Storyline and cast
Gogglebox is a British reality documentary television series that follows ordinary Brits as they sit with their families and friends to watch British television shows. Produced by Studio Lambert, famed for such shows as Wife Swap, Faking It and Secret Millionaire, and executive produced by Tania Alexander, known for Seven Days, Girlfri3nds and Undercover Boss, the series first debuted on Channel 4 on March 7, 2013.
Every episode of Gogglebox features a recurring cast of Britain’s most avid, opinionated and sharp-tongued TV viewers as they watch and comment on the best and worst television shows of the week. The series is filmed in the viewers homes by two small HD remote-control cameras and operated by a small team set up in the production control room in another part of the house. Throughout its five seasons, Gogglebox has been nominated for a number of awards. In 2014 it won the coveted BAFTA award in the “Reality & Constructed Actual Programme” category, the Broadcasting Press Guild award and swept up the 2015 National Television award.
Current season, spin-offs and renewal prospects
Series 7 of Gogglebox premiered on February 19, 2016, with viewership numbers that are the highest in the history of the show. The premiere delivered a record number of 4.98 million viewers, and the second episode was seen live by an audience of 4.09 million. This season the Gilbey family is making a comeback to the show after their removal following George`s appearance on Celebrity Big Brother in 2014. For those of you who are great fans of the GIlbeys – George has revealed a piece of exciting news about himself – he`s about to become a dad!
A runaway hit in the U.K., the series has spun off American and Canadian versions that have aired on Bravo and Bravo Canada respectively. A junior version of the show, Gogglesprogs, has debuted as a special on Christmas Day in 2015, was very warmly received and will be followed by a full-length series later on in 2016. So will U.K. audiences see a series 8 of Gogglebox? There have been no formal plans made thus far, but there`s perfect reason to believe that it will continue its triumphant broadcast.
