Virgin Media Television has announced details of its brand new Spring TV Schedule - which includes season two of the Adrian Dunbar-starring drama Blood.

When Blood returns in February, Dunbar’s character Jim Hogan will be dealing with the shock arrest of his eldest daughter Fiona for murder as his family crumbles around him.

Next Monday sees the return of the much talked about Love Island. New host Laura Whitmore will be flying the Irish flag as the cameras head to South Africa for the winter edition of the hit reality show.

The Guards: Inside The K is a brand new documentary series that's due in March, offering viewers unprecedented access to the work carried out by An Garda Síochána in some of the toughest scenarios possible.

VMTV will continue to be the home of top class sport including the best of European football, international rugby, and the biggest and best horse racing meetings from the UK.
