The Oompa Loompa 'Meth Lab' actress from Glasgow's catastrophic Willy Wonka event has joined Cameo after being prompted to do so by an unexpected celebrity fan: Chrissy Teigen.

In an Instagram Story, Teigen said: "Somebody get the Wonka meth lab girl on Cameo immediately—while it’s still hot. I need a Cameo."

For the blissfully unaware, Cameo is a platform that offers personalised messages from celebrities and people who have found internet fame, such as Kirsty Paterson.

Of course, Kirsty responded in a TikTok clip stunned at Teigen's request.

She later returned to the platform with a follow-up to announce she had joined Cameo – full Oompa Loompa uniform and all.

Hundreds flocked to the clip, praising Kirsty for making the most out of a bad situation. Even Heinz wanted in on the action, asking: "Can we do a collab?"

One person responded "But for £20?? Maybe a fiver," to which Kirsty quipped: "If you knew what I been through the past week you say charge more."

"Omg yes just ordered one as a surprise for my friend we’ve been obsessed," another added.

Meanwhile a third penned: "Yesss making the best of a bad (but funny) situation. You get that £££ girllll."

It comes after attendees jumped to Kirsty's defence for trying to make the event as positive as possible for children, whose families were missold an immersive day out at a chocolate factory.

"This queen did her best with those kids despite being a sh** show," one X/Twitter user wrote, while another humorously called her the "modern day Princess Diana."
