Gogglebox Ireland is looking for new TV fanatics for their new season

Gogglebox Ireland

If you or someone you know think you would be perfect for this, now is your chance to prove it.

Gogglebox Ireland has been around since 2016, and has proved to be as popular – if not even more popular – with Irish viewers than the UK version that landed three years earlier.

Since then, we’ve had six seasons of the show, as well as a special celebrity edition which brought in Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson and John Lithgow for a star-packed couch!

As they plough ahead with a new season, Virgin Media Television is looking for new TV fanatics to join the show’s line-up ahead of the launch of the new episodes this autumn.

Gogglebox Ireland is looking for TV fanatics for their new season.

The channel told us:

“In a show where you sit and watch the TV, with other people sitting and watching TV, there has never been a show that had as many viewers thinking to themselves: ‘I could do that…’

“Well, if you reckon you could be as entertaining to watch on telly talking about different programmes, then you’ll be happy to hear, we are looking for new households to take part! We are on the lookout for groups of older life-long friends who love nothing more than chatting about what they watch on the box.

“We’re also interested to hear from couples who are news lovers, as well as families. Despite them proving to be a lesser-spotted breed for Gogglebox Ireland, we’d still love to hear from telly-addicted members of the clergy!

“We want to hear from everyone across the country who have plenty to say about the world of television and want to join us in having a laugh. So if you are just as gripped by the First Dates as you are by The Sunday Game, and you know your Daniel O’Connell from your Daniel O’Donnell, why not apply?”

If you are interested or know of someone who might be perfect, email [email protected] with your contact details and with details of who is in your TV-watching gang, where in Ireland you’re based, what you like to watch together and a photo of you all together if possible.

Applications will remain open until mid-August.
