Who is Emily Canham dating?

She has been linked to fellow YouTube star, Jake Boys (@jakeboys) and they were supposedly together for around three or four years. However, Jake is now dating another influencer named Leah Louvaine and the pair have their own YouTube channel together.

Meanwhile Emily is now dating James Bourne (@jamesfutureboybourne) of the iconic band, Busted. Having been a huge fan of the band since the beginning of her YouTube career, Emily is truly living the fanfic life.

They've been an item since 2018 but after not being seen together on socials for a while, it led to lots of split rumours.

However it appears they've put the speculation to bed because while James has been promoting his new tour on Twitter, according to Emily's little sister Sophie the pair spent time together in Canada over Christmas.

Charlie was the lead vocalist of Busted, and definitely the heartthrob of the band. The iconic straight, highlighted hair and the blazer worn with every outfit. The ultimate crush.

Busted joined McFly to create supergroup, McBusted, but Charlie didn't take part which left a lot of people unsure if Busted would ever get back together. Since then, Busted have reunited but as of right now they're all doing their own thing. Charlie has recently released his own label with a single called 'I See You' – a very different vibe to the Busted songs.

James was a co-vocalist, guitarist and keyboardist for the band. Also he was the one behind the Busted songs – most of the popular songs were written by him – so we have him to thank for knowing what it will be like in the Year 3000.

James has always stayed in the music industry and following his time in Busted he launched a solo career - including writing musical theatre, writing songs for other artists and his own solo project. James tweeted, "After twenty amazing years making music, I am stepping into 2020 on a brand new solo adventure. Busted will always be my band. But, I've dreamed for years about releasing my own album so here we go." Taking us to his new album release 'Safe Journey Home'.

Matt Willis then

Matt was known for being the bassist and co-vocalist for the band. The rebellious member of Busted, always changing the style and colour of his hair; from the fringe across his face, to the classic schoolboy spiked hair, and all the way to the shaved hair.
