ivy Park brand, family shots of her and Jay Z and of course, shots on stage.
