Charlie McDonnell has become a cyberspace sensation with his catchy songs and off-the-wall films.

He opened the channel charlieissocoollike four years ago, during a break in GCSE revision, using a £50 webcam and laptop. He now earns royalties from big-name advertisers including L'Oreal — and has even been flown out to California by Toy Story movie studio Pixar, to make videos about its latest releases.
He has also made three albums which all went into the iTunes download chart. Explaining his YouTube popularity, he said: "I try to make my videos more personal, like I'm speaking to one person rather than a big audience. Charlie, of Bath, Somerset, has now put on hold plans to go to university to focus on his media career.
Mum Lindsay Atkin said: "When I've been to events with him he is mobbed. He's making a good living at it."
Charlie performed a Biz Session with his band Sons Of Admirals last year."
