Don't Rock The Boat: Who Is Joe Weller?

Learn more about Don't Rock The Boat contestant Joe Weller.

ITV's new reality series Don't Rock The Boat - airing every night at 9pm next week - promises to be a test of endurance like no other as 12 celebrities are challenged to row the length of the British Isles.

The famous faces will be split into two teams of six before going head-to-head in a race from St Ives in Cornwall to Lochinver in Northern Scotland.

Many of the celebs - including Jodie Kidd, Craig Charles and Denise Lewis - are already familiar faces to the British public, here we profile one of the less-recognisable celebs on the boat, Joe Weller.

Joe Weller first gained fame as a popular YouTuber in 2012, with his mix of comedy sketches and football-related content helping him to amass over 5 million subscribers on the platform.

The 24-year-old has also released multiple original songs, including 'Ronaldo Chop', 'Like Beckham' and 'Mesut Ozil Arsenal Song'.

Weller appears to have gained most of his clicks from potentially-controversial content, including one video which sees him and a friend approach different women in Leicester Square in an attempt to secure a threesome.

Other videos on his channel have titles such as 'Pulling Birds In Public...', 'FINDING LETHAL SPECIMENS ON OMEGLE' and 'ULTIMATE PUBLIC TROLLING'.

In February 2018 Weller took part in a boxing fight with fellow YouTuber KSI at the Copperbox Arena but lost the bout on a technical knockout.

During his time on Don't Rock The Boat, which was filmed earlier this summer, Weller is said to have got close to fellow contestant Lucy Fallon, better known as Coronation Street's Bethany Platt.

Don't Rock The Boat airs every night from Monday, November 2 to Friday, November 6 at 9pm on ITV.
