Very British Problems
Rob Temple, the man behind Very British Problems, has an English and Philosophy degree from Nottingham and has been a journalist for a decade writing for national newspapers and men’s mags.
He started @soverybritish in December 2013 and now has over 4M followers. Crippled by social anxiety, he enjoys writing about being awkward because it’s therapeutic to read comments which assure him that he’s very far from alone when it comes to awkward behaviour.
Rob Temple’s first book, Very British Problems, was published in the UK in Autumn 2013 by Little, Brown, and Very British Problems Abroad, followed in September 2015. In October 2017, Very British Problems III was also published by Little, Brown.
The television show, Very British Problems, based on the Twitter feed, aired on Channel 4 in August 2015. His merchandising range is produced by Papanui and greetings cards by Woodsmansterne.
Very British Problems is represented by Juliet Mushens at Caskie Mushens Ltd.
