The UK’s Sunday Times newspaper has released its annual list of the most influential people in Britain. Felix Kjellberg (PewDiePie) aka the most subscribed person on YouTube, multimedia superstar Zoe Sugg, beauty and lifestyle guru Tanya Burr and pop-culture kings Dan and Phil all made it on to the list. The list is not ranked, but rather names a number of people, in several categories, that have been deemed to be the most influential in their field. Our YouTube faves were, unsurprisingly, placed in the ‘Digital and Social Media’ category. We couldn’t be more proud of our faves for this achievement, hopefully the 2017 list will be nothing but YouTubers!
On the production side of things, SBTV founder Jamal Edwards was recognised. Dominic Smales, the head of internet management company Gleam (which manages Zalfie and other vloggers) also made it on to the list.
