Hannah Doyle’s Guilty TV Pleasure…

Love Island is back on our screens and we’ll be at the television every evening armed with our branded water bottles for the next three months. But, even if you’re not a Love Island fan, we can guarantee you’ve got a guilty TV pleasure. Hannah Doyle, author of The Year of Saying Yes and BRAND NEW book Just My Type, lets us in on her favourite TV guilty pleasure…Antiques Roadshow anyone?


‘Cancel all plans . . . Love Island is back, baby! Which means that we can replace going out with staying in, eating pizza and calling people ‘melts’. Bliss! Right now I’m busy penning my new book, JUST MY TYPE, but you bet your ass I’ll be watching this series.

You can’t beat classic guilty-pleasure TV, where you have a huge smile plastered across your face for the entire episode. Here are some more of my TV guilty pleasures . . .


Never not grinning at the TV when this is on. I love it when there’s an amazing match. I love it when a granny finds a grandpa to talk about going to ‘dances’ with. I especially love the ones filmed abroad because the sunshine seems to make every date a little extra.


Can’t stop, won’t stop.


It’s not even on yet! It’s only just been commissioned for a new series!! But I’m already so excited that I cannot control my use of exclamation marks!!! Absolute YASSS to this news. Please hurry up and get filming, TV bods.


I’m obsessed with watching celebrities going on dates with ‘normal’ people. Favourite ep. so far . . . when Calum Best went out with a latex-wearing cougar called Izzy. Also all episodes involving ‘too glam to give a damn’ Charlotte Dawson.


How on earth did that get on here? I definitely don’t watch it! Nope. Too busy being young and cool.’


Don’t forget to pre-order Hannah Doyle’s brand new book, Just My Type now 

Meet Jasmine.
– The quirky/cool photographer to a superstar blogger
– She’s going on a date with a SUPER hot guy on the London Eye tonight
– Best friend Mila is her wifey for life
– This millennial is #LivingHerBestLife
But fast-forward a few hours, and the reality isn’t quite so picture perfect. Jasmine hates her stuck-up blogger boss. She can barely afford rent in her stupid London flat. Her best friend seems to have all her sh*t together. Oh, and that date she was so excited about? She got dumped. On the London Eye. In the middle of a thunderstorm. With a bunch of tourists watching…
Best friend Mila decides that Jasmine needs a new ‘type on paper’, because Jasmine’s current criteria is so off that her dating history is one long line-up of fools. So Mila challenges Jasmine to look once, if not twice, at the guys who wouldn’t normally fit her ‘type’. With nothing to lose, Jasmine accepts. Maybe, just maybe, she’ll surprise herself.
