Valentine’s Day is upon us, and what better way to spend the day than curled up on the sofa with your favourite chocolate, watching your much-loved TV characters fall in love.
To get in the romantic spirit, we’ve put together some of the cheesiest and most swoon worthy moments from the small screen.
Billy’s proposal to Little Mo, EastEnders, 2002
Love comes in all shapes, sizes and … savoury dishes. In an episode of the BBC’s EastEnders, Billy proved what a charmer he was by proposing to Little Mo with a favourite childhood pasta. Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a proposal using alphabet spaghetti!
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, 2011
We couldn’t write a blog about TV’s most romantic moments and not include a royal wedding! The nation came to a standstill in 2011 to watch Prince William and Kate Middleton get married. A truly romantic moment was the newlyweds sharing a kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice, 1995
It’s not necessarily romantic, but it’s certainly swoon worthy. The moment Mr Darcy emerges from a lake is hard to erase from the memory. Romance came later in the series after Darcy finally confesses his love for Elizabeth Bennett and the pair get married.
Matthew Crawley and Lady Mary Grantham proposal, Downton Abbey
After two seasons of ‘will they or won’t they’, Matthew Crawley and Lady Mary Grantham finally declare their love for each other. In a heart-fluttering moment the two end up alone surrounded by falling snow, and Matthew gets down on one knee to propose.
Tim and Dawn finally kiss, The Office Christmas Special, 2003
The Office is well known for it’s mockumentary-style comedy, but the 2003 Christmas special made hearts melt as we saw Tim’s efforts eventually win Dawn over. Just as you think she is about to leave the party with her new boyfriend, Dawn returns and the two finally kiss.
