Phil Lester currently resides in London with Daniel Howell. Now you know why Dan frequently appears in Phil’s videos – they live together! The online chemistry and real life friendship between the two have created a sensation on the internet, even fueling romance rumors. Phil may be single in reality, but he’s Dan’s boyfriend for all the devoted fans in the “Phandom.”

Is Phil Lester Gay?

“Is Phil Lester Gay?” has been one of the frequently asked questions among Phil’s fans, the answer to which is still not clear. The question is also common among Dan’s fans.

Phil and Dan met each other through a mutual friend in Manchester. They began collaborating in 2011 and moved in together in a London home in July 2012. This triggered the rumor for the first time that the two are more than just fellow YouTubers.

The closeness they displayed in their videos made almost everyone sure that they were in love, but these speculations came to an end when Dan announced in one of his videos that he is not GAY; he frequently does. Although Phil is yet to make any such comments, one thing is clear that the two aren’t dating each other.

The duo went as far as filming a video of them sharing rings which made many of their viewers believe that the two got married, but it’s clear that it was just a prank vlog.
