British youtuber Zoella on the cover of Cosmopolitan UK

The November cover star talks about her struggles with anxiety, the story behind the ghostwriter saga, money and her boyfriend.



On her anxiety: "I have had anxiety since before I started doing this," she explains. "I think it changes and adapts with your life. I have a therapist who I speak to every week without fail and that's been the biggest help because I'm now doing things that I never thought I'd be able to do." "I'm one of those people who thinks everyone should have a therapist. People go to the gym, they eat healthily and visit the hairdressers but no one really looks after their mind."

On money: Zoella, whose net worth is reported to be around £3 million, also reveals in the November issue that she is strict about who she collaborates with. "There's not really any amount you can put on something, because if I didn't agree with it, I just wouldn't do it. 95% of stuff is turned down." Are we talking six-figure sums? "Some figures!" Ok, but is she rich? "Erm, in happiness!" she says. We'll take that as a yes...

On her boyfriend, youtuber Alfie Deyes: “He’s the first person to say, ‘I’m so proud of you’. If I’m ever like, ‘I can’t do this’, he’s like, ‘I can help you.’”

On the ghostwriting issue: "It was horrible. I worked really hard on the book and it was all me – the characters, the story. I felt like I was being attacked and I was like, 'I'm going to shut my laptop, and I can't be bothered with this.' It knocked my confidence massively. When it came round to the second book, I felt I couldn't and that it had all been ruined. It took a lot for me to put that behind me and move forward."
