Take a deep breath, this is how much money YouTube sensation Zoella is making a month

YouTube sensation Zoella made nearly £50,000 a month in 2014, company accounts have revealed.

The vlogger-turned-author registered profits of £397,770 in the eight months to November 2014, according to records filed with Companies House.

The 25-year-old, whose real name is Zoe Sugg, is the only registered shareholder of the company, meaning all the funds go directly to her.

Zoella rose to fame with her popular fashion and beauty videos on YouTube, gaining 10 million subscribers since she began in 2009 and garnering a whopping 17 million views on her most popular video, a “seven second challenge” with fellow star Miranda Sings.

She became a best-selling author in 2014, with her debut book Girl Online selling 78,109 copies in seven days and making it the fastest-selling debut novel since records began.

She has since diversified more, launching her own range of bath and beauty products in September 2014 and even appearing in charity reboot single Do They Know It’s Christmas? for Band Aid 30 the same year.

She has made YouTube domination a family affair, with her brother Joe (aka ThatcherJoe) on six million subscribers and her boyfriend Alfie Deyes (PointlessBlog) at nearly five million.

Zoella and Alfie, 22 – nicknamed Zalfie by fans – live together in a five-bedroom home worth a reported £1 million in Brighton.

They have become so popular among young fans that they even led a waxwork exhibition at Madame Tussauds last year, an honour normally reserved for A-listers.
