Loved One Day? Here are 9 TV shows and movies to binge next…


Normal People – BBC iPlayer

Normal People is an adaptation of the book by bestselling author Sally Rooney. This series stars Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar Jones as Connell and Marianne, following their relationship as it develops from their high school, days in small-town Ireland, to the end of their university days in Dublin. If One Day turned you into an emotional wreck, then Normal People will ensure a similar waterfall of tears. The series does a perfect job of capturing what it feels like to be in love for the first time.


Heartstopper – Netflix

Heartstopper is a coming-of-age drama based on the brilliant young adult novel of the same name by Alice Oseman. The series tells the story of Charlie (Joe Locke) and Nick (Kit Conner) as they discover that their rather unlikely friendship might just be something a little more. It’s a gentle, heart-warming watch and is perfect viewing if you’re in need of a little feel-good romantic fix to brighten your day.


Us – BBC iPlayer

Based on a novel by the same author of One Day, David Nicholls, this series looks at the breakdown of the marriage between Douglas (Tom Hollander) and Connie (Saskia Reeves) who both end up on holiday with their son for a trip around Europe. As their trip progresses, we see flashbacks of the couple’s relationship.


Bridgerton – Netflix – coming soon

The long awaited third series of the much-loved romantic period drama will finally arrive on Netflix this Spring. Each new season of Bridgerton focuses on the romance of different members of the Bridgerton family. This series follows the story and romance between Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton).


Love is Blind Season 6 – Netflix

Back with a sixth season, the first batch of new episodes were released on 14th February, very fitting. The series follows single people looking for love and getting to know one another with the twist being they never actually see each other. It’s a less-conventional approach to modern dating and has you hooked from the first episode.




Players – Netflix

If you still want to curl up on the sofa with a good movie then a brand-new rom-com is probably the order of the day. Players star Gina Rodriquez as a member of a group of friends who team up to hook up until she meets somebody (played by Tom Ellis of Lucifer) whom she ends up falling for.


This Is Me Now: A Love Story – Amazon Prime

Last year we saw a resurgence in theatrical concert movies – from Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour to Renaissance: A film by Beyonce. Now it’s time for something a little different from pop superstar Jennifer Lopez.

This is Me…Now: A Love Story gives fans a film which is part musical, part biopic and a whole lot of Jennifer Lopez. Whether you’re a fan of Lopez as an actor or a singer, you will most definitely want to check this out.


Red, White and Royal Blue – Amazon Prime

This rom-com is based on the book of the same name by Casey McQuiston. The story follows a British prince and the son of the American president who have hated each other ever since they first met. When their relationship threatens U.S. and British relations, the two are soon forced to act as best friends – but of course this is a rom-com, and this leads to a very different kind of relationship. There are parts of this movie that are really cheesy but if you’re after some light-hearted entertainment this one fits the bill perfectly.


Love at First Sight – Netflix

Two strangers connect on a flight to London, only to be separated by a twist of fate. A reunion seems unlikely, but love has a way of defying the odds and this film takes us through the ups, downs and sliding door moments of two young people finding each other again. Have the tissues ready for this one because it’s another tearjerker.
