The show features a number of families and groups of friends from different areas of the country, and they react to television programmes from their own homes. Last week’s episode included Harry and Meghan’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey and Piers Morgan’s GMB exit, but the families give their outspoken takes on all kinds of TV shows.

So, what do the Gogglebox cast members actually do for a living?

Giles and Mary joined Gogglebox in 2015 for the fifth series after being approached by a friend in the production team.

The quirky couple are well-known for their witty banter and dry sense of humour. 

But they also have successful careers outside the programme. 

After attending Wimbledon School of Art Giles became an acclaimed artist 

Meanwhile Mary is a journalist and currently works for the Spectator as their resident agony aunt.

She has since written books about the Queen and etiquette. 

The Siddiqui family from Derby have been on the show since it first started airing in 2013.
