Gogglebox Season 12 TV Preview
Gogglebox continues to deliver that mix of reality TV and normal TV that’s unlike any other show. The concept of watching people watch the telly, whilst you do the same thing, appeared to be a rather bizarre concept at first, however, the format has become successful with Australian audiences.
From the happily married couple Lee and Keith to three generations of women in the Silbery family and everyone else in between, these households will deliver your favourite entertainment exactly how you want it. And if that’s not enough, you can expect to see three brand new households joining the Gogglebox family in the shape of Kaday and Chantel, Milo and Nic, and the Elias family.
Starring Anastasia and Faye, The Dalton Family, The Delpechitras and The Jacksons, the much anticipated Gogglebox Australia Season 12 has arrived in Australia and using the information in this guide you won’t have to miss a key moment.

Must see TV for Gogglebox Australia fans

Wentworth (Foxtel & Foxtel Now)

The Singapore Grip (Foxtel / BINGE)
This epic period drama is based in Singapore around the time of the Japanese invasion.

But with the entire world at war, there is little room for error. Catch all episodes of The Singapore Grip on BBC First and BINGE.
High Maintenance (Foxtel / BINGE)
The great thing about HBO‘s High Maintenance is that it does away with the conventional restrictions you would associates with a modern series. We don’t know the name of the main protagonist, and each new episode has an entirely new set of characters. What’s more, episodes are short and punchy at only 30 minutes, meaning you’re always kept of your toes as a viewer. Catch High Maintenance season 4 on Foxtel Now and BINGE.
