The Cast of Big Year in Big School: Virgin Media One

The kettle’s boiled, the cushions are plumped, and the remote is nestled in your palm. There’s only one question to ask: what’s on the telly? Well, on Virgin Media Television this season, the answer is everything!


Whether you’re a drama devotee, a sports nut, a reality fiend or a news junkie, this season’s schedule is stuffed with all the excitement your eyes can handle – and the fun’s already begun! So before you hop towards Virgin Media One on Virgin TV 103, Virgin Media Two (105), Virgin Media Three (106), or Virgin Media Sport (400), get a load of what awaits in the weeks and months ahead…




The brand-new homegrown hit The Deceived, airing Mondays at 9pm on Virgin Media One, already has the country abuzz, and it’s just the start of the delectable drama coming your way this season. Whether it’s David Tennant starring in true crime drama Des, the sharp satire Singapore Grip, the compelling police thriller Trigger Point, and so many more, there’s going to be laughter and tears, joy and despair, and just about everything besides thanks to a slate of series to tickle anyone’s fancy!




It’s a year like no other in the world of sports, but one thing remains the same; Virgin Media Sports will bring you the best spot to catch the finest action around! Whether it’s the conclusion of the Heineken Champions Cup (including this Sunday with Toulouse v Ulster) and the Guinness Six Nations, or the kickoff of a brand new season of UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, you’re guaranteed your fix of kicks in the coming months – and that’s without even mentioning the cream of the horse racing calendar and loads more sporting spectacles to keep an eye out for!




We’re used to seeing Ms Kennedy pitch up at someone’s door for a stay – but the tables have turned in Lodging With Lucy, starting September 28th, which sees her become the hostess with the mostess! The fresh and fantastic First Love involves former flames reuniting after years apart, while OAP B&B forms new – and unlikely – pairings between young and old in the most radical house-share show you’ve ever seen! Throw in the watch-it-alls of Gogglebox Ireland breaking down what’s on screen every Wednesday at 9pm on Virgin Media One, and that’s a lot of evenings’ entertainment taken care of!




Looking for love, singing for stardom, battling the elements and rowing for their lives – there’s a whole lot going on in the coming months when it comes to reality TV! Love Island USA hits an isolated penthouse in Las Vegas, while Britain’s Got Talent (now airing Saturdays on Virgin Media One) and The Voice see the stars of tomorrow take their moment to shine. A new season of I’m A Celebrity promises to put famous faces through the wringer, while Don’t Rock The Boat will see well-known names attempting to row their way to victory. Now that’s what we call a busy schedule!




The upcoming season of factual programming will touch on every part of Irish life – from the youngsters of Big Year In Big School, airing Sundays on Virgin Media One, to a look back at the life of the late, and legendary football icon in Being Jack Charlton. There’s a fly-on-the-wall look Inside Ireland’s Women’s Prison, which promises the same type of compelling storytelling and revealing insights that made The Guards: Inside The K such a hit, while Zara King tells the story of a once-in-a-lifetime year in Life Under Lockdown: Covid-19 In Ireland.




The shows you know and love are all primed and ready to go too – all of them! Tommy Bowe is the new face on the best way to wake up everyday, Ireland AM, while Ciara Doherty joins Matt Cooper to review the day’s activities on The Tonight Show. Your teatime needs are covered by The Six O’Clock Show, while Virgin Media News will continue to keep the nation abreast of everything worth knowing throughout the day.
