Roya Zeitoune, head of YouTube trending, EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa), told the PA news agency: “I think the standout feature of this year’s lists is variety.

“There’s a really interesting mix of established YouTube creators, such as Sidemen, James Charles and Hot Ones, as well as traditional media who are developing content that’s perfectly suited for the platform – for example, Sky Sports highlights packages edited specifically for YouTube or viral content from the likes of James Corden.”
