“This year, I want YOU to be my Valentine. We’ll have a romantic candle-lit meal, maybe some champagne, and see where the meal takes us. It’s for a good cause, so will you be mine? If yes, click here,” dressed in a suave grey suit and a bronze tie, Idris says to camera: “I’d like you to be my Valentine. That’s right, love. Just you and me, no one else around. Just us.”
The Luther star, 44, is using his heartthrob status to land a Valentine’s date and raise money for the W.E. Can Lead charity campaign at the same time.
W.E. Can Lead envisions a world where EVERY girl receives a quality education, her inherent potential is fully realized & she is able to influence her world.
W.E. Can Lead is committed to ensuring young girls receive the educational opportunity, leadership development and mentoring support necessary to become the new generation of female leaders across the continent of Africa. Safe spaces are created for girls to learn critical life skills, build self-esteem and defy the cultural norms that hinder them from fulfilling their full potential. W.E. Can Lead strive to empower girls to become influential leaders and decision-makers in their homes, communities and eventually, their country.

While one hopeful female said: ‘I’ll just check with my hubby to see if he’s ok with me meeting you – if not I’ll meet you behind the bike shed ( I’m the one wearing a ‘I love luther’ badge)’
