Ricky meets the boys (April 2015)

Ten years ago, one dad uploaded a video of his sons to YouTube so that relatives could watch it, because the file was too big to send by email.

Little did he know that from that moment on, his boys would become internet megastars!

In the video, Harry (the older brother) puts his finger dangerously near to Charlie's mouth - and his little brother bites him.

And the famous line 'Charlie bit me!' was born!

The boys' dad Howard could never have imagined that, tens years later, the video would have got almost 850 MILLION views on YouTube, becoming one of the most-watched and most famous videos ever to have gone on the internet.
