Gogglebox favourites announce they’re leaving the show
Gogglebox fans will be disappointed to hear that originals Steph and Dom are taking a break from the show, after telling fans: “You can have too much of a good thing.”
Stephanie and Dominic Parker have captured the hearts of the British public ever since their appearance on the first ever series of Gogglebox. The boozy pair have delivered some of the best one-liners on the show, never failing to say exactly what is on their mind.
And don’t get us started on Steph’s hilarious facial expressions:
Sadly, the couple’s days have come to an end on the Channel 4 programme as they confirmed their official departure this week.
Speaking to the Sun Online, the guesthouse owners explained: “We think it’s important that everyone gets their chance to be on Gogglebox and give their opinion, and having been on it from the beginning we felt like we’d pretty much said all we needed to say, and we knew what we were going say.”
Steph added: “We’ve decided to take a break from it.”
“You can have too much of a good thing, so you can’t overdo it, we just felt it was time.”
Describing how balancing their own ventures with filming was becoming too hectic, Steph said: “We’ve got other projects and not a lot of time. We’re very busy and filming at the hotel was pretty tough.”
The much-loved pair seemed to mysteriously disappear from the show this series, much to the dismay of fans watching. A flattered Steph said: “I’m so touched that people have been missing us, because I think there are some incredibly funny characters on there so the fact we’re missed is quite a big deal for us.
“We do still watch it and we enjoy the new characters, it’s still making us belly laugh which is great.”
The couple also refused to give anything away in regards to rumours about their own chat show.
Dom said: “Who knows, who thought we’d be doing any of this in the first place?
“You can never guess what’s around the corner, so who knows… Everything is very topsy turvy in the TV land, but we’d absolutely be delighted.”
We hope that the tipsy twosome will return to their Gogglebox sofa one day, but until then we wish them the very best in their own TV endeavours!
Gogglebox continues Friday at 9pm on Channel 4.
