Colin Furze’s YouTube channel has over 13 million subscribers and more than 1.7 billion views. Colin has a loyal following over 855k on Instagram and 2 million on TikTok, and placed #10 in The Sunday Times Influencer List 2019.

After leaving school at 16 to pursue a plumbing apprenticeship, Colin now creates amazing inventions and world record beating vehicles from the comfort of his garden shed. He began his film making career as a teen, recording short videos of rides and stunts on his BMX bike, which rapidly progressed to filming fires and explosions. YouTube gave Colin a platform to showcase these films as well as an audience for his wild projects and crazy stunts.

In 2023 Colin launched a second YouTube channel, 2MuchColinFurze. This gives viewers access to unseen tunnel content, behind the scenes footage and Q&As. In just four months, the channel reached one million subscribers and over 20 million views. All the videos released on 2MuchColinFurze have featured in trending.

Colin has held the world record for the world’s biggest bonfire [1406m3], longest motorcycle [72ft], fastest mobility scooter [71.59 mph], pram [53.46 mph], toilet [53.25 mph] and bumper car [100.336 mph]. In addition, Colin also holds a Webby Award for his homemade hover-bike video.

On YouTube, Colin is known for his underground bunker, Wolverine Claws, his jet bicycle, homemade hoverbike and his ‘safety shirt and tie’ (now looking a little worse for wear!). Since 2020, Colin has been digging a secret steel-walled underground tunnel in his back garden, connecting the bunker to his workshop – documented over the course of an epic 10 YouTube videos.

He has taken part in online campaigns for a number of major brands, making videos for, among others, Ford, eBay, Google, Activision, Sky, Disney, Walkers and Top Gear.

Colin has appeared on television as part of the build team of Sky 1’s Gadget Geeks, as well as featuring on a number of programmes internationally with his videos and his inventions. He also appeared on an episode of Celebrity Supply Teacher in 2020.

Colin lives in Stamford with his partner, son and daughter, and unsurprisingly is a big fan of Formula One, Moto Grand Prix and BMX.
