Brief encounter leads to proposal
A Bristol woman who thought she was going to see an "arty" film as a birthday treat received an unusual marriage proposal.
Radio sports reporter Pete Simson, 26, from Bedminster, Bristol, hired the Watershed in Bristol to propose to his partner Hannah McDonagh, 25.
In the film, Mr Simson appeared dancing in front of many West Country landmarks.
After the brief film Mr Simson proposed and a delighted Miss McDonagh accepted.
As part of his plan Mr Simson, who works for BBC Somerset, had organised staff from the Watershed and other cinema customers to be in on the act.
After the lights went down and the adverts finished the camera revealed Mr Simson in his underpants miming to Daniel Bedingfield's pop hit If You're Not The One.
Trainee lawyer Miss McDonagh said there were a few titters when the film started.
"Pete told me to keep watching. I never thought he would go to these lengths but it is typical of Pete, he likes to be in the spotlight.

"The film looked awesome, really professional on the big screen, and it was hilarious."
She said the film might get re-screened at the wedding, or possibly a sequel.
Round of applause
The five minute-long spoof shows Mr Simson in a variety of colourful pants writhing on a bed, looking wistfully over a cliff top and walking along a beach as he mimes to the ballad.
It was filmed on location across Bristol and Somerset, taking in the sights of Cheddar Gorge, Brean Down beach, Ashton Court estate and the Clifton Suspension Bridge.
After the screening finished at the Watershed, a spotlight came on Mr Simson who got down on one knee and proposed to Miss McDonagh to a round of applause.
"I wanted to propose in a way that was thoughtful but I have never taken myself very seriously so a romantic meal wouldn't be in keeping with my character," Mr Simson said.
