How's it going guys, and welcome to...
— Harry's intro.

Harry Christopher George Lewis (born November 24, 1996 (1996-11-24) [age 24]), also known as wroetoshaw or W2S, is a YouTube personality and the youngest member of the Sidemen.

Background

Harry was born in Guernsey, but grew up in Alderney - one of the Channel Islands - until 2004 when his family moved back to Guernsey.[1] He has a younger brother, Josh, and a younger sister, Rosie. They all attended Guernsey Grammar School. The Sidemen often used the Guernsey stereotype as a joke against Harry, regularly referring to him as "inbred" and having an incestuous relationship with his family.

During his childhood, Harry played for a local football team called 'Rangers F.C.' and once lost a match 32–0. He first got into gaming when his parents bought him a Nintendo GameCube for £5 from a car boot sale. Harry was evidently an intelligent student growing up as he sat his GCSE maths exam a year early and still achieved a grade A*.[2]

Harry is one of three Sidemen members who never lived in the Sidemen House (or the former house). Until 2014, he lived at his family home in Guernsey. He then moved to London in September 2014 - at the age of 17 - to an apartment in the Stratford Halo tower which he shared with Callux and Calfreezy. The three of them moved out of the tower sometime in 2018 and into their own house overlooking the River Thames. In mid-2020, after Callux moved into a new house by himself, Harry and Calfreezy moved into a smaller, new apartment. In March 2015, Harry bought a flat in Guernsey in addition to his London accommodation, which he used to self-isolate in during the Covid-19 pandemic.[3]

In 2017, Harry bought a dog named Herb who originally lived with him, Calfreezy and Callux in their Stratford Halo Tower apartment, but now lives in Guernsey with Harry's parents.

He was in a long term relationship with Katie Leach between 2014 and 2020.[4] He visited the German Pascha (the largest brothel in the world) in 2015 and paid for multiple experiences.[5] He claims that this was before he was in a relationship.[6]

YouTube

Harry initially set up numerous YouTube channels on which he'd experiment with different ideas (i.e. he had separate channels for vlogging and playing instruments). When he was 13 or 14, he did a fake iPad giveaway to get subscribers, but later admitted the iPad was the property of his brothers.[7]

Eventually, he set up his main channel "wroetoshaw". He created this name from FIFA and it is a combination of the players Nicky Wroe and Tom Bradshaw. At the age of 17, he dropped out of school and decided to do YouTube as his full-time job. Harry was the last to join the Sidemen, becoming a member around the same time he dropped out of school in early-2014 (a few months after their formation).

An image of Harry's scrotum was leaked onto the internet (alongside the caption "IT'S BATHTIME BOYS!") during a Twitter hack in April 2015. He has since made a joke out of this and has titled one of his vlogs as such.

In August 2015, Harry personally sent £50 to all of his Twitter followers on GCSE results day who tweeted him proving that they gained straight A*-A's. There were at least 16 in total - meaning he sent a minimum of £800.[8]

Harry hit ten million subscribers on his main channel in April 2017 and received his "Diamond Play Button" from YouTube shortly afterwards.

Personality

Harry is known for being the most "fearless" and energetic Sideman by being loud and overjoyed in videos. When Harry uploaded FIFA videos, he was known for smashing his chair or controller against the wall or at anything around him when he raged or became excited. A notable time this happened was when he threw his chair behind him and it smashed his TV.[9]

Harry has been described by Ethan and Simon as very "kid-like" and having a "lack of care for the world". He also uses self-deprecating humour and has joked about having a "minor drug addiction". Harry is also considered the least consistent of the Sidemen by not uploading very frequently. This was often one of the jokes in Cards Against Humanity sessions.

Although Harry appears extremely outgoing and extroverted in the Sidemen videos, he has talked numerous times about his lack of social confidence. This is shown in many videos that are filmed publicly or in front of a larger audience. He also spoke about how he found it difficult to make conversation, especially with fans who met him in public, and prefers when people lead the conversation for him in the video.[10]

People have speculated about Harry's alleged drug use because of the diss track Little Boy (where KSI accused him of using crack, ketamine and MDMA) during the 2017 Sidemen War. Harry has since joked about using marijuana and having a drug addiction but it is unknown if it is actually true. In 2021, he said was "not currently on drugs".

Controversy

In August 2020, a few hashtags were trending on Twitter such as #wroetoracist and #wroetoshawisoverparty. People were looking at offensive jokes in a number of his tweets from around 2014.[11][12]

A somewhat small amount of users on Twitter were trying to "cancel" him. Harry didn't respond to the backlash, and the drama died down.

Cars

In 2014, aged 17, Harry bought a chrome-wrapped Range Rover Evoque. He later re-wrapped it with a gold-chrome finish, and then again to a black finish. After a year of owning the Evoque, he sold it to Calfreezy. Harry then bought a Lamborghini Gallardo 50th Anniversary Edition in 2015 which he sold a few years later. He also possessed a grey Audi A4, supposedly his casual car for when he goes back to Guernsey.

Harry was also registered on the Sidemen's group-owned Vauxhall Zafira for a few years in the mid-2010s.

Harry was the subject of controversy during November 2014. He made a video showing off his "new car" which was a Ferrari 458 (rose-gold). A few weeks later, he admitted he was joking and confirmed the car did not belong to him - instead it belonged to Yianni from Yiannimize.[13]

Trivia
