POP duo Right Said Fred have been mocked for charging £182 for a personal video message — six times the fee of better-known entertainers.
Fred Fairbrass, 57, and brother Richard, 67, are flogging two-minute clips on website Hi Note.

Included is a pared-down version of one of their hits, such as I’m Too Sexy or Deeply Dippy.
Simon Gregson — Corrie’s Steve McDonald — charges £30 and comic Paul Chuckle asks £35.
Cold Feet actor John Thomson and Inbetweeners star James Buckley charge £40.
One Right Said Fred fan said: “The brothers are asking an awful lot.
“I think they should reconsider. There are people more famous offering clips for less.”

During lockdown the pair have proved controversial and attended an anti-lockdown protest in London last year. But they said they attended because it was more about protecting free speech and saving rights.
They have denied they are Covid-deniers but defend the right of people to express that view.
This week they shared a message on Twitter which said the mainstream media was the greatest threat to humanity.
