Birth Place

Middleton was born on 8 November 1991 in Aldershot, England, as the elder of two siblings. His father was in the army and the family moved often. A traumatic incident in his childhood was his parents’ divorce. He attended Northampton University and started a YouTube channel dedicated to Pokémon while at university, in which he called himself "PokemanDanLv45". Middleton created the channel The Diamond Minecart in 2012. It is a more professional, children-focused gaming channel. The name of the YouTube channel was eventually changed to TheDiamondMinecart / DanTDM. Thus, from being a mere child born in a middle class family in a British military town, Dan has now become the owner of one of the most popular YouTube Channels. Talking about gaming, Dan's original passion, he won the Guinness World Record for "Most goals scored in a game of Rocket League for a team of 2" and "Most goals scored in a game of Rocket League (team of three)." He is famous for the ‘Let’s Play’ series and has uploaded over 2000 videos till date.

The Meteoric Rise to Stardom

According to Daniel, he likes to keep his daily schedule pretty simple. He gets up around 9am and starts working on the video an hour later. He checks for Minecraft updates, edits the videos in the afternoon, and uploads the finished product at 8:30pm, after which, he checks for comments. In spite of this simplicity, Dan Middleton has more YouTube followers than the BBC! This transformation from an ordinary graduate to one of the most famous names in the YouTube world with more than 12 million subscribers in just a few years makes Daniel Middleton quite a personality to look out for in the future!
