Inbetweeners' James Buckley shamed by wife over his 'selfish' Valentine's Day plans

Inbetweeners' James Buckley shamed by wife over his 'selfish' Valentine's Day plans

She found the perfect way to get back at him

Inbetweeners star James Buckley got called out by his wife Clair after she discovered his plans for Valentine's Day.

Yes, that day on the calendar earmarked for romance and passion disappears into the past for yet another year, so it's time to chuck the cards in the recycling and see if there's any chocolate on sale at the supermarket.

Since everyone is looking to treat that special someone to a romantic time, it's a busy day of the year for the restaurants, and Buckley made sure he'd booked a table.

Only it wasn't his wife he'd booked the meal out with, as he'd instead made plans to go for dinner with one of his friends as it was a day they were both available.

If anything it proves how scheduling is the greatest challenge of adult life, though James ended up having to answer for it as Clair called him out in the most creative of ways.

The pair were recording an episode of their In Sickness and in Health podcast when they got a letter describing a scenario which sounded suspiciously similar to James.

"My husband and I have been together for almost 14 years, and although we've never made a big deal of Valentine's Day. We've never done anything for Valentine's Day," the letter The Inbetweeners star read out began.

"This year he has booked what I can only describe as a romantic meal for two - a table at his favourite restaurant - that I love too, at 6pm on the 14th of February.

"When I asked him about it, as it popped up in our shared calendar, he informed me that this booking was for him and his friend Chris.

"Should I be annoyed/worried?"

Realising what had happened, James burst out laughing and Clair joined in before explaining to the couple's listeners a bit more about the situation.

She explained that their shared calendar popped up with a notification about a meal at her husband's favourite curry house for 6pm on Valentine's Day.

While the two of them seemingly didn't make a habit of doing something big on Valentine's Day she naturally thought she'd be occupying the other seat at the table for two her husband booked.

Instead, he popped up to ask her: "You don't mind if I go out with Chris Valentine's Day, do you?"

Speaking in his defence, James said he'd 'only got about three friends and he's one of them', and Valentine's Day was a time when both he and Chris were free.

He said: "A solid relationship and a solid marriage does not revolve around Valentine's Day. We've never done anything for Valentine's Day. Every day should be Valentine's Day."

Fair point.
