INFLUENCERS are known to score hoards of freebies in exchange for a "shout out" on their huge online platforms. But this tactic recently backfired for one blogger who tried to nab a free takeaway meal, but ended up at the police station instead. Four Legs - a pop-up restaurant operating at pub The Compton Arms in Islington is being praised for its extremely savage response to the blogger who reached out to ask for free food. Not only did the unnamed influencer request a meal for themselves in exchange for a plug on Instagram, but they asked for an extra four meals for their "bubble" too. The influencer reached out to the restaurant via DMs and said they'd post to their Instagram and even pop in for a meal once the venue reopens. The restaurant appeared to go along with the request at first, agreeing to offer the food for free.

Drama Murder returned to BBC Two on Thursday night and it was a confusing affair. The format-smashing programme which won a BAFTA award in 2012 for a stand alone episode - returned for the first of a three part series of films, and it had lost none of its quality or Scandi-noir themes. The Third Voice, set in the Borders of Scotland, it centres around a fishing trip with Leo and his brother-in-law Rafe Carey.
