Before the digital era, the classic excuses of yesteryear – such as “a big boy did it then ran away” or “my dog ate it” – used to get us out of all sorts of sticky situations.

But these charming antiquities will get you nowhere when your mates are Whatsapping you about rugby practice and you’re struggling to pry your eyes away from Say Yes to the Dress. (Unless your dog is a 7-foot-tall monster hound who can put away a whole set-top box – but hey, if that’s the case you can get away with anything you feel like.)

So what do you say if it’s cold outside and you can’t tear yourself from that warm and fuzzy Parks and Rec feeling? How do you shake taking the bins out when you’re just flat-out glued to Vanderpump Rules? 

Fellow binge watchers: we need to know (okay, steal) your excuses.

In exchange, we’re giving away 5 voucher codes for a whole year of TV Player, the amazing service that lets you watch 95 channels of thrilling, barmy and addictive telly on your phone. Pair it with Go Binge, and you could stay connected to all your favourite shows no matter where you are – with no damage done to your data allowance.

You can download TV Player for iPhone and TV Player for Android.
