The Gang We'd Want Round Our Thanksgiving Table

Best Thanks giving dinner guests

Our pals across the pond are stuffing the turkey, saucing the cranberries, and doing whatever it is you do to yams; Thanksgiving is almost upon us! Yes, the USA! USA! USA! will be in a party mood this Thursday – and we’re itching to get involved! Jetting across the atlantic to pull up a chair seems a tall order at this stage, though – so we’re building our own holiday crew from the comfort of our own home!


From the grub to the games, we’ve pulled together a party posse that could mix it with the best of them – so grab a seat and give thanks!



Ratatouille, available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €2.99


An event like this is nothing without a deadly spread to fill the belly – and this is one rat who knows how to whip up a dinner to keep everyone happy!




Yesterday, available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €4.99


No get-together can survive without some belting tunes, and the bloke who does the Beatles like nobody – and we mean nobody! – else would be a surefire hit!




Aladdin, available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €4.99


Forgot something on the shopping list? Need an extra chair to keep everyone comfy? Or, in fact, do you need anything at all in the universe?! This is one guy who’d be handy to have on your side when entertaining!




Eastenders, RTÉ One, Virgin TV 101


Keeping the drinks flowing is always necessary at a knees-up, so calling on the Queen Vic’s main man doesn’t sound like a bad idea! Added bonus: he’d be a godsend when it comes to sending guests packing!




Friends, available now on Netflix, Virgin TV 999


A chef by trade, we imagine Mon would be a great helping hand with the catering – but it’s her hobby of obsessive cleaning that we’re most interested in! Waking up to a mess? Not on her watch!




Captain America: The Winter Soldier, available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €2.99


Last, but most certainly not least! Want to celebrate America? Well, inviting literally CAPTAIN AMERICA to the party only seems right and proper!
