Gogglebox first landed on screens across the country in March 2013 and has since spawned 20 series and several spin-offs and celebrity specials.
Now he’s set to return shortly for a 21st series, leaving devoted fans over the moon.
The original show followed ordinary families from across the UK as they reacted to the past week’s TV highlights from the comfort of their own sofas.
The offbeat show’s formula proved to be a hit with viewers and several of the show’s early stars have launched significant television careers.
But others have stepped away from the spotlight to pursue different passions. Ten years later, this is what the original cast is up to now:
The Tappers were one of the show’s early staples, appearing on Gogglebox from its incarnation in 2013 until the last member of the family left in 2018.
Brother Josh left first after gaining an apprenticeship with the UK government and has since carved out a career in politics.
He is even set to run as Labor’s candidate for Chipping Barnet, which is currently held by Conservative MP Theresa Villiers.
Sister Amy left to join the cast of the E4 reality show Celebs Go Dating and has since become a full-time influencer.
Dad Jonathan and mom Nikki kept their day jobs as a driver and daycare assistant, respectively, and have since returned to full-time work.
However, Jonathan made headlines during the coronavirus pandemic when he was left fighting for his life on a ventilator after contracting the virus.
He eventually recovered and showed an incredible three stone weight loss in 2022 which he said was brought on by his health issue.
Stephen Webb and Chris Ashby-Steed
Stephen and Chris, both hairstylists, joined the show as a couple for its first series in 2013 and quickly became fan favorites.
Chris left the show in 2018 when he and Stephen parted ways and later revealed that it had been a bitter departure.
Chris claimed in 2022 that he had felt “harassed” off the show.
She has since moved to Wales with her new husband Tony, while her ex Stephen now appears on Gogglebox alongside her new love Daniel Lustig.
The Moffatts were almost original cast members after joining the show for its third season in 2014.
The family consisted of mother Betty, father Mark, and daughter Scarlett, then in her early twenties.
Scarlett starred in and won I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! In 2016, which led to her hosting the spin-off I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp over the next two years.
The now 32-year-old has done a fair amount of television work, including appearances on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, after her stint on Gogglebox and has published three books.
In 2019, the family reunited for The British Tribe Next Door, which saw them move to a tribal village in Namibia.
In 2023, Scarlett announced that she was expecting her first child with her police boyfriend Scott Dobinson.
june and leon bernicoff
June and Leon were one of the original Gogglebox cast members and would often enjoy a cup of tea or snack while binging on the week’s television.
The couple won fans over with warmth and a willingness to laugh, which meant viewers were devastated when Leon passed away just before Christmas 2017.
He still starred on the show and reportedly suffered from health problems in the weeks leading up to his death.
June left the show after his death, also tragically passing just three years after her husband in June 2020.
Sandi Bogle and Sandra Martin
Best friends Sandi and Sandra joined the show for its first series in 2013.
Sandi decided to step down in 2016 after being offered the chance to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house alongside stars like fellow reality star Sam Thompson and American YouTuber Trisha Paytas.
Sandi became the seventh star to leave the show and has done other television work including Celebrity Fat Fighters.
Sandra stayed at Gogglebox until 2017, and her daughter replaced her best friend, but she decided to leave to pursue other work.
Since then she has appeared on First Dates and Loose Women.
steph and dom parker
Married couple Dom and Steph stood out from the rest of the cast and were quickly dubbed as the “stylish” couple of the show.
They appeared on the show from 2013 to 2016 to pursue other television opportunities and focus on managing the hotel they owned.
In 2017, Dom participated in both Celebrity Masterchef and the ski jumping reality show The Jump.
The couple reunited for Channel 4’s The Hunted and co-published a book they called their “Guide to Life.”
They even hosted a show on TalkRadio together between 2018 and 2019.
Rev Kate and Graham Bottley
The Reverend Kate Bottley, her husband Graham, joined the show in 2014 and quickly became widely recognized for her dedication to tea drinking.
The couple only appeared in four series of the show at the end before calling it quits.
Kate continues to work as a reverend and has also kept her television job.
She has appeared on shows including Celebrity Masterchef and 8 Out Of 10 Cats, but her husband Graham has kept a low profile since Gogglebox.
The Anglo-German family, the Woerdenwebers, consisted of German-born Ralf, his English wife Viv, and their heavily tattooed daughter Eve.
During her early appearances, Eve was often joined by her silent boyfriend Jay, who never contributed to commentary.
However, Eve and Jay broke up and he left the show.
Eve has since gotten engaged to her boyfriend Alex and is still very active on social media, where she regularly posts gaming content.
Eve also runs a tattoo studio, Pretty Inked, and has been promoting a fundraiser for her mother Viv, who is currently trying to finance her master’s degree in archaeology.
Viv had previously returned to education and recently completed a three-year bachelor’s degree.
Ralf has returned to his day job at Bosch, a manufacturer of household appliances.
