His videos bring laughter and joy to million across the nation — Alfie Deyes is no ordinary 21-year-old!

Alfie Deyes & The Pointless Book 2
“Book one was a bit of a random idea that came together…it went down so well, not only with my viewers but general people also liked it, so with book two, we’ve just taken it a step further,” Aflie told us.
“The second book has a lot more content that you can’t find anywhere but the app– it thinks with the book. You can scan the pages of the book with the app, it’s really really cool!”
We got our hands on a copy here in the HollywoodLife office and we gotta say, it’s awesome!
Alfie Opens Up About Cyber-Bullying
With nearly 4 million subscribers on his PointlessBlog YouTube channel, there’s gotta be some unwanted and hurtful comments right? “I am lucky enough to not get a lot of hate on YouTube,” Alfie explained.
“I think it’s especially hard for people who vlog and are really true to themselves, because if somebody was to comment on a video of mine, they aren’t criticizing my videos but they are criticizing my life,” Aflie explained.
“For me personally, I don’t really get affected, I can read any comment about me in the world and it wouldn’t really bother me because I don’t know the person and I know they wouldn’t say it to my face if they saw me in the streets,” he went on.
“I know that a lot of people can get really hurt by their comments, people brush it off like ‘oh it doesn’t matter, they have millions of subscribers, they get so many nice comments I’m sure they don’t care,’ but it is bullying.”
If You Could Collab With Anyone, Who Would It Be?
“I would love to do a collab with Taylor Swift, she seems so fun,” Alfie gushed! OMG — that really would be the best collab!
We asked Alfie if he ever got the chance to collab with the queen herself, what kind of video would he make? “Maybe like Taylor Swift does my makeup, let her make me look silly! Or her teach me how to dance or something funny!”
We would totally watch that video about 100 times!
A growing number of subscribers, two best-selling books, daily vlogs, YouTube conventions, merchandise — what’s next for Alfie?!
“There are so many crazy opportunities coming up…I just to make sure whatever I am doing is awesome for my viewers and we’re just going to have a really cool journey together. I just want to my make my videos the best they can be. I want to step up my videos and make them the best they can be,” Aflie concluded.
Don’t forget to pick up a copy of Alfie’s new book The Pointless Book 2 out in the U.S. on April 7!
