HE’S MIXED with celebrities, has thousands of adoring fans and broadcasts on the internet to provide young teenagers with a person to interact with – now one of Solihull’s hidden gems is rapidly becoming one of the UK’s most popular vloggers.
15 year old Jack Sims has used his profile to gain almost 25,000 followers across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
The adored teenager is currently taking his GCSE’s and uses his witty, honest and amusing personality to help fans overcome illnesses including depression and anxiety.
Having met the likes of Dappy, Rudimental and television personality Joey Essex, Jack insists that his main aim is to spread positivity and make people smile.
Speaking to Observer Reporter Shaun Reynolds, Jack’s unique personality shone through as he spoke of how he appreciates his fans and loves the interaction.
Jack said: “At the moment I’m just helping people out with their problems at home and entertaining people but hopefully we get into bigger things in the future.
“We do meet ups on a regular basis so I can meet my fans – it’s surreal sometimes as I’ll be doing some shopping in Solihull town centre and people will come up to me and ask for photos.
“I’m trying to spread positivity, trying to make people happy and help them get through problems such as parents splitting up – which is what happened to me.”
Jack receives support from his personal manager, Paul Holton.
Paul, having previously worked with bands and singers, spotted Jack on YouNow.
The star now has 35,000 followers on the broadcasting app and Paul oversees all of Jack’s commitments.
Paul added: “We’ve done three Soccer Six events which is one of the largest celebrity football tournaments, we also had the opportunity for three days at the Fusion Music Festival.
“Unfortunately we had to cut the festival short as Jack didn’t want to cancel his fans meet up in Manchester the following day – that’s the type of guy Jack is, he loves meeting his fans.
“He helps take his followers out of their own personal problems and there’s been examples where he’s helped girls who have suffered from depression and anxiety.”
