Badoo has over 425 million users in 190 markets. In 2019, the brand relaunched with a “Date honestly” campaign identifying as the platform that enables people to authentically express who they are and what they really want. Badoo aims to tackle some of the issues that prevent people from feeling like they can date honestly, such as poor body image or stigma surrounding mental health. You may have heard our podcast series with Mel B aka Scary Spice called The Truth Flirts where we explore all of these topics in detail with some special guests!


Bumble was first founded to challenge the antiquated rules of dating. Now, Bumble empowers users to connect with confidence whether dating, networking, or meeting friends online. We’ve made it not only necessary but acceptable for women to make the first move, shaking up outdated gender norms. We prioritise kindness and respect, providing a safe online community for users to build new relationships. Bumble has 55m users worldwide. There are over 2bn matches per day and over 1bn first moves have already been made.
