According to Connor Darlington, video creation is in his blood and he created “silly videos” to show to his parents even when he was a child. However, during his teenage years, it took a backseat as he had to work in retail to fund his musical aspirations. He created his eponymous YouTube channel in January 2014 and began uploading cover versions of popular songs by prominent artists. He also often posted pranks on his channel, and one video of him pranking his ex-girlfriend following a YouTube trend was his first viral video. After someone invited him to join the Musical.ly app, he started to re-upload music covers from his YouTube channel to the platform. However, neither his YouTube channel nor his Musical.ly profile gained much traction until the latter platform was acquired by TikTok’s parent company Bytedance in August 2018. This time around, he began making original comedy videos for a change and those were quite popular. As he realized the power of the platform, he became addicted to it and continued to churn out new content based on the suggestions of his steadily growing audience. One such video was “Connor, Connor”, his take on the popular YouTube trend of “Telling lies?” meme, which became widely popular and remains his “most infamous video to date”. In fact, it became so popular that TikTok turned it into an advertising campaign to encourage more people to join the platform. Shortly after that, people began to recognize him in the streets and often yelled “Connor, Connor” to draw his attention. Connor, who often dresses up as various characters in his videos, has already amassed over 5 million fans on TikTok.
TikTok not only helped Connor Darlington gain fame, but also introduced him to his future partner, Liana Jade Brooker, who is another popular TikToker with 6.5 million fans on the platform. While both of them were successful when they first met back in 2018, they soon realized the potential they had if they joined forces. They gradually began to appear in each other’s videos on TikTok, but it was not easy initially as both of them had fulltime jobs in retail and lived four hours apart, which allowed them little time to make videos together. Eventually, they decided that there was no other option than jumping in the deep end and moving in together. For the next three months, they lived in his parents’ back-garden shed and slept on an airbed. Soon, they left their retail jobs to focus fulltime on social media, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
Their popularity grew massively and they were recognized as “TikTok’s POWER COUPLE” by TikTok UK. In June 2019, they returned to YouTube to create a joint channel, Connor And Liana, which became the second fastest-growing YouTube channel in UK that year. The channel, which contains mostly vlogs and shorts videos, apart from occasional challenges, pranks, reviews, travel videos and more, has now crossed one million subscribers. Connor Darlington has also launched a new personal channel in September 2020 and primarily uploads YouTube shorts on the channel.
