"I was like, who the hell is Zoella?"

Alfie Deyes has opened up about the early days of his relationship wit Zoe Sugg. In a new video, Alfie and Zoe are watching back some of his old videos and it gets them reminiscing about the good old days. Bu one video in particular that catches their attention:

"This is the video", Alfie says, "'Ideas I Try To Live By', this is one that Zoe liked and that's how we started speaking."

Yep, Zoe liked that video and that was the spark that started Zalfie. Here's the video in case you're wondering:

Zoe then quips "I'm going to dislike it now."

Alfie says that when Zoe liked his video, "loads of people commented on it saying 'Zoella liked this!" But he says his reaction was, "who the hell is Zoella?" So then he looked her up and followed her on Twitter. She already followed him, so the chance to do some DM slindin' presented itself.

Zoe then jumps in saying, "pleeease tell them what you said."

"I'm not flirty at all, I've literally only had one girlfriend before Zoe." A bashful Alfie says. "I DM'd Zoe straight away saying 'here's my Skype, add me'. Then we were on Skype for five hours that night, on video."

The rest is history.
