Russell Brand, Zoe Ball and Chris Moyles aren’t necessarily names that you would place side-by-side, but for the purposes of this post, that’s exactly what is going to happen. The reason for this being that all three of them have launched their own YouTube channels, variously documenting their lives, transforming take away-style cuisine or calling for a no-holds-barred revolution in political engagement across the UK and beyond…
While famous folk taking to YouTube is nothing new — Tulisa responding directly to the release of a sex tape, Bill Bailey blogging from his bunker or model Ruth Crilly recommending beauty products and sharing her life — it’s great to see people with established careers in TV, radio or film using YouTube to deliver personal projects, connect more directly with their audiences or simply try something new.
However, if revolution, transforming take aways or exploring life post-breakfast show fame don’t appeal, the YouTube UK spotlight channel hosts a selection of viral videos and more, and youtube.com/music seeks to meet your musical needs.
