Alfred Sidney Deyes is an English (British) YouTuber, vlogger and a book author. He was born on September 17, 1993 in Enfield, England. His current residence is in Brighton, East Sussex; where his parents moved when he was about four years old. In his teen years he enjoyed competitive gymnastics as a form of hobby.
After Varndean secondary school he attended Varndean College, but instead of staying at the college he took a year off the studies and went travelling. Later that same year, Deyes decided that he will not continue the college studies, but instead venture in the world of YouTube entertainment.
Since October 2012 he’s been in a romantic relationship with his colleague, YouTube content creator, Zoe Sugg, also known as Zoella. Alfie moved into a flat in London with his colleague Caspar Lee, but he eventually moved back to Brighton in the autumn of 2013.
Eventually, Deyes and his girlfriend Zoe moved into a house and bought a black pug dog, named Nala. In July 2015, the couple bought a much larger seven-room residence and renovated it, almost until 2017, when they decided to move in.
Deyes participated in a few charity events: he cooperated on the 2014 single „Do They Know It’s Christmas?“ as a part of the Band Aid 30 supergroup to raise funds for the Ebola virus epidemic in the regions of West Africa. Alfie was as well part of the „YouTube Boyband“, that raised funds for British charity organization Comic Relief.
His very first book, called The Pointless Book, was released on September 4, 2014. The book sold around 30,000 copies in 15 days, and it was even reviewed by The Guardian. Later on, Deyes published three more works of similar concept, making a Pointless Book series.
