    Hi Richard
    I’ve found internet reference to a climber/rambling rose with the same name as the hybrid tea rose - are you looking for the shrub or climber, or does it not matter?
    There’s a thread on a Gardeners Corner forum where someone in South Essex is also trying to track this plant down and there have been a couple of responses this year when someone reported buying Rosa Virgo at Home Bargains at the unbelievable price of 99p (January 2017), then another purchased for £1 in Poundworld (April 2017)! You’d best go bargain hunting I think! I don’t know whether they were shrubs or climbers.
    As it’s probably the name which is important to you, this may not apply but there is also rose "Iceberg" which is three quarters Virgo and one quarter Robin Hood (parents)and is said to be almost identical to Virgo.
    There’s also the zodiac theme you could link Virgo to if you’re struggling with the rose:
    Plants said to be suited to Virgo are: monkshood (aconitum), hypericum (St John's wort), chrysanthemum, eucalyptus, veronica, violet, ivy, thistle flowers.
    Let us know how you get on, what you decide and whether you have any success.
    Best wishes
