SCORES of youngster queued around the block to meet their hero.

YouTube star Alfie Deyes was at Churchill Square Shopping Centre in Brighton to sign copies of his new book The Pointless Book 3.

He chatted with fans, posed for photographs and even filmed for his popular video blog.

Mark Buchanan-Smith, Churchill Square centre director, said: “We’ve had a fantastic afternoon with Alfie signing copies of his latest title. He’s a hugely popular figure, as demonstrated by his millions of followers across social media, and the reaction to him being in the centre was fantastic.

“The team at WHSmith did a great job in organising the event. As a local lad, it’s great to see him doing so well.”

Alfie lives in Brighton with fellow YouTube star Zoe Sugg.
