Rubbish weather calls for one thing and one thing only – binge-watching TV shows. In our eyes, finishing an entire series in one day *is* productive. Because if you watch every episode on the Sunday, that leaves the rest of the week to get stuff done, right?
Often, the hardest part of a duvet day is choosing what to watch. Too many times do we spend 20 minutes flicking through streaming services, only to inevitably put on a re-run of friends (again). So, to save you from indecision, and from watching same episode for the 18th time, here’s our favourite Netflix shows that are brilliant to watch and totally binge-worthy. Make sure you up your snack game accordingly.

But will anyone find their soul mate? And if so, will they make it to ‘I do’?
