Get out me car! Tish makes new video to mark anniversary of broom broom viral Vine

It's been a life changing year for Tish, who now does public appearances all over the country

It’s a year today since Tish Simmonds found global internet fame with her video in her mum’s car – and she’s made a new video to celebrate!

This time last year Tish, 19, was a normal college student from Skelmanthorpe enjoying her summer break when she decided to try out a new mobile phone video app called Vine – and the six-second video she made with her Broom Broom catchphrase changed her life.

Her videos have been seen millions of times around the world, and she’s starred in adverts, been in magazines, been on BBC Radio 1’s breakfast show and been stopped in the street thousands of times for pictures – and best of all, made dozens of new friends.

Take a look at Tish's day with Grimmy!

Tish said: “If I hadn’t done the video my life would probably be boring. Now I’ve got loads of new friends – some really close ones too.

“I’ve met loads of people – I went to Dapper Laughs’ stand up show and I met him at the after party. It was awesome – he’s hyper, like me!

“People are still stopping me in the street for pictures. I never say no to a selfie!”

The animal care student has passed her first year at Kirklees College and is spending the summer doing public appearances.

She said: “I’m going to Scotland next month to do a club appearance. I just turn up and have pictures and put music on. My mum comes along too – she’s part of it!”

And Tish and her mum Dawn are to appear in Wideboys the Movie, being filmed later this year.

Tish said: “I’m not allowed to say anything about it just yet but we will be filming in Brighton or London and I think there will be lots of stars in it who people will recognise. I’m really excited about it!"
