YouTube UK Re:View – Hey, Sam Smith. Welcome Back

Sam Smith hits the top spot this week – discover more of the top trending videos here.

Here’s what the UK’s loving on YouTube this week.


1. After a year off, Sam Smith returns with another ridiculously good heart-wrencher – his new single ‘Too Good at Goodbyes’ pulled in over 31 million views in its debut week. Welcome back, Sam.

2. Did you know that the first Tomb Raider film came out 16 years ago? (Bet that made you blink twice). People are going nuts for the Lara Croft reboot. See the trailer here.

3. While Lara swings in the tombs, let's talk about Uber. The UK heads to social to air their views on the latest news. Disclaimer: Some may make you chuckle.

4. After Saturday night’s X Factor, viewers immediately flocked to the show’s YouTube channel to relive Alisah Bonaobra’s heartfelt rendition of Beyonce's ‘Listen’. Goosebumps and totes emosh.

5. Over on Strictly, the show pays a special tribute to Sir Bruce Forsyth. Nice to see you, to see you nice – we promise to keep dancing and hold a special place for you in our hearts. RIP, Brucey.
