Millionaire YouTuber Alfie Deyes has apologised for his '£1 A Day' challenge video

The Youtube star was accused of “making poverty a game”.

YOUTUBE STAR ALFIE Deyes – better known by his channel name PointlessBlog – has apologised for a video in which he challenged himself to live on £1 for a day.

You’ll soon see. Collection 1 - coming early July x

A post shared by Alfie Deyes (@pointlessblog) on

The 24 year-old, who lives in a mansion in Brighton and drives a Range Rover (hmmm) decided to film his day in which he tried to get by on just £1 a day for his 4 million subscribers. Y’know, as if that isn’t a reality for people across the globe.

In the video, Deyes can be seen struggling with having to drink tap water and abstain from using his capsule coffee machine.




The popular YouTuber, who is reportedly worth over £2 million, initially changed the title of the video to ‘Spending £1 IN 24 HOURS!’. However, he has now removed the video entirely and apologised.

“I’m so sorry if this has upset you, that was never my intention,” he said on Twitter.

I’d seen many others do this video recently and wanted to try it myself. Some people have seen the video as me mocking others, which I for sure was not doing in the video.”

Deyes also confirmed he will be donating any money made off the video to charities in Brighton, and that he will not be earning revenue from the apology video. (He also denied being a Tory, FYI).
