Over the years, it seems that St Valentine's Day has become hijacked by people in relationships.

So we think it's about time we returned to the true meaning of this holiest most romantic of days: namely, that it's about giving single people the chance to declare their love for someone.

And helping us in this crusade is Brian, above - who took it upon himself to ask, well, a number of people if they would be his Valentine.

Turns out that doing so - armed with a bunch of yellow flowers - is actually a pretty good way of getting someone's phone number. Who knew?!
