Who is Joe Sugg? Zoella’s younger brother with eight million YouTube subscribers

Wait, is he… hot?


Joe Sugg aka. ThatcherJoe, is the first YouTube "celebrity" to be going on Strictly Come Dancing, but who is the 26-year-old with eight million YouTube followers?

Joe Sugg is a British YouTuber, film-maker, author and vlogger from Wiltshire. He has three YouTube channels called ThatcherJoe, ThatcherJoeVlogs and ThatcherJoeGames. Across those channels, he does pranks, challenges and impressions.

He's also Zoella's brother, but we're happy to announce he's a lot more palatable than her and her boyfriend Alfie.

Joe Sugg's channel is called ThatcherJoe because he always wanted to become a roof thatcher

Joe Sugg started his career by doing the job of a roof thatcher, which is why he named all his YouTube channels ThatcherJoe. He didn't go to university after finishing his A-Levels and instead did a roof thatching apprenticeship.
