It often seems like the entirety of TikTok content comes out of creator houses based in Los Angeles like the Hype House, Sway House, or Clubhouse.
It’s important to remember that with the app comes an infinite amount of creativity and from many different locations around the world. Here, we’ve broken down a list of five TikTokers based in the UK who you may not have heard of, but you definitely should be watching.
