Well-known faces in Youtube world
Twins Jordan and Loanne Collyer are well-known faces in the vlogging and YouTube world.
Days away from fronting brand new online channel – RawCrimeChannel – on YouTube, the ambitious 24-year-olds from Bromley have some interesting achievements to their name.
Jordan has interviewed the likes of Paloma Faith, Rizzle Kicks and Wretch 32, while Loanne boasts a bachelor’s degree in European Studies and Portuguese.
The Collyer Twins grew up in the spotlight. They danced, acted and sang at different stage schools as children, including the famous Sylvia Young Theatre School in London. From Christmas pantomimes to school plays and recitals, you could guarantee the girls’ involvement if they could let out their creative side.
After spending four years together at an international school in Portugal from the age of 14, university choices saw them both take up academic courses but on opposite sides of the UK.
Jordan went to Bournemouth to study multimedia journalism, while Loanne moved north to Manchester.
Now back in Bromley, they have big ambitions of becoming presenters. They got a taste of interviewing music artists in 2013 after working as the face of social media company Starcount.
Still playing to their strengths in social media, the girls are now the faces of RawCrimeChannel, the brainchild of London TV production company Raw Cut – known for popular police dramas like Road Wars, Police Interceptors and Neighbourhood Blues.
Boasting one of the world’s biggest ‘real crime’ archives, the Raw Cut team brought The Collyer Twins on board for a new project – to take those clips and turn them into themed shows on YouTube.
Set to launch on October 10 and with a pilot episode already under their belt, Jordan and Loanne are just days away from getting one step closer to achieving their dreams of presenting.
