On her primary YouTube channel, she has 880,000 subscribers, while her vlogging channel has over 500,000.

She is also quite popular on other social media platforms, with 640K Instagram followers, 266K Twitter followers, 35K Facebook likes, and 27.9K YouNow admirers. Barker was a member of the all-female ensemble ‘Born2Blush’ as a singer. In March 2015, their first original composition, “24seven,” was uploaded to YouTube. In December 2016, she was one of 25 YouTubers who recorded the charity Christmas single ‘Christmas Without You’, which benefited the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The Grammy-winning songwriters ‘Jackie Boys’ wrote the tune. Currently, she hosts a six-episode TalkTalk TV original series titled ‘In My Day’ in which she and other members of her family discuss various topics from the perspective of different generations.

The Star’s Meteoric Rise to Fame

Since she was three years old, Saffron Barker has known fellow ‘Born2Blush’ members Libby Whitehouse, Jazmine Tiley, and Georgia McNamara. Early in the 2010s, they began singing together. They have participated in a number of national vocal competitions in England. In May 2014, the band launched a YouTube channel where they uploaded their rendition of “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars. Sometime in 2015, the band disbanded. Barker established her primary channel in July of that same year.

After a few months, she launched her vlogging channel. In her first video, which was published in August of 2015, she documented her trip to Florida. Since then, she has amassed a total of 134 million views, with her most popular video, ‘Types of Boyfriend,’ featuring her ex-boyfriend Jake Mitchell receiving 4 million views. Other popular videos of hers include “Her Room Tour,” “The Chapstick Kissing Challenge,” and “Boyfriend Does My Makeup.” In only a few years, she has risen from obscurity to international renown!

Disputes and Scandals

As Barker’s maternal grandfather, Peter Hewlett stated in the very first episode of ‘In My Day,’ the price of fame is privacy, and Barker appears to be paying this price. She began courting Jake Mitchell at the beginning of 2015. He is a well-known YouTuber with over one million subscribers to his primary channel. Late in 2016, Mitchell posted a Snapchat photo of himself asleep in someone else’s bed.

The Internet has erupted with rumors. Their fans soon determined that neither he nor Barker slept there. Later, it was discovered that he had deceived Barker with Claudia Naya, a student at their secondary school. Mitchell denied it vehemently, and his sister Eloise defended him. When their father, Rob, was accused of harassing Barker through a fake Twitter account, the situation deteriorated. Soon after, she and Mitchell broke up.
