Zoella Apologises For Advent Calendar Blunder As Price Gets Halved

Poundland posted the tongue-in-cheek tweet on Wednesday

Zoella has responded to criticisms over her £50 Advent calendar, following several days of backlash online.

The Lifestyle Advent Calendar listening states that it contains bauble, confetti, purse, candle 130g, cookie cutter x 2, jotter pad, key ring, pen, room spray 30ml, stickers and votive.

Zoella explained that she felt "just as let down" as her fans, before reasserting that the price is set by the retailer, not her.

After an announcement for the calendar was released, many fans were quick to point out that the items in the calendar did not seem to represent the high price that is being charged.

Yep, there's only twelve days in this advent calendar, not even 25.

The calendar is being sold at Boots and has so far received an overall rating of one and a half stars.

Zoella - who is dating co-blogger Alfie Deyes - has a huge social media following with 11.2 million fans on Instagram and 11.7 million on Twitter, and many are teenagers and young girls.

"We will be offering the product at half price during our Christmas promotion, where the calendar will be on sale for £25.00 from Thursday 16th November".

'The Zoella lifestyle advent calendar is full of 12 exclusive treats which are all clearly listed on boots.com and can not be purchased separately'.

After the controversy about the price of the calendar blew up, a spokeswoman for Zoella Lifestyle said "Zoe is incredibly proud of the Christmas collection and excited to see it in store".

A fourth offensive tweet refers to an unknown woman and says: '@camieee haha, it's like everyone feels sorry for her.

Desperate to get their hands on the festive product, one fan wrote: "Zoella your advent calendar is so cute! Where my input ends is there". That's completely your of my decision-making. I know that there are some of you who might not have known that. And it makes me so sad that anyone would think that was my intention, because that is 100% not my intention'.
