We’re proud to sponsor Gogglebox on 4 can’t wait to get up close to the characters that make it a hit. Here's an intro to some of our faves.
Friday 26 February saw the return of the nation’s favourite telly watchers in series 17 of Gogglebox.
The show’s gone from strength to strength since the first series in 2013. And hit a record-breaking 6.5 million average viewers in 2020. With weekend nights out becoming a distant memory – it’s hardly surprising we all love the living room antics on a Friday night. They bring us closer together on our sofas as we enjoy a shared connection as a nation.
That’s why we’re proud to sponsor Gogglebox on 4 and can’t wait to get up close to the characters that make it such a hit. Here’s an intro to some of our fave Goggleboxers.
Ellie and Izzi – @ellieandizzi
Leeds-based Ellie Warner and sister Izzi joined the show back in 2015 and have become firm favourites. They’re known for their passion for food and adorable dogs; Mick and Madge and new additions Morris and Fudge.
What do they do in real-life? Ellie’s a hairdresser and Izzi is mum to 5-year-old Bobby and Bessie Rose who was born in February 2020.
Jenny and Lee – @leegogglebox
An iconic duo if ever there was one. Jenny and Lee have been best mates for over 20 years having met in the pub that Jenny used to run.
They don’t live together but isolated in Lee’s caravan during the pandemic so they could continue filming.
Fun fact: Jenny and Lee have the highest social media following of all the cast.
The Plummers @Goggleboxbros
The Plummers from Bristol are 3 brothers – Tremaine, Twaine, and Tristan and also known as the 3 Ts. They’ve been Goggleboxers since 2016 and are a huge hit with viewers.
Fun fact: They’re football mad. Hereford FC fans might recognise Tristan as a winger for the club. And Twaine plays for Bradford Town. While Tremaine is a chef.
The Malones @themalonesGB
The Malone family – Tom Sr, Julie, Shaun, and Tom Jr are based in Manchester. They’ve been part of the show since 2014 and are known for their hilarious one-liners and impressive TV snack selections. And their 4 rescue dogs, Dave, Izzy, Lucy, and Joe regularly steal the show with their antics.
Catch series 17 of Gogglebox on Channel 4 every Friday at 21:00.
