YouTube sensation Zoella already has over 6.6 million YouTube subscribers, and now she’s conquered the old-fashioned world of print as well.
The online vlogger has become the fastest-selling debut novelist since records began, beating the likes of JK Rowling and 50 Shades author EL James to the top spot with her book Girl Online.
24-year-old Zoe Sugg – known to her fans as Zoella – sold more than 78,000 copies of her book in just one week, making it both a record-breaking debut novel and the fastest-selling hardback of 2014.
As well as her six million-plus YouTube subscribers, Zoella has over two and a half million Twitter followers and three and a half million followers on Instagram.
She started her fashion, make-up and lifestyle vlog five years ago, and since then her videos have racked up over 300 million views.
Compared to those numbers, 78,000 books seem like small fry.
