    Fans Of YouTube Star Zoella Are Getting Seriously Emotional At Her Book Signings

    People are shaking, crying, and breaking their phones after meeting her.

    In case you hadn't heard, British YouTube sensation Zoe Sugg has a new book out.

    Girl Online is already a huge success and is pretty much guaranteed to be the Christmas bestseller.

    So obviously the 24-year-old from Brighton is conducting a series of book signings around the UK to meet her loyal fans.

    Bluewater

    Sugg, who has around 9 million subscribers across her two Zoella YouTube channels, held events in Glasgow and Kent this week and will finish her tour in Manchester today.

    The exact locations of the signings have been kept secret, with only those who acquired tickets online allowed to attend.

    This is the sort of thing the lucky few who got tickets are seeing:

    Some people had absolutely no idea what was going on at the Bluewater shopping centre on Wednesday night.

    I don't know what Zoella is but he/she/it has attracted every 13yr old girl in Kent to bluewater tonight.

    Some of Sugg's fans made pictures for her.

    Or created personalised notebooks.

    Some even gave her Pop-Tarts.

    @ZozeeBo did you like your pop tarts Zoe? x

    Basically, she got given a lot of stuff.

    Sugg and her close-knit group of YouTube friends have become internet superstars over the last couple of years and are now some of the most influential presenters in the country.
