What to watch this week: Romance special, featuring Starstruck and Emily in Paris

We’ve nearly reached the most romantic day of the year.

And whether you plan to be cuddled up next to a loved one, or wallowing in the self-pity of singledom, we’ve gathered the best viewing material for February 14, and the days around it.

From a modern classic about the rule that opposites attract, to a returning guilty Parisian pleasure, we’ve got you covered.



If, like us, you’ve been on tenterhooks ever since we left Jessie and Tom sitting on that London bus, staring dreamily into each other’s eyes, and ignoring the little voice in her head that’s going ‘hang on a minute, plane tickets to New Zealand are flipping expensive’ then relief is at hand: the second season of Starstruck drops on Monday.

Picking up exactly where they left off – yes, we’re back on that bus – Rose Matafeo and Nikesh Patel spark up the lively chemistry that was so striking in Starstruck’s first run.

It’s a love story built on opposites attracting: slacker Jessie and film star Tom move in different worlds but fate has brought them together. And we all want to believe in fate, don’t we?

Box set available on Monday.

Still in the mood for love, try these…


Feel Good

Love hurts for Mae (Mae Martin) and George (Charlotte Ritchie) in this two season rollercoaster of emotions which finds Mae trying to come to terms with a troubled past and move on.

Despite rave reviews Martin insists there will be no more episodes: the ending is the ending.


Emily In Paris

Fluffier than a cappuccino in a whirlwind, this guiltiest of guilty pleasures finds marketer Lily Collins amour triangling her way around cute beaux while navigating catty catwalks and snooty Parisians while charming everyone she meets.

Who will win her heart? Ooh la and la.


Love, Victor

Being a gay Latino teenager in Atlanta is no joyride but this softly charming coming out tale is no miseryfest.

A sequel to hit indie movie Love, Simon, lead actor Michael Cimino is believably mixed up as our hero Victor – you’ll be rooting for him to find true love.
