Birthplace Lacock, Wiltshire

Zoella – real name Zoe Sugg – was born to beautician mum Tracey and property businessman dad Graham in 1990. She has a brother called Joe.

Despite being a shy pupil, Zoe did well at school. At 10 years old she had her first taste of stardom when she and her classmates were extras in the first Harry Potter movie.

Zoe achieved all A grades in her A Levels and went on to start an apprenticeship with an interior design business.

Her life changed in 2009 when she started blogging, mainly writing about her favourite beauty products. Zoe started to gain lots of followers but admitted she was ‘terrified’ by the idea of branching out into YouTube videos.

The brunette star has been open about her battle with anxiety. She’s suffered from panic attacks since the age of 15.

Zoella – as she is known in the blogging world – finally started making YouTube clips in 2010 and her channel became a huge hit.

Her debut video, called 60 Things In My Bedroom, was a simple look at her room but has amassed over a million views.

Zoe became part of a growing vlogging community along with other YouTube favourites such as her best pal Louise Pentland aka Sprinkle Of Glitter and make-up artist Tanya Burr.

In 2013 Zoella started dating fellow YouTuber Alfie Deyes of the channel Pointless Blog. Their romance saw them dubbed ‘Zalfie’ and things progressed so well that in 2014 they moved in together in Brighton.

Her blogging fame has brought Zoe all sorts of exciting opportunities. The Wiltshire-born star released her debut novel Girl Online in November 2014 and she has also launched her own range of beauty products.

Zoe has won various awards and accolades for her blogging skills. She even made it into FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women In The World list in 2015, coming in at number 34.
