The return date for Gogglebox has been confirmed by Channel 4, with the new series of the reality show set to air later this month.
For the past eight years, Gogglebox has delighted people across the nation by welcoming viewers into the homes of real families as they react hilariously to the latest big TV moments.
At the moment, the weekly Friday night 9pm slot on Channel 4 is taken by Russell T Davies critically-acclaimed TV series It’s A Sin, which follows the story of a group of young gay friends in London at the time of the Aids crisis in the 1980s.
However, once the final episode of the programme airs, the slot will be taken by Gogglebox.
So when is it returning to our screens?
