A couple who started selling saucy videos together online after a cancer scare now rake in up to £21k a month – and says it has made them "better parents".

The pair – who go by their stage names Jenn, 33, and Brad, 36, Hanniston – started an Only Fans account after Jenn, from Essex, was diagnosed with melanoma - a type of skin cancer in May 2020.

After surgery to remove the growth and getting the all-clear, Jenn wanted to "embrace life" and signed-up to the site to make some extra cash.

Her husband, Brad, who was working as a roofer at the time, was supportive of the idea and even keen to give it a go with her.

The parents were stunned by the amount of money they made filming their romps and quit their day jobs to do it full-time.

The couple - who have been happily married for 10 years - said the job allows them to set their own hours and spend more time with their three kids.

Despite their success, the pair insist isn't not easy and say they have worked hard to build their followers.

Jenn, who was previously a drama student, said: “I got the cancer diagnosis in lockdown, and it was a bit eye opener.

"It really makes you re-evaluate your life and what you want to do.

“Why not do something we enjoy doing and make some money?

“We’ve always been a very open couple and keen to explore things together.

“The money is great but one of the best perks is spending more time with the kids.

"We spend more quality time together - it's made us better parents."

Jenn first spotted an unusual mole on the back of her calf in May 2020 that kept growing.

After several tests she was diagnosed with stage 1B melanoma.

Three months later, in August 2020, the growth was surgically removed and luckily, Jenn didn’t any further treatment.

But the discovery pushed her 're-evaluate' her life, and the things she wanted to explore doing – including starting an Only Fans account.

She said: “I have done some webcamming in the past, so I was comfortable being naked on camera.

“I heard about a friend doing Only Fans and I thought: 'Why not?'

“Seemed like a no-brainer money-wise so why not try it?

“You have one life, why not embrace it?"

When Jenn started her OnlyFans she began to rake in the cash - and when Brad saw how much money she was making, he decided to sign up with her.

Brad said: “We’re always on the same wave-length and a very open couple.

“I knew we’d work well as a team, so I was game to try it with her.

“We thought we’d make a few hundred and couldn't believe it went it crept into thousands."

The couple spend around four hours a day filming content for their OnlyFans page and TikTok account.

The saucier content is often filmed when kids out of the house - at school or nursery.

Jenn said: "One of the craziest requests we had was to pee on each other which we did.

"It was a very funny moment - as husband and wife, we can have fun and a laugh about it.

"But we draw the line at inviting anyone else in - that's not something we'd want to film and have out there."

During one of their best months, the couple made a whopping £21,000 together.

But the couple insist it isn’t “easy money” and have worked hard to build followers.

Brad said: “It’s taken a long time and a lot of graft to build followers and get to where we are now.

“Nowadays, you can’t just sell some pics of your feet at expect to make thousands.

“You have to give people the full shebang – it has to be worth it for them.

“Otherwise, people could just to Pornhub or get it for free.”

The couple said they're not shy about the job and will openly discuss it with anyone who asks.

Even their children are aware of what they do for a living, but they try and shield them from it as much as possible.

As well as running their OnlyFans account, the couple also produce comedic content for their TikTok page The Hannistons which has over 36.2m likes.

Jenn, who has a three-year-old with Brad, and two kids aged 13 and 16 from a previous relationship, said: "Friends and family all know what we do for a living - my mum is super supportive.

"But we try our best to keep our children off social media or knowing too much about it.

"There is a lot of stigma attached to doing a job like this.

"You need a really thick skin - especially as a woman.

"Some messages can be very pushy, so I can imagine it's a lot of pressure for a woman doing it alone.

"I feel very lucky in that sense that we're doing this together."

Brad added: “We’re a great support system for each other – staying strong and setting boundaries.

"Sometimes we film content at night when the kids are in bed, which some people have commented on.

"But I say, don't all parents have sex while their kids are in bed?

"We just have a camera there with us - we're actually a very vanilla couple.

"At the end of the day, we're not hurting anyway.

"We're having fun and enjoying ourselves and it's made a stronger couple."
