Valentine’s Day: The Sofa Slob

Not so fond of expending energy, your snuggle bear is most often found in the sitting position – watching telly, listening to music, surfing the internet or playing computer games.

Date ideas: Take your cutie-pie couch potato out to experience their favourite soap, sci-fi, sport (that’s snooker, of course) and reality TV dance programme live. New stand-up tours by randomist Ross Noble and shmuck Omid Djalili will have your hun falling out of their seat with laughter. Or get tickets to a rock musical where down-and-out leading man Dewey Finn, something of a sofa slob himself, makes good.

Here are some suggestions:

The Emmerdale Studio Experience, ongoing at Burley Road, Leeds

Star Trek: The Exhibition, until 16 Apr at Exhibition Space, Blackpool

Welsh Open, 13 – 17 Feb at Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff

Strictly Come Dancing, 9 – 10 Feb at The SSE Arena, Wembley and 11 – 12 Feb at The O2, London

Ross Noble: Brain Dump, 10 Feb at New Theatre Oxford, 11 Feb at The Marlow Theatre, Canterbury and 12 Feb at Shrewsbury Theatre, Severn

Omid Djalili: Schmuck for a Night, 10 Feb at Alhambra Theatre, Bradford, 11 Feb at White Rock Theatre, Hastings and 12 Feb at Theatre Royal, Brighton

School of Rock the Musical, until 28 May at New London Theatre
