More news, no ads


A TV crew was filming in Bishop's Stortford's Market Square on Wednesday (June 16).

The team from Rumpus Media, which produces The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan for BBC Two, was working on the third series of Joe Lycett's Got Your Back for Channel 4.

In the programmes, the comedian, who also presents BBC One's Great British Sewing Bee, tackles genuine consumer complaints with his assistant Mark Silcox and a weekly celebrity guest.

As part of his championing of the underdog, Lycett changed his name by deed poll to Hugo Boss after the German fashion house told other businesses not to use the name Boss, including a warning about two beers – Boss Boss and Boss Black – produced by Swansea's Boss Brewing.

The Rumpus crew in the town centre were filming members of the public intrigued by a large black box.

The monolith has a QR code sticker on either side which takes users to Flux Facts, the Twitter feed of @Flux_Facts set up last month. The account has a string of "facts" about Adrian Flux – such as "Adrian Flux shouts 'Poop Poop' whenever an insurance contract is signed" – and uses the hashtag #whatisthatblackbox.

What appeared to be Joe Lycett's voice could be heard reeling out random facts from the box, which was in Chelmsford city centre on Tuesday (June 15).
