The collab channel between Jake Boys, Jack Dean, Sam King, Adam Waithe, Jamie Cottrell and Nick Crompton will no longer be uploading videos. TenEighty caught up with Jamie, Jake and Sam about the split.
“I’m actually pretty gutted,” said Jamie, on how he felt about the break-up. “I think myself and the boys had a lot more to give as a group. I never really felt like we got started!”
“It’s a huge shame,” said Sam. “It’s going to be sad to not see a new video on the channel everyday.”
The members of the Project Six channel, which featured uploads every Monday to Saturday and amassed over 33,000 subscribers and near 600,000 views, took to Twitter to break the news to fans on Tuesday.
ANNOUNCEMENT: regrettably, we will no longer be uploading videos to our channel. there will be more to come soon. we love you ❤️

Regarding the move, Jake said: “I feel like it’s a positive decision but it’s a huge loss for us and lots of the viewers. Me and the boys live all over the UK so it’s hard to always meet up! Lots of the people in the group have new projects planned and are working hard on their personal channels and I just want them all to be happy and succeed.”
“I feel now that I have more time to myself I can get better videos out and work really, really hard,” he continued. “I want to produce better content and make people happy.”
Sam agreed the move will be positive for their individual channels. “Now Project Six is over we all have so much more time to focus on our own channels,” he said. “The quality of content is sure to improve!”
We also asked them what their fondest memory of being part of Project Six was.
“My fondest memory is the first time we met as a group,” said Jamie. “We’d all been talking for around a month about starting up and when we met, you’d never know that we were practically a group of strangers.”
For Jake, it was Summer In The City 2014. “It was amazing spending so much time with the boys and meeting so many amazing people,” he said. “I am definitely gonna miss us all being together. It’s just always been hard all meeting. Even at SITC we couldn’t all make it.”
Sam answered: “I think my most favourite memory is our re-launch video. It was such a funny video to film and it makes me laugh every time I watch it!”
We then moved on to what they’ll miss most about the channel.
“I think the thing I’ll miss the most is our group chat,” said Sam. “I’d always wake up to loads of stupid and funny messages, most of them being the person whose day it was to upload asking for the theme for the week.”
Jake agreed. “I will miss the group chat,” he said. “Nothing funnier than drunk Nick Crompton messages at 2am.”
Jamie offered a different perspective however. “I don’t really feel like there’s anything to miss,” he said. “We’re all still good friends and we’re all still hurling abusive nonsense at each other in the group chat, so it’s like nothing has changed!”
We finished by asking if there was anything they wanted to say, and all three had thanks to offer.
“I’d like to thank everyone who supported us as a group and as individuals,” said Jamie. “When we launched, the amount of people spreading the word and helping us out was mind blowing.”
“I’d like to say thanks to everyone who’s being so lovely about it on Twitter and stuff, and who are being understanding to us all,” added Sam. “Thank you.”
Finally, Jake said: “I want to thank everyone who supported Project Six! And here’s to an exciting future!”
