Daniel Roche tells us about his Facebook impostor

CBBC and Outnumbered star Daniel Roche got a surprise when his friends said they found him on Facebook - because he doesn't have an account!

It turned out to be an impostor pretending to be the Just William star - who's not even old enough to be on Facebook.

So, with his mum's help, the actor tried to get the fake profile removed. He posted a video message on Facebook to tell everyone he had nothing to do with it.

The profile was eventually taken down, but Daniel spoke to Newsround's Ricky ahead of Safer Internet Day (8 February 2011) to highlight just how easy it is to get caught out online...
