A few lucky members of the Battenhall team were at last night's final airing of the season for popular web TV show The Fox Problem, with guests including Richard E. Grant, Daisy Lowe and Gabrielle. Last night's interview was live from the US with Justin Mateen, the co-founder of dating app Tinder, who confidently claimed that one serious marriage proposal a day is being made via the app.
For those of you who haven't heard of The Fox Problem, it's an interactive TV show streamed live on YouTube from the Birdcage pub on Columbia Road, east London, every Tuesday night. The show finalised its second series last night and has received nearly a million views and the likes of Sir Richard Branson being interviewed about space travel live from Necker Island, with Commander Chris Hadfield joining from Las Vegas - during which #thefoxproblem went viral on Twitter.
It's one of the most mobile shows you will ever see, as co-host Georgie Okell is based in New York and presents for the show via Skype and with interviews taking place via Skype live on air from all over the world. As one of the hosts said last night, it has all been one big "online experiment" and definitely a successful one. Read more about The Fox Problem here.
