With just ten days to go until the tournament kicks off, the broadband provider has unveiled a season of programming tailored specifically to World Cup widows.
Handpicked by Peter Crouch’s squeeze and scouse glamourpuss Abbey Clancy, shows screening on Virgin Media’s on-demand TV service throughout June take in Gossip Girl and the evergreen Friends.
Plus, for those you who take their entertainment a little racier, there’s The Secret Diary of A Call Girl and Gordon Ramsey’s epic swearathon-cum-cooking show The F Word.
Quoth our Abbey: "While I’ll definitely be cheering on Pete and our boys this summer, it’s fantastic Virgin Media On Demand have let me host a selection of girly TV favourites so that we can take a break from football when we want as well.
"So go on, treat yourself to the ultimate girls’ night in with some popcorn and pampering, complete with a dose of George Clooney."
If all that doesn’t float your boat, you might also be interested to know that Virgin Media customers with an XL TV package recently got free access to the Karaoke Channel.
