When you think about it, there's actually loads you can do from the comfort of your own home - and if you have a TV and games console - even better.

Whiling away your hours at home might be becoming tiresome at this stage, and you might be fit for a holiday away from your family members, but there's absolutely heaps of great TV, movies, and video games to catch up on if you're in need of some me-time. Below we have our staying in guide, with the best things you can be getting up to this week.

Later this week, there are a couple of must-watch shows on the box for you, with the finale of 'First Dates Ireland' arriving on RTE Two this Thursday, as well as the return of 'The Graham Norton Show' on Friday at its new timeslot of 9pm.

If movies are what you're looking for, then there are two brand new releases available as digital copies this week. For the family there's 'Trolls World Tour', while 'Just Mercy' is available online if you're looking for a legal drama. And if you've got an Amazon Prime account, then make sure to catch Jennifer Lopez's movie 'Hustlers' if you missed it while it was in the cinemas last year.

Otherwise, the gamers in the house will be looking forward to the release of 'Final Fantasy VII Remake' this Friday on PS4. Happy gaming!
