Meet the 'Charlie Bit My Finger' brothers eight years on (and Charlie's still nibbling!)

Remember the cute brothers who starred in Charlie Bit My Finger – the most successful viral YouTube video of all time?

To refresh your memory, here's the original – and it's just as funny as ever. Story continues after video...

But they've gone up a tad now, and here they are eight years later – and the younger bruv is still biting Harry's digit!

The boys were visited by CBBC's Newsround to find out how they are since their dad turned them into internet sensations in the 55 second clip that has been viewed an astonishing 800 million times (and counting!)

Newsround visited the Davies-Carr boys – Harry, 11, and Charlie, nine – at their home which they now share with two younger brothers.

Asked how they felt about the ginormous popularity of the video, Charlie said: "I think it's a bit odd that loads of people have watched it."

And dad Howard revealed how the film might never have come to public attention at all.

He explained that after filming his sons, he wanted to share the footage with the children's godfather in America.

However, the file size was too big to send on email, so he uploaded it to YouTube instead where it was shared all over the world.

And such is the success of the video – which is more popular than anything Taylor Swift, One Direction or Adele have ever put out – that the family have received thousands of pounds from advertising and sponsorship deals.
