Cast your mind back to the noughties; it's the first phase of internet celebrity, and a blonde socialite becomes an overnight sensation thanks to a reality TV show.

Paris Hilton wrote the book on being a star in the digital age. Then her lesser known, darker-haired former bestie Kim Kardashian followed the formula, roped in her entire family, hopped on the crest of the social media wave and blew her out of the water.
