We girls in the Reveal office like to be spoilt but even we were flabbergasted at just how much Valentine's Day will apparently cost us Brits.

Our day of love and romance will cost us an estimated £836m - that is a lot of roses, chocolates and cards!

Valentine's day costs us Brits a whopping £836m

Barclays believe that us lovestruck loons will take £466m from cash machines to treat our loved ones - and then will spend a further £370m on debit cards.

Out of this, £5m will be spent in florists, £6m will be spent on jewellery and £1m each in confectioners and card and gift shops.

And a whopping £55m will go on eating out.

So J.Lo was pretty off the mark when she told us love don't cost a thing!
