Emma Blackery is a part-time, popular YouTuber as well as a musician. She first collaborated with Dan on the 14th of September, 2013. (Video here). Since then, Emma has appeared in 4 episodes of the WWE face-off, The GTA V Heist series (The Second Heist, which also had Steve and Larson in it) as well as Demma Plays, a series which has moved over to Emma's gaming Channel, BirdyBoots.
For a long time, Emma and Dan were furiously shipped, leading to the legendary #Demma. Even though it was later revealed that Luke Cutforth is dating Emma, #Demma is still shipped very strongly, and it lived on in the series: Demma Plays. However, midway through 2016, Luke and Emma broke up, and Dan and Rebecca got married towards the end of the year, so all of the ships were shot down. BUT, 2017 is the year of Demma, with new Demma videos on Emma's channel every Wednesday, so the ship is being brought back from the dead. And based on the opening of the series, it looks like Rebecca will be involved in some episodes, leading to the long awaited #Debemma.
