The film, which was released this year, is based upon the 2011 novel The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith.

Directed by Vanessa Caswill and written by Katie Lovejoy, the rom-com stars Haley Lu Richardson alongside Bohemian Rhapsody's Ben Hardy.

The pair are also joined by likes of Dexter Fletcher, Rob Delaney, Sally Phillips and Jameela Jamil.

Well, you'll be happy to know the plot unfolds in one of the most romantic scenarios possible - an airport of all places.
