Fancy a Valentine's Day date with the supremely cool Idris Elba? Here's how you can get one

Know anyone that might be interested?

Regardless if you're a man or woman, single or married, straight or gay, there's one undeniable fact about Idris Elba. The actor is cooler than the other side of the pillow. The star of Luther, The Wire and Thor has heavily been tipped as a potential Bond and it's easy to see why.

Aside from being a fantastic actor, renowned DJ and effortlessly charming, Elba's recent venture into the world of kickboxing has proven that he's well able to kick some ass when required.

Simply put, women want him and men want to be him. We'll just skip past the part when Omar and Brother Mouzone wanted to kill him in The Wire.

Unlike Stringer Bell's grizzly ending in the iconic show, we're certain that a Valentine's Day date with Elba would be a much happier experience, and you could be his date. The star of The Dark Tower and Star Trek Beyond is offering one lucky fan the chance to be his Valentine and it's all for a great cause.

All you have to do is make a donation to W.E. Can Lead, an organisation that Elba is very passionate about because it provides development and leadership programmes for girls in Sierra Leone.

If your application is successful, Elba promises to deliver on a "romantic candle-lit meal, maybe some champagne, and see where the meal takes us."

Truth be told, we're very tempted to apply. Aside from hanging out with one of the coolest men on the planet, it would be a great opportunity to get some updates about on any potential new season of Luther!
