Ben Phillips started making videos on his iPhone at the age of 19 while working in his mum's shoe shop in Bridgend, Wales. What started as some personal fun quickly became a bigger responsibility as Ben hit one million followers on Vine over the course of a few months. Scouted by Jerome Jarre at just 200,000 followers, Ben looks to him as a mentor on social media. Ben’s Facebook page is now the fastest growing page in the UK and the world.

After travelling the world making content with other Viner’s in late 2014, Ben decided to migrate from Vine to Facebook and brought Elliot on board as his partner in production and prank subject. Ben's videos prank the residents of Cardiff City and Elliot while entertaining fans worldwide.

Ben debuted his live cinematic experience, selling out all 4 UK dates this year and the tour rolled through to Europe, US, Australia and Asia. His book Sorry Bro was published November 2016 with all 5,000 signed pre-orders sold out in 48 hours, catapulting it in to the top three best sellers list on Amazon.

Ben has 2.8 million YouTube subscribers, 8.7 million Facebook followers, 1.6 million Instagram followers and 450k Twitter followers.
