I agree. I still like some of the families and get a few laughs out of it but it just feels very scripted these days, they're very aware of the cameras and it seems like some are playing up to it in the hopes of getting some follow up work like Scarlett Moffat. Pete and Sophie always seem to be doing something "zany".

English version is brilliant.
Lee and Jenny from Hull always have something scripted every week. They are quite annoying but the other families are all really good.

this is the gogglebox ireland thread not uk vs ireland
some like one and not the other some like them all, in my opinion they all have funny moments and that is why we watch them

Watched all the Irish and UK episodes - tried the first episode of the Oz version - found it hard going - us it worth persevering?

Not sure if it's 'zany' but it's damn annoying.
Strange brother/ sister relationship.

Have to say that I really enjoy them, great chemistry between them.
He gets up my nose in particular, tries way too hard.
Can't stand Stephen in Brighton either - regardless of who's on the couch with him (old partner, his mammy, new partner), it's all about him. Might as well have a cardboard cut out on the couch.

Repeat, Best Bits?

I can't stand the 'best bits' episodes tbh, if I've seen it once that's enough. When is it back proper?

Judging by previous years - around 10 new episodes from September to November, then 2 specials in January/Feb along with Best Bits.
Still surprised that they don't show more. The UK version had 30 weeks of it last year (with 7 more in Celeb version)
Oh, I thought it was coming back sometime soon, the UK one returns next week - pity

Gogglebox Ireland returns next Wednesday September 1st per ad on during coronation street tonight
New couple on Gogglebox Danny and Oxana.
Georgina Grufferty will also be joining.
Andy Micheal from UK Gogglebox had died ..RIP .
Wow, only 61. After a "short illness", I wonder if that is covid. Mary Cook died a few days ago also at the grand old age of 92.
Quite a few UK Gogglebox stars have died now. June and Leon died a few years back, and I also found out today that George Gilbey's father died last year.
Ahh no..RIP Andy and Mary. I've been watching this a lot on Netflix over the last few weeks..
Tadgh and his granny back, he looks slimmer and taller
Fergal and Neal from Cavan are on social media saying they decided to take a break from this series and won't appear.
That is a shame, the twins will be missed
Dancing with the Stars for one or both maybe
Thank god they're boring as hell, hopefully someone decent replaces them.
As less rude hopefully ! I always found him very aserbic and rude to his granny .
The tweet doesn't say it was their own choice.
They could well have been dropped.
