Bobby Seagull, 36, who shot to fame on University Challenge in 2017, says he fears he’s destined to ‘become an old bachelor with a bunch of Casio calculators, protractors and maths problems’ for company
Quiz show legend Bobby Seagull has revealed he has been booted off a dating app – following concerns that his profile was FAKE!
The maths whizz and author, who recently starred in Channel 4’s The Answer Trap, shared how he did not know whether to “laugh” or “cry”.
He wrote to followers: “Not sure whether to laugh, cry or just shrug my shoulders.
He added: “On dating apps, I’ve had a few people message recently saying I’m a catfish. Now I’ve been booted off.”
He accompanied the post with a laughing emoji and tagged in Hinge – the dating app, which claims to specialise in long-term connections and is “designed to be deleted,” according to its website.
Bobby then added: “I’m destined to become an old bachelor with a bunch of Casio calculators, protractors and maths problems.”
One Twitter user jokingly replied: “So, what you’re saying is that you’ve become unhinged?”
