“Not everyone leaves a television show with grace and dignity”

Foxtel has thanked Adam Densten & Symon Lovett for their participation in Gogglebox, after the duo announced their departure at 10 seasons.

Speaking on their podcast Symon said, “So we made this decision a couple months ago that we were going to leave so we could do other stuff, pursue other exciting opportunities.”

“It’s been five years and 10 seasons, it’s a nice round number,” Adam added.

The pair also indicated further interest in media opportunities.

“We hope the show will keep growing and getting better, but it’s the right time for us to go,” Adam said.

“Hopefully, this isn’t the end for us. Hopefully, there’s some stuff in the future … radio, TV, where we’ll still be in your ears and in front of your eyes. That’s the aim.”

Interestingly Foxtel’s Brian Walsh made a rare Instagram comment to thank the boys, which contrasts to his feelings around Angie Kent & Yvie Jones discussing salaries when they departed.

“You have given the show countless hours of entertainment. All of the team here at Foxtel are grateful for your involvement in the series and we wish you only the best for the future. Not everyone leaves a television show with grace and dignity, but you both have done so, which speaks volume about your integrity and professionalism.”

Gogglebox is currently casting for new households.

  1. Kind of a backhanded compliment, when you’re also lambasting someone else, but interesting non the less. I wonder if he includes that gay couple as not leaving gracefully too. If I remember correctly they had some snide comments on departure.

  2. I agree Angie and Yvie could have left more gracefully. I doubt we’ll be seeing much more of them in an already overcrowded pool of talent. Radio is just as fickle, if not more so than TV, so short term success there is no guarantee of a future.
