Six people are battling it out to rent a single bed in a kitchen for £1,083 a month.


Expensive has revealed a post uploaded to its website advertises a ''shoeboax studio'' apartment which features sleeping quarters for one, a hob and a sink, in London's Old Street.

What's more, they say half a dozen seekers are competing to rent a double room on the market at an average price of £692-per-month in London.

Meanwhile, the site has urged renters to look ''just outside of London'' where a detached three-bed house located in Shenfield, Essex, is just a shy 23 minutes away from Liverpool Street Station and costs just £795 per month.
