Love in the Villa sees the always watchable and likeable Kat Graham back on our screens as a hyper organised young woman named Julie.
Julie is dating Brandon, and the two have planned a trip to romantic Verona where Julie thinks Brandon will finally pop the question.
But before she can even get there, Brandon dumps her leaving her heartbroken.
So with nothing else to do, she decides to go to Italy anyway. But from the get-go nothing goes to plan, especially when she arrives at the villa only to discover that it has been double booked.
Now Julie will have to share her vacation with a very good-looking but cynical British man named Charlie (Tom Hopper, The Umbrella Academy).
When the two initially don't get along Julie decides to drive him out of the villa. But Charlie won't go so easily and after some minor disagreements, they decide to make the best of a bad situation.
Unsurprisingly, they actually start to get along and realise that maybe sharing the villa and the holiday is not such a bad thing.

Is Love in the Villa Worth Watching?
Kat Graham (The Holiday Calendar) is her wonderful self again and it really is great to see Tom Hopper play a character other than Luther Hargreaves.
Their on screen chemistry pops and who doesn't love a plot where a rented villa comes with its own annoyingly attractive stranger – in a fun way that is!
You won't get anything unique with Love in the Villa but you will get Kat Graham and Tom Hopper having fun and falling in love witha few laughs thrown in.
And there's nothing really wrong with any of that.
