I love gogglebox, for those that watch it. Who are your favs? For me it’s Dave &Shirley, The malones especially Dave the Rottie, and Izzy &Ellie . Not a fan of Sophie & Pete or the Nutties

The Siddiqui family are my favourites by far, especially the father. I like Dave and Shirley too, the three black brothers, Maria and Mary and Lee and Jenny. Pete is quite witty sometimes but Sophie’s laugh gets on my nerves. Mr Malone swears way too much but I love the family’s dogs, especially Dave. I have watched it for a few years now but I’m not keen on the celebrity versions.

I tried it once because friends said it was good.

Giles and Mary, Jenny and Lee, oh I like them all and miss it, due back February apparently. Not fussed about the celebrity ones.

Whenever I watch it I enjoy it. It makes me chuckle. Himself can’t stand it. I always mean to look out for it but rarely remember!

I love it but DH doesn't really get it. He tends to focus more on the programmes they are watching than the Goggleboxers themselves.

Jenny and Lee are my favourites.

Jenny and Lee! I thought they were brother and sister living together but there is a Mr Jenny! Also Giles and Mary and Dave and Shirley. Some of them talk too much.

Like the siddiquis, like Giles and Mary, Jenny and Lee but cannot bear the brother and sister, I have to mute it when they appear.

EllanVannin Sun 31-Jan-21 21:50:39

Now and again if I remember. I like Jenny and Lee they're so full of fun.

I enjoy it and ‘im indoors’ pretends he doesn’t but can always be found hovering around the sofa at 9pm on a Friday- then remains until Gogglebox has finished. No real favourites but do laugh at/with Jenny and Lee, and the ‘Nuttys’!

It’s easier for me to say who I don’t like. I hated the young girl with the straight long blonde hair that sat with her family (Essex?) and was really foul mouthed. I don’t like the new husband of the Brighton hairdresser. He’s irritatingly soft! I liked his very first companion. What happened to him?

Lilypops Sun 31-Jan-21 23:52:39

I cannot stand the brother and sister , he is not funny, he thinks he is , and his little sister Sophie” laughs hysterically at everything he says , I love the friends Mary and Marina, Jenny and her friend Lee , don’t like the hairdresser and his husband , not funny anymore.
I miss Leon and June very much. Lovely couple. “show us your Knicks June”

I love gogglebox it’s my favourite programme especially through the pandemic sometimes you don’t want to watch stuff that was made before the lockdowns it does seem relevant. We live the Siddiquis , Giles and Mary , Mary and marina , Jenny and Lee the hairdressers and the Welsh couple have a lovely relationship don’t they ? I suppose that’s why we like it because you can see how well they all get on .

Grannynannywanny Mon 01-Feb-21 00:12:25

I really enjoy it. I don’t particularly dislike any of them but my favourites are Mary and Marina, The Sidiquis and Giles and Mary.

I remember a few years ago when I first read about it I thought it sounded like a daft idea for a programme. Who wants to watch someone else watching tv??

I came across it while channel hopping one night and I was hooked.

I still watch it, but I'm going off it because it seems so scripted these days. It drives me mad when they all narrate whatever they're watching 'He's going to go in now!' 'She used to be married to him but ran off with his brother' 'Oh no! He's stolen the gun!' and so on.

I can't believe that none of them have seen some of the most famous films ever, and it's obvious that they are feigning surprise at times. I preferred it when it seemed like we were actually watching them watching TV, not following a script.

I like the Siddiquis and Jenny and Lee the best, although there are others I enjoy seeing too (and yes, RIP Leon and June).

The Siddiquis, Giles and Mary, and Jenny and Lee are my favourites. I tend to blitz watch a few programmes On Demand.

😱 ... a Mr Jenny.
I thought there was a Mr Lee and assumed Jenny to be single!

Favourites - the Siddiqui family

There are a few I don't really like or find dull. I could do without the couple with the fabulous sideboard, Mary and Marina, the mum and daughter and the hairdresser and his husband. It's good that they rotate a bit so I still really enjoy this show though it seemed a silly idea at first!

Redhead56 Mon 01-Feb-21 09:59:54

Lee and Jenny and the Siddiquis the hairdresser and partner. These are my favourites. Celebrity Gogglebox Rylan and his mum are hilarious.

TrendyNannie6 Mon 01-Feb-21 10:06:00

Yes, Rylan and his mum Linda should be given their own show, she’s so funny, the fact is she doesn’t realise just how funny she is makes it hilarious ( celebrity Gogglebox)
