Alfie Deyes Just Called Out Fans' Parents For Encouraging Them To Intrude On His Life

The line has been crossed.
Alfie Deyes has some choice words for parents of fans, who regularly turn up at the house he shares with Zoë Sugg to ask for pictures.
In an interview with The Telegraph, Alfie spoke out against parents who allows their kids to cross the line and intrude on his and Zoe's privacy.
"Every single day, parents drive their kids over – and the adults are the ones who get annoyed when we say we won’t do pictures," he said.
"They lift their kids onto the walls around our house, and throw stuff over. I’m always polite, but the way I see it, not even my mum turns up uninvited."
Back in February, Zoë Sugg and Alfie Deyes were forced to move house after the public discovered their address.
It's a problem that the pair have been dealing with since at least 2015, when they took to Twitter vent their frustration at fans and their parents.
Love going into our garden to see people and even MUMS leaning over our wall to look into the house...— Alfie Deyes (@PointlessBlog) March 31, 2015
I know that nobody means harm & I'm not angry.It's just, yanno, one minute your shaving your armpits & the next there's viewers at your door— Zoella (@Zoella) April 10, 2015
Alfie revealed that parents often lost their tempers when he would refuse pictures while being hounded at home.
“People actually knock on our door,” he told The Telegraph. “Every single day, parents drive their kids over – and the adults are the ones who get annoyed when we say we won’t do pictures."
Alfie also revealed the struggle of balancing personal vlogging with maintaining some semblance of a private life. He admits: “I value my personal relationships, so am always super-cautious about how much I show of us. It’s always on my mind. We [he and Zoë] never kiss on camera or anything like that.”
“There’s a very fine line between me filming my life and me living my life.”
