Vlogstars 2017 competition

We asked over 500 schools across the North West to take part in our competition to find the next YouTube Vlogging sensation.

Teenagers aged between 13 and 17 have sent us their brilliant videos to help spread the word that wipes are bad news for loos and help reduce blockages and sewer flooding to homes, gardens, rivers and beaches.

We’ve been overwhelmed with the response and fans of our Vlogstar finalists have been voting in their thousands.

We're pleased to announce our winner is Jacob, All Hallows Catholic High School
