We’ve included the official statement from Virgin Media below, which came after a reply to a few customers asking what’s wrong with YouTube today.

There’s not been an update to the official Twitter account since the confirmation of a YouTube outage, or at least connection issues if you’re a Virgin Media customer. We expect the problems to be solved shortly, although you can leave updates on our YouTube Down Today page to share status updates with the community.
