For this week’s round-up of recommended videos, we’ve put together a mix of everything: stuff for you to switch off and enjoy your weekend with, like Zoella’s book club video and Tessa Violet’s Twenty One Pilot’s cover; but also an important upload from Hannah Hart in response to the attacks of this week.
