George reveals he’s 'ecstatic' to be expecting a little one - and he's also coming back to Gogglebox!

Gogglebox viewers, we have exciting news – one of its stars has got a baby on the way!

Yep, George Gilbey has confirmed that he’s going to be a dad as he’s expecting his first child with girlfriend Gemma this summer. Congrats, guys!


The TV star is pretty happy about the news too.

‘I’m ecstatic,’ he reveals. ‘I am so, so excited.’

Awww. George has also revealed the gender of his tot and it’s a – wait for it – girl!

‘We had the 20 week scan the other day and it felt so real,’ he explains. ‘It was amazing when we found out we were having a girl.’

How cute is that? It’s great to see that George – who shot to fame when he and the Gilbey clan became part of the Gogglebox cast – has found love with girlfriend Gemma.

The Essex-born star has been with his lady for nine months and is thrilled to have settled down after struggling to find a real relationship following his stint on Celebrity Big Brother in 2014.

‘We met at Ascot,’ George says of Gemma.

‘I met a lot of superficial girls when I came out of the CBB house. It was terrible. But Gemma was so genuine.’

George was linked to Stephanie Pratt and Edele Lynch during his time on CBB but nothing came of those romances.

Now he’s not only loved-up with Gemma and expecting a baby but he’s also got even MORE good news – he’s heading back to Gogglebox!

Despite having to leave the show so that he could do CBB, the telly star is returning to the sofa with mum Linda and stepdad Pete when the show comes back on air this Friday.

So with his daughter due to arrive in June and a starring role on the box again, it’s fair to say it’s going to be a big few months for George!

‘I know it’s going to totally change my life and I can’t wait,’ he tells Heat. ‘It’s going to be amazing.

‘Can you believe it? I’m going back on Gogglebox and I’m going to be a dad!’

Congrats, George and Gemma!
