Parents take note, your child's video game habit could spell a successful future if these Irish twins are anything to go by.

Ryan and Scott Fizsimons (25) have earned €1 million each from their online videos which see them voice over their gaming escapades.

A report in today's Sunday Times details how the brothers have 2.87m subscribers on their YouTube channel which features voiceovers by the brothers whilst they play Minecraft video games.

According to the report, accounts filed before Christmas by the company Little Lizards Ltd show profits of €351,842 after paying out more than €2 million in salaries.

The revenue is created by advertising on the YouTube platform.
