Forget Valentine's Day: It's all about Galentine's Day for the Gogglebox girls

The ladies on Gogglebox Australia talk dating, living the single life, and losing one's virginity!

With Valentine's Day set aside for the loved-up couples of the world, there's an even better day to celebrate another important relationships in your life: the relationship with your female friends.

The Silbery family from Gogglebox Australia knows the drill. When we asked the three gorgeous ladies from Victoria what they were doing this Valentine's Day their response was:

"Our plan for Valentine’s Day is to pretend it’s not Valentine’s Day," before asking if we'd like to join for a "ladies lunch".

In fact, Nanna Emmie said she's never celebrated the pseudo holiday because she doesn't believe in "this American crap". Amen, Emmie.

Also celebrating Galentine's Day are Gogglebox besties, Angie and Yvie, who will spend the day with friends, not lovers.

"I always have a date with my girls on St Valentine's," Yvie told Lifestyle. "They're the real loves of my life!"

Angie also won't be celebrating but she does have fond memories of Valentine's Days past... In fact, her most memorable V-Day was, erm, momentous.

"I was 18 and I lost my virginity on Valentine’s Day in Thailand," Angie revealed. "I was quite the romantic in my younger years!"

As for a special someone in her future, Angie has her eyes peeled for "a nice dude who love dogs, food and are funny." 

Happy Galentine's Day, Goggleboxers!

Gogglebox returns to Australian screens for season 5 on Wed, Feb 15 on Lifestyle.
