Valentines Day NOT your thing?

Valentines Day

Not feeling the romance, there’s still a whole load of entertainment to love! 


The Little Stranger


Available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €4.99


Last issue’s cover star Domhnall Gleeson and Ruth Wilson might share a burgeoning courtship – but a romcom this ain’t! Lenny Abrahamson’s psychological drama is deliciously dark and awesomely atmospheric, with a few spine-tingling thrills thrown in for good measure.


The Orville


FOX, Virgin TV 126, Thursdays, 9pm


Family Guy head honcho Seth McFarlane leads the way in this sci-fi comedy, which puts its own twist on space exploration. The first go-round was clever, camp and impressively creative – which is why we’re firmly on board as Season 2 lifts off!



All six seasons available now on Virgin Box Sets

It’s one of the most engrossing, absorbing and mysterious shows in TV history – and every twist and turn is here waiting for you to dive in. Surviving a plane crash is usually enough drama for anyone – but for this gang thrown together on a tropical island, it’s just the start!


The On Screen Characters We’d certainly swipe right to! 


In the online dating world, finding Mr or Mrs Swipe-Right would be an awful lot easier if we could somehow magic this lot onto the system. Plus, we’ve even included what we reckon would be some of their favourite date night treats. Who would you pick?


Cameron Tucker


Modern Family, Sky One, Virgin TV 114 Much as we’re loath to imagine Mitch and Cam breaking up, we can’t pretend we haven’t fallen entirely under his spell. His hilarious over-the-top theatrics, larger-than-life personality and even bigger heart make him one sure recipe for success!


Amelia Shepard

Grey’s Anatomy, Seasons 1-14 available now on Virgin Box Sets


Strong, smart and successful?! Imagine your luck! As a renowned surgeon, she’s probably going to have busy schedule – but that just makes an opportunity to share a glass of something special all the more exciting… You might have a battle with a certain fiery ginger on your hands though. Best of luck!


Olivia Pope

Scandal, Seasons 1-7 available now on Virgin Box Sets

Tired of trying to make polite conversation about your date’s boring job? Well, that shouldn’t be an issue here! You’d never be short of talking points with this fixing badass across the table – and if power

really is an aphrodisiac…


Sharon Morris 

Catastrophe, Seasons 1-4 available now on All4


First off, any Irish mammy would be happy if you brought a schoolteacher home! One as quick-witted and entertaining as this would ensure there’s rarely a dull moment, either – even if she’s kicked the boozy brunches for good!


Wade Wilson 

Deadpool 2, available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €4.99


Okay, so he might have his fair share of baggage – but a good sense of humour goes a long way! Plus, we’ve seen he has the sensitive side to warm any heart, so who better to cuddle up with for a cosy evening?!





Xander Cage

xXx: Return of Xander Cage, available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €2.99 All those clichés about loving a bad boy? Turns out they’re on the money! He’s got the tattoos, the bulging biceps, and the sort of nonchalant attitude that piques your

interest whether you like it or not; just don’t go trying to change him!
