Saffron Barker Age: Strictly’s Youngest Star

Saffron Barker‘s age hasn’t even reached 20 yet (but she definitely looks like she has), and is also reported to have a net worth of over £1million.

The 19-year-old internet sensation launched her online career back in 2014, when she made videos alongside her girl group ‘Born2Blush’. Their debut saw a girly rendition of Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk, but the channel failed to gain much momentum.

What did take off, however, was Saffron’s personal Youtube channel, which she launched a couple of years later in 2016.

Content Queen

Her first video ‘Types Of Boyfriends’, featuring ex-boyfriend and fellow Youtuber Jake Mitchell, blew up almost overnight.

She fast became the most subscribed channel of her type on the platform. With everything from food challenge videos, pranks on her Mum- Wendy Barker- and 24hour challenges, to makeup hauls- she does it all.

It;s not uncommon for some of the biggest Youtube trends to have been started by Saffron, including her ‘only eating a certain colour food for 24hrs’ challenges.

The Brighton born social media star actually became the youngest contestant ever to take part in Strictly Come Dancing. Despite her age, Barker held her own in the competition and followed in the footsteps of Youtuber Joe Sugg, finishing a runner-up with partner AJ!

The dancing star revealed Strictly to be one of her biggest dreams before she was cast:

“This is such a dream for me, and I’m also very nervous, but I can’t wait for this to actually start. I’m most excited to find out my partner and get started.”

Having actually danced when she was a youngster, she was expected to be a success from the start:

“Everyone keeps thinking I’m going to be really good.If I go out with my friends all of them can really dance, I’m the worst one if we go to a club.”

What About Behind The Scenes?

We know she’s a success in all aspects of her career, but what about her personal life?

Saffron’s clearly a family girl, with her parents constantly featuring in her videos- having become quite the hit themselves. Her older brother, Casey, actually runs his own family vlog channel, featuring Saffron’s adorable nieces.

As for her love life, Barker has been linked to a number of her fellow influencers, including her dancing partner AJ Pritchard (despite him having a girlfriend), and 23-year-old vlogger, Joe Weller.

Saffron has squashed those rumours, admitting to being “very single”, thanks to being so career-driven:

“You know what, I haven’t even really thought about that. I think I’m just so focused. Obviously I want to meet my partner… but I’m just so focused on working hard and I haven’t even really thought about it.”
