Two original Gogglebox duos are confirmed to depart the show.
Wayne & Tom and Angie & Yvie will not return in 2019.
It follows Tom Walsh announcing on JOY94.9 in October, “I’ve had a lot of fun. And I think it’s just time. Me and Wayne are ready to retire. We’re ready to buy a farm and go bush.”
It wasn’t the first time the pair had indicated their desire to leave.
Executive Producer David McDonald recently told TV Tonight, “When the cast get to the end of a series, the last thing they want to talk about is the next one. Which I totally understand.
“We may re-cast, yes. A refresh is good, it brings a different perspective. When people move on I do miss their voice in the mix sometimes, but life takes people in other directions. It is a big commitment and we really appreciate what they give to make the show.”
