During his secondary school years he got 12A* in his GCSE's and as a result was offered a place at University College London to study Natural Sciences. However, Vikkstar decided to pursue a career in YouTube instead and declined the offer, instead taking a gap year.
Vikkstar was first a Call of Duty content creator, primarily uploading videos of matches with his friends and montages. Eventually he started playing Grand Theft Auto V with a group of friends which eventually became the Sidemen in late 2013.
Two years after he created his main channel, Vikkstar gained an interest in Minecraft and decided to create a second channel dedicated to it. Through this channel he became very good friends with other Minecraft YouTubers, eventually forming The Pack.
Vikk is also known for his raw chicken fights where in his Minecraft Hunger Games, during a deathmatch, he would punch his enemies to death with Marina Joyce, mostly with setting them on fire and saying, "I need to cook my chicken". Not anymore because he only does How To Minecraft.
His most popular series across all three channels is his GTA 5 Funny Moments series, with over 700 videos starting in 2013 to present day. However, the series uploads have decayed from frequent short uploads in the beginning to longer videos with weekly uploads. Recurring YouTubers are Miniminter, Behzinga and Zerkaa, although Wizzite has increasingly featured in more videos.
Vikkstar is a large fan of Player Unknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite, sometimes uploading four to six hour long streams. Due to his promotion of PUBG, Vikkstar was invited to play at the 2017 Gamescom Invitational for PUBG and at the Twitchcon H1Z1 Invitational 2017.

He is part of 2 groups. The Pack (a Minecraft group) consisting of Lachlan, MrWoofless, PrestonPlayz, BajanCanadian, and JeromeASF & The Sidemen (a British Gaming group) consisting of KSI, Wroetoshaw, Miniminter, Zerkaa, TBJZL, and Behzinga.
He lives in the Sidemen House along with Zerkaa, KSI, and Miniminter. He has participated in two charity football matches which saw two teams, Sidemen FC against the YouTube All Stars. Vikkstar owns a Tesla P90D, which he bought in 2017. After being asked what happened to the Aston Martin he used to drive on a H5M stream, he commented that he gave it to his father.
Contrary to popular belief, Lewis is not the brother of Vikkstar as this was a joke which has largely inflated. When asked this on twitter, Vikkstar confirmed that Lewis was indeed not his brother and just another joke the Sidemen circulated.
