THEY are fans of YouTube star Alfie Deyes and are queuing for a chance to meet him in Bournemouth town centre.

The internet sensation has over 5.5 million subscribers on his channel the ‘PointlessBlog’ and he has written a series of books.

A long queue of more than 200 people, mainly youngsters, was at 10am this morning snaking back from the doors of WH Smiths, around the corner into Richmond Hill and as far back as the Sacred Heart Church.

Buying a ticket to the event gets you a copy of his ‘Pointless Book 3’ and a place at the event itself.

The event was announced earlier this month but its location was kept secret.
