    Miranda Hart

    If you’re sick of the sight of teddy bears and boxes of chocolates on supermarket shelves for Valentine’s Day – Miranda Hart is here for you.

    “I shall be on Twitter all day to chat to anyone feeling lonely,” the comedian posted on Tuesday night.

    The Call The Midwife star encouraged her followers to tweet using the hashtag #HartsValentineDay.

    Her followers applauded her efforts and began requesting advice and sharing their own Valentine’s experiences.

    “I don’t know the full history of St Valentine but I do know it was a feast day to celebrate love and affection, not a commercial day to make anyone feel lesser, isolated or alone,” Miranda said.

    Miranda began tweeting fans back at noon, writing: “First – big shout out and love to single people out there, especially single people who don’t want to be single. You are loved for just being you.”

    She also tweeted a picture of herself with her dog Peggy, who she described as her “greatest love”.

    Her idea follows in the footsteps of comedian Sarah Millican’s recent Twitter campaign to connect people who were spending Christmas Day alone.

    “The main rule is to be kind,” said Millican. “We’re all here for each other.”
