Zoe Sugg, aka Zoella, has announced that she is taking a few days away from the internet following confirmation that her bestselling novel was ghostwritten.
On Monday afternoon, Sugg announced to her followers on Twitter that she was taking a break from the internet.
Her boyfriend, fellow YouTube star Alfie Deyes, announced that he wouldn't be vlogging for a while either.
On Sunday, the 24-year-old uploaded this message to Twitter as a response to reports of her use of a ghostwriter.
Author Siobhan Curham is believed to be one of those who helped Sugg write the bestselling novel after being named in the acknowledgements. On Sunday she was thanking people on Twitter who were offering their support.
Penguin announced last week that Girl Online had recorded the largest ever first-week sales for a debut book in the UK.
Sugg returned to Twitter on Monday evening to criticise coverage of her announcement about spending a few days offline.
Deyes also hit out at those suggesting he had quit YouTube.
