After months of waiting, the adaptation of Dolly Alderton's Everything I Know About Love finally dropped in full on BBC iPlayer, and everyone is saying the same thing.

You could barely look at your newsfeeds during the summer of 2018 without the cover of Dolly's much-loved memoir cropping up, which is why it made so much sense for the story to be picked up for TV.

As oppose to a straight-forward dramatisation, the BBC's Everything I Know About Love introduces new characters Birdy (played by Bel Powley) and Maggie (Emma Appleton), alongside housemates Nell and Amara (Marli Siu and Aliyah Odoffin), fictional characters based on Alderton’s friends.

The four friends are muddling their way through their early 20s, pulling all-nighters and working dead end jobs, when Birdy gets a boyfriend, and the dynamic with childhood BFF Maggie is thrown into disarray.

Unsurprisingly, viewers have been loving the series, and have all been taking to social media to say the same thing.

As one person put it, "Watched the first two episodes of #EverythingIKnowAboutLove tonight and I'm already in love. I can tell this show will have a special part of my heart the way the book does."

Another said, " I ADORED this" while another fan put, "Honestly, one of the best things I’ve watched in ages. Every single cast member shone. Especially the 4 leads. Incredible. Well done @dollyalderton."

Well, we know what we'll be watching tonight.

Everything I Know About Love is now streaming on BBC One and iPlayer.
