Gogglebox is getting a celebrity make over in this new series from the UK. Viewers are invited into the living rooms of some well known faces from the past and present, from actors and singers to comedians and sportspeople, as they give their opinion on some of the most popular TV moments from the past 12 months.
Celebrity Gogglebox UK Season 1 TV Preview
Gogglebox Australia may be the more well established version of this show on Aussie shores, but the concept itself was born in the UK. This Celebrity edition was first broadcast in the United Kingdom in 2019 and is now making its way down under.
The show was originally created as a spin off for the charity ‘stand up to cancer’. It became such a success with audiences that the creators decided to put together a whole series, hand picking some of the more extroverted and opinionated characters from the depths of UK celebrity.
Starring Martin Kemp (Spandau Ballet), Sheila Hancock (New Tricks), Chris Eubank (Former Champion Boxer), and Denis Van Outen (Neighbours), this much anticipated series has arrived in Australia, and using the options listed in this TV guide you won’t have to miss a key moment.
