Gousto explores UK food scene in Cookstarter campaign launch

Katherine Ryan, like many comedians, has taken to TikTok to spread positivity amid lockdown. However, the comedian has since admitted some of her videos have been taken down for violating guidelines on the social media app.

TikTok has become one of the most popular social media platforms as many have joined the app to escape lockdown.

While chatting to Express.co.uk, Katherine has opened up on how she joined TikTok under her daughter Violet’s guidance. 

She explained: “That was down to my manager and my 11-year-old daughter Violet.

“She was like, ‘You have to be on TikTok, you have to be a creator on TikTok’.”

Some of Katherine’s posts on the app have seen her perform dance routines as well as giving insights to her lockdown life.

The star even dedicated a dance post to her daughter Violet as she performed to pop song Ready or Not by Bridgit Mendler.

She captioned the post at the time: “Hi Violet! We are really proud of you – hope you like my TOK.”

The comedian went on to joke that while she has been active on the platform, she is not really sure what she is meant to post.

She continued: “I think it’s fun on TikTok, but I don’t necessarily get it. I’m not really sure what videos I’m meant to put up.”

As she spreads laughter on her page, she went on to admit that she has had some video’s taken down for “violating the community guidelines”.

Katherine explained: “And then some of my videos get taken down for violating the community guidelines and then I see an eight-year-old throwing it back to some rap song with, like, foul language that I don’t even use… 

“I don’t really understand community guidelines so I need to study up on those.”

On the app, Katherine has since amassed more than 300,000 followers.

However, Katherine also joked about her comedic friends joining TikTok, adding: “You don’t want to see us all become TikTokers we don’t have the abs for it.”

Elsewhere, Katherine has partnered up with Gousto in their Cookstarter campaign which aims to support independent restaurants across the UK after many have risked permanent closure as a result of the pandemic.

Talking of the campaign, Katherine said: “I found that heartbreaking to see our local high streets change so much during lockdown. 

“I consider myself a real self-starter entrepreneur, and so I want to see those grafters really thrive.

“I was so excited to see the Gousto Cookstarter initiative and it’s just such a great way of celebrating the variety of Britain’s diverse food culture and give that much needed positive support to independent restaurants.”

Gousto’s Cookstarter campaign supports the UK’s vibrant food scene with 50k funding for independent restaurants, year-long business support and limited-edition recipes on the menu. Visit: goustocookstarter.co.uk
