Early life and family
Dylan Adam McEvoy was born on March 14, 2003 in Crawley, England, so his zodiac sign is Pisces and he is a British national. As of 2020, Dylan lives with his parents and younger brother in Manchester, England. Almost nothing is known about his family or childhood except that he was drawn to YouTube and video editing from his young age, and used this passion to pursue his online career.
Dylan is still studying at his local secondary school in Manchester, due to take his entrance exam in 2021. He has not shared any future plans for his further education.
Launch of the YouTube channel
He launched his channel in July 2016 and introduced himself as ItzDurv in a video called “Shoutout Sunday #01 – Grow Your Channel! Get Active Subscribers!”
In early 2017, his channel reached the milestone of 50 million views of his videos with the titles now commonly referred to as “clickbait.” He posted videos with shocking titles, such as “My school is deleting my channel” or “My teacher has a crush on me”, telling stories that were hard to believe but claimed to be true.
He claimed that his school authorities saw his channel and found reasons to threaten him and force him to shut it down. He also told the story of his teacher who had feelings for him when he was in sixth grade, and some of his subscribers believed his stories, but soon understood that he was just lying to get more viewers.
Among the videos Dylan posted were “I’m dropping out of school at age 13”, “YOUTUBE sent me the wrong play button”, and the video that became his calling card – “Wanna join my free gift card giveaway?”. In his “giveaway videos” he asked his followers to like and comment on his videos to get a new iPhone or other gadgets.
He also allegedly gave away several Xbox Live gift cards but in fact he never gave any away as he just didn’t have them at all but it was just a ploy to get more subscribers, likes and comments. On May 31, 2017, Dylan’s YouTube channel “Durv” was officially terminated, as it was reported many times as violating the platform’s Community Guidelines.
Return to YouTube and get banned again
In less than a year, on April 12, 2018, the channel was reinstated to give Dylan a second chance, but he only used it to repeat his stories. He came back with his “Dear YouTube, I’m back…” video, claiming he wouldn’t be posting giveaways.
However, he still used the clickbait tags so that his videos attracted more views and were reported many times by viewers as a result. In September 2017, Dylan uploaded the video titled “Commentaires End”, in which he rapped about popular YouTubers like ImAllexx, Memeulous, LeafyIsHere and many others, who he believed were responsible for getting his videos removed from the platform. Some of his followers later uploaded again the video so that people can still find and watch it.
He was also very active on Twitter, posting links to his clickbait videos on YouTube, so his Twitter account was soon suspended.
As of 2020, he has an alternative Twitter account – “DurvTM” – but he does not have a YouTube channel, as the platform does not give him another chance to repost his fishing videos.
Life after fame
Dylan still occasionally posts his photos to Instagram, and some of his tweets get likes from his former YouTube subscribers. On July 23, 2019, he tweeted: ‘Haven’t uploaded on Durv in 3 months, yikes’, then added on July 26, ‘Hey @TeamYouTube can you please watch my video, it’s been under review for a while :/’. In fact, he wasn’t uploading anything since he doesn’t have a YouTube channel, but he still tried to get some attention from the YouTube authorities, hoping to get his channel back, but to no avail.
A popular YouTuber – Memeulous, who has over 3.37 million subscribers as of February 2020 – shared his thoughts on the video Durv launched when he tried to get back on YouTube in January 2018, making many jokes about Durv and his shameless attempts to increase comments and views, saying he was ruining the reputation of other YouTubers. He also mentioned him in his video “THE WORST YOUTUBERS OF THE DECADE”.
Many former viewers of Durv keep asking many questions about YouTube’s policy on clickbait tags on videos, which are still used by many other YouTubers, such as LispyJimmy (who has 6.17 million subscribers on his channel) and Sernando (who has 5.4 million subscribers).

Only a few of them get notifications from the system about violations and sometimes their videos are removed, but none of them are permanently suspended.
Hobbies, favorite things and interesting facts
Finished with his YouTube channel, Dylan now enjoys his spare time playing video games; among his favorites is Fortnite, GTA 5. He loves boxing and sometimes attends boxing matches with his friends. He likes to travel the world and enjoyed visiting New York in 2018. He has a cat.
Appearance, clothing style
Dylan has short, naturally black hair that he once dyed gray blonde and later a golden blonde shade, eventually reverting to its natural color. He has light brown eyes. His height, weight and vital statistics are not available. Regarding his clothing style, he often mentioned his passion for Gucci clothing in his videos, bragging about his chance to buy expensive hoodies and T-shirts with Gucci prints. However, it became another calling card of bad taste as many of his viewers just laughed at his boast.
Wealth and salary
Only from 2020 $90,000 remains of the net worth Dylan managed to build during the successful period of his YouTube career.
