Love is in the air: The celebrity Valentine’s Day Instagram posts making our hearts melt

Valentine’s Day is here, and if your Instagram feed is looking anything like ours, you may have a pretty hefty amount of loved-up posts to scroll through. Whether you’ve spent the day with your partner, have a delicious dinner planned with your girlfriends, or are spending the night alone with a discounted box of chocolates and a movie (possibly the best option), taking a look at your favourite celebs professing their love on Instagram is definitely going to warm your heart.

With the likes of David and Victoria Beckham sharing some fabulous throw-back pics, Emma Bunton and Vernon Kay reminiscing over their weddings (to different people, of course) and Joel Dommett adding a typically funny spin on the day of romance, there’s a lot to get through. We’ve rounded up just a handful of our favourites to get you started, and, spoiler alert, Holly Willoughby’s Valentine may be the cutest.

Landing on a Monday this year, many people chose to celebrate at the weekend without fear of having too many glasses on a school night. Romantic restaurants were full to the brim with candle-lit dinners and loved-up diners up and down the country. Of course, we believe that showing your partner just how much they mean to you should happen year-round, but it is pretty lovely to receive flowers and dress up a bit – no matter what Joel thinks.

And what better way to show someone you love them than declaring it to millions of people on social media? Some of these celebrities have been together for a very impressive 24 years, and we’ve seen their relationship blossom under the limelight every step of the way. For others, the day of love also brings to light great loss, and our hearts and thoughts go out to anyone missing their partners today – Kerry Washington’s post couldn’t be more perfect.
