So Zoella Is Now Really, Really Popular On YouTube

We’re sending HUGE congratulations to Zoella right now.

The 25-year-old vlogger has had some amazing news to celebrate this week – her YouTube channel now has a whopping 10 million subscribers! Pretty damn impressive, no?

To put this into context, Zoella – real name Zoe Sugg – is only the fourth British star to do this, following One Direction, YouTuber KSI and Adele.

‘Thank you for all your lovely messages, i am a big ball of smiles and gratitude right now.’

Her boyfriend Alfie Deyes – otherwise known as Pointless Blog – was just as thrilled, marking the occasion by dedicating one of his videos to his other half.
