Where would we be if we couldn’t watch TV with the Gogglebox lot?

TAGS:

Gogglebox is back tonight. Can we get a: ‘YEEEESSSSSHHHHH’. Thanks.

It’s the TV show that really shouldn’t work – seriously, who’d want to watch a bunch of strangers sitting in their slippers talking about the telebox? UM, EVERYONE.

The Gogglebox cast have us in stitches every episode and we want the majority of the families to adopt us so we can sit around and slag TV off with them.

Now the Channel Four show has its own book out, filled with interviews and details about all the friends, families and partners, plus their best quotes.

Oh let’s take a gander about what they had to say about our favourite shows…  

DR WHO

RALF WOERDENWEBER: I don’t get my head around it. It makes no sense for me. What’s happening? I see a phone box flying around.

DOWNTON ABBEY

BAASIT SIDDIQUI: When were curtains invented? I don’t know when anything was invented, you know.

UMAR: I’d imagine they were invented after the window

BAASIT: I’m sure I just saw a chest of drawers from IKEA there.

MADE IN CHELSEA

JUNE: You never see a Chelsea Pensioner in Made In Chelsea, do you?

I’M A CELEBRITY, GET ME OUT OF HERE!

DOM: I’d actually love to go in the jungle, but I fundamentally wouldn’t eat any of that shit. I would just be sick. So, the long and the short of it is I’d end up doing all the tasks and everyone would drop dead as I’d refuse to eat any of that shit.

ONE BORN EVERY MINUTE

STEPHEN: I always thought women were the stronger sex. They have to put up with periods, having babies and the menopause…

CHRIS:… Men. They have to walk in stilettos. And that f*cking hurts.

SEX BOX

LOUIS MICHAELS: Shup up, Dad! ‘They should be married.’ ‘They can’t have sex out of wedlock.’ You are, literally, a thousand years old.

LIVE FROM SPACE

SANDRA: Every country in the whole world is in that ball?

SANDY: Except the stars. The blue bits are water. We’re in space, we’re looking down, why isn’t the water falling down for Earth?

SANDRA: Because it ain’t raining.

X FACTOR

LEON: Sneering prat.

JUNE: I’ve been trying to find out what all his talent is. All that money and well… how did he get it? What is his talent? What has he done? And why has he got a name like Simon Callow? Because I love Simon Callow.

Gogglebox, we love you. Welcome back.
