A new Netflix show has viewers hooked - and also reaching for the tissues.
It dropped just in time for Valentine's Day, and it's guaranteed to make you insist you've just got something in your eye.
The limited series tells the story of Dex and Emma, who reunite on the same day each year.
It's based off a 2009 David Nicholls novel which was adapted into a 2011 film starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess.
The story begins in 1988 when Emma Morley and Dexter Mayhew meet on graduation night.
In each episode, the two encounter each other in different years.
One Day follows their relationship, as they grow together and fall apart.
Ambika Mod plays Em and Leo Woodall plays Dex, with Tim McInnerny, Amber Grappy, Jonny Weldon, Eleanor Tomlinson, Joely Richardson, and Toby Stephens playing supporting roles.
You can take a look at the heartrending trailer below:
Mod has previously received acclaim and a Royal Television Society Award for her role in the limited series This Is Going To Hurt.
Woodall is best known for his role in smash hit The White Lotus, for which he won a Screen Actors Guild Award as part of an ensemble cast.
He has also made appearances in Vampire Academy, Cherry and Holby City.
Since being released on February 8, the series has generated a lot of emotion from its viewers.
Many of them have taken to X - formerly known as Twitter - to share their reactions.
One user wrote: "This show crept into my life when I randomly pressed play for some background television, took a hold of my heart, promised me a gentle story of growth, change and finding your people, then speedily ripped out my heart.
"Some brilliant storytelling."
For one person, words didn't suffice, as they shared a gif of a man crying alongside the caption: "Bingewatched the entire series in one day and all I can say is..."
Another sobbing viewer tweeted: "I too have never read One Day or watched the film, so I went into the series not knowing what was coming. God, I am BROKEN."
A fellow fan in mourning commented: "Just finished One Day on Netflix...I'm gonna need some time to recover."
If these tweets are anything to go by, you should watch this series expecting to bawl - and maybe remove your makeup before pressing 'play'.
One Day is now available to stream on Netflix.
