What To Watch On Telly If You’re Staying Inside This Weekend

Who said limited social interaction can’t be fun?!

For multiple reasons, many of us will be staying at home this weekend. 

Putting social distancing into place, on top of the awful weather we’re having, it’s fair to say that a lot of us are going to be searching Netflix and our TV guides for something to keep our minds from thinking about the shitshow happening in the world right now. 

So, let’s grab the opportunity to stay indoors with both (well washed) hands. Wrap yourself up in a blanket and reach for some snacks, and get ready to morph into full potato mode, TV remote in tow. 

Here’s a list of all the telly goodness you can feast your eyes on this weekend. 

Ant And Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway

The lads are back and you absolutely love to see it. If anything can take our minds off the shitty-ness going on in the world right now it’s Ant and Dec’s cheeky little faces. From gas sketches to great celebrity guests, tune in to Virgin Media One at 7pm tomorrow night for the lols. 

Lost Girls 

A brand new movie which drops on Netflix tonight. Lost Girls follows the story of a woman desperately searching for her missing daughter. Her search leads police to resolving the unsolved cases of murdered sex workers, which is based on a true story. Get cosy for 1.5 hours and enjoy!
