PICS: Meet the first ‘couple’ from the brand new series of Gogglebox Ireland

“He considers her his second Mammy.” Awww.

Gogglebox Ireland returns to our screens on Wednesday night and after letting us know the counties where the stars of the show are from earlier this week, we now know the identity of the first couple.

On Wednesday night, Irish audiences will be introduced to 16-year old Tadgh and his Granny Ettie from Clonlara in County Clare.

Tadgh visits Granny Ettie every single day and stays overnight as often as he can; the pair of them are so close Tadgh considers her his second Mammy. Bless.

When they’re not watching TV together – Ettie likes The Chase, Antiques Roadshow and WW2 documentaries while Tadgh is more of a Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead man – they’re travel buddies, having visited Boston and Lake Garda together and having spent a month visiting Ettie’s son in Australia last summer.

On the first show of the new series, they’ll be watching a bit of Celebrity Big Brother together; as a fan of Tom Hanks and Sean Connery, Jedward might not be Ettie’s cup of tea.

The first episode of the new series of Gogglebox Ireland airs on TV3 on Wednesday night at 9pm.
