Tickets for the signing of his new book Generation Next: The Takeover sold out last week, with six hundred people reserving a slot for the event.

Dozens of youngsters gathered outside the book store to meet the 22-year-old celebrity, with some waiting in line for over an hour.

11-year-old Max Nichols from Old Buckenham joined the queue with his mum and brother at 11.30am and was still waiting patiently at 12.40pm.

The long wait did little to dampen his eagerness, he said: 'I'm really excited that Oli is in Norwich, he's really funny and makes good content.'
