She might be eternally single, but Amelia Dimoldenberg knows how to do Valentine’s Day right. The “Chicken Shop Date” star threw a party to celebrate love on 9 Feb., complete with a “kissing booth” photo booth and aptly named cocktails including “Dimz in Love” and “Cupid’s Chokehold”. “I’m all about love and I’m always looking for love. I just think it’s such an important part of life and can be made to be so fun. So Valentine’s should be such a fun day,” she tells POPSUGAR. “If anything, I think for a single person, New Year’s is more intense than Valentine’s . . . you can also celebrate the love that you have with your friends and just in general. Because there’s so much more love in one’s life than just your romantic love.”
The 29-year-old is not letting her relationship status rule her V-Day, and neither should she. With so much to celebrate, including her recent Golden Globes red carpet moment and another year as the ambassador for beauty brand, Olay, there’s a lot of love for 2023’s golden girl. Yet her dating life has been up for public consumption over the last decade via her successful YouTube series, so we do have a vested interest in her quest to find a partner. Having shared chicken nuggets with the likes of Jack Harlow, Matty Healy, and Keke Palmer, who would be her dream Valentine’s date?
“I’ll probably have to say Andrew Garfield,” she declares, following their double red carpet meeting where clips of them flirting immediately went viral. But then Dimoldenberg makes a sudden u-turn. “Actually no, I’m going to change my mind. I’m going to say Central Cee. Because Andrew will happen but maybe Valentine’s puts too much pressure on the day.” Why Central Cee? “I’m sure he’d fly me out somewhere. That is probably his vibe.”
Having met hundreds of celebrities, she maintains that Louis Theroux is the one who made her most starstruck. Burna Boy is a “star”, she adds, while Maya Jama made her “jittery”. “She has this crazy energy like star presence. And she just lights up the room,” she says. The pair have since become friends, so would she consider going on a dating show like “Love Island“? Unlikely, she says, although the best dating advice she’s ever been given is “to not put all your eggs in one basket when you are dating” which sounds a lot like the ITV reality show’s concept to us . . .
