JacksGap is a British YouTube channel run by twins Jackson Frayn "Jack" Harries and Finnegan Frayn "Finn" Harries. Together JacksGap has more than 3.7 million subscribers.


JacksGap was originally launched in July 2011 by Jack Harries during his gap year after he had left school.[1] The main purpose of the channel was to document Jack's gap year. By September 2012 the site had 190,000 subscribers and the pay-per-click advertising revenue was enough to entirely finance the Harries' travels in Thailand.[1] After Finn joined the channel, the views nearly doubled.

JackGap attracts teenage girls in particular, with 88% of subscribers in this demographic.[1]

In 2013 the twins began to create 15 minute long episodes about their travels in India, funding the venture with £20,000 from Skype, Sony and MyDestination.[2]

As of September 2014, JacksGap has had over 3.7 million subscribers.[2]

In May 2014, JacksGap won 2 Screenchart! Channel Awards including; Best Directing for the Channel and Best Mini-Series or Short Film for their "The Rickshaw Run" videos! [3]


The twins were born on May 13, 1993 in London, England to Andy Harries and Rebecca Frayn. Finn is older than Jack by 2 minutes. They now often base their YouTube channel and videos on the many charity events they do.
