You’re on a date, and it’s going well. The other person excuses themselves to go to the loo and then you get a text… from them

Virgin Mobile Valentine’s Day video and prize draw 

We’ve all sent a text to the wrong person – but have you ever done it on purpose? That’s exactly what happened when Virgin Mobile sent a group of single guys on a date they’ll never forget in this hilarious video that is sure to make you smile.


When the girls disappear for a comfort break, they accidentally send a “progress report” to their dates instead of their friends. But how will the guys react when they receive their text? And will they fess up to receiving the messages? Find out now in the full video below, and then read on for your chance to win a special Valentine’s Day treat…

All this talk of Valentine’s Day will probably put you into one of two distinctive camps. There are those who’ve been looking forward to it for months – planning which presents to buy for their partner or crush with extensive Pinterest boards, preparing the perfect meal (in or out) and writing the sort of card that would make a rock star blush.


Then there’s the other camp: the haters. The thought of this hallmark holiday sends haters into a frothy, crimson rage. If you see yourself in this group, you’ll probably go out of your way to avoid anything in the shape of a heart, shun any restaurant where the tables have been split into lots of twos and fire eye daggers at anyone who asks: “did you get any nice cards?”


Whatever your feelings, Virgin Mobile has you covered. For the V-Day lovers out there, there’s a chance to win a magical trip for two in the air with an amazing hot air balloon ride (worth £375), where you’ll take in incredible views of places you’ve never seen before.


Meanwhile, for the Valentine’s Day haters, there’s a chance to win a solo escape away from the V-Day noise, with a £375 Virgin Experience Days gift voucher to spend on the experience of your choice. How will you treat yourself? From miniature pigs and cat emporiums to Michelin-starred dining experiences and driving days, there’s something for everyone.


Simply follow the instructions below and enter the draw to win. Good luck!
