Idris Elba Could Be Your Date This Valentine's Day


Who is your dream Valentine? Leonardo DiCaprio? Ryan Gosling? General consensus at the Grazia offices is Idris Elba scores high up on our dream date list.

So for all you fellow Idris Elba fans, you can now legitimately have dinner with the smooth talker himself. On the most romantic day of the year. Yes, really.

The Luther actor posted a video on his Facebook, asking viewers to join him for a ‘night you will not forget.’ And true to his word, you really will not...

"Hi there - Idris Elba here. And I’d like you to be my Valentine. That’s right love. Just you and me, no one else around. Just us."

"We’ll get things started off with cocktails. Or perhaps...champagne. And once we’re feeling comfortable, we can order whatever your heart desires," Elba pledges [heart skipping a beat]. "Maybe some truffles, perhaps some steak. Pepper soup and fufu. That’s an African dish, and you pounds the yams."

‘And you know what? I’ll let you pound my yams. And for dessert you can have whatever you want. And I mean whatever you want.’

All you have to do to be in with a chance? Head to, and make a donation to support W.E. Can Lead – which helps to empower and educate girls thoughout Africa. As if we couldn’t love this guy anymore?

Concluding, “So will you be my Valentine?”

A thousand times yes.
