  Kissing under the mistletoe is set to go the same way as every other festive interaction this Christmas - unless the apple of your eye is in your bubble of course. So we thought we'd add some cheer to the loveless 2020 festive season with a reminder of the story behind the Dirty Stop Outs. It's an amazing tale of the re-discovery of a long-forgotten photo that sparked love second time around and far more besides.
