Sean previously opened up to Metro.co.uk about his charity live streams, explaining that he’s eager to help others after growing up without having much money.

‘There’s such a huge audience there, and it was such a potential to do so many great things –  I felt like I wasn’t really tapping into that…I felt like there was so much further that we could push it,’ he said.

The YouTube star continued: ‘Growing up, I always had nothing or at least I wasn’t very wealthy in terms of materials or anything like that.’

However, with the voice that he’s gained from his YouTube audience, he pointed out: ‘I need to give back in some sort of fashion to people who aren’t as lucky as I am.’

More than a million people have been diagnosed with coronavirus since the pandemic began in December.

The USA has become the new epicentre of the pandemic, accounting for more than a quarter of the world’s cases, according to researchers from Johns Hopkins University. The global death toll has passed 50,000 with Italy and Spain suffering the most.
