Funny mummy: Serena Terry doing TikTok videos as Mammy Banter

TikTok, known for its memes and trends, is believed to have one billion users worldwide. Following news of a potential ban in the US, Linda Stewart talks to local users who prove the hugely popular app isn't just for teenagers.

'Mums related to what I was saying and what I was doing'

Software company chief operations officer Serena Terry (34), from Londonderry, is a mum-of-two who is married to refuge worker Mark (35) and has amassed nearly 80,000 followers after posting short comedy videos as Mammy Banter after the start of lockdown.

"Like everybody else, it was lockdown, my daughter was using it and I kept seeing funny videos on Facebook and people sharing them. I opened up a bottle of wine one night and that was it," she says.
