Meet the new household on Gogglebox

Gogglebox, the TV show about people watching TV shows, will be back on our screens soon, but one of the regular households on the show will no longer be appearing.

High school acquaintances and housemates Zina and Vivian will not be returning for the new season. Vivian has recently moved overseas and Zina is embarking on new adventures of her own.

In their place will engaged couple Matty and Sarah Marie and their friend Jad who have big personalities, a shared love of food and are excited to bring some “Middle-Eastern flavour” to Gogglebox Australia.

Sarah Marie is described as your down-to-earth ‘girl next door’ and owner of a makeup and hair agency, entrepreneur and café owner Jad is the larrikin of the group, and Marketing and Communications Director Matty is the responsible one, having the final call on most things, including what’s on the box.

Matty and Jad have been friends for over 10 years, first meeting through the Sydney club scene where they both worked in their early twenties. Matty started dating Sarah Marie four years ago and the trio have formed a close friendship; Jad is like Matty and Sarah Marie’s younger, immature brother.

Although having differing tastes in television – Matty lives and breathes sports, Sarah Marie loves her cartoons, and Jad is a fan of cooking shows – the three love sitting down to watch a movie together, so long as there is food involved.

The series return to our screens on Wednesday, 4 October, at 7.30pm on Foxtel’s Lifestyle channel and streaming on Foxtel Now, and will also be broadcast the following day at 8.30pm on TEN and WIN Network.
