Celebrity Gogglebox to screen with returning season in 2022
Move over Anastasia & co..... a few celebs are ready to even the score when they take to the couch in 2022.
EXCLUSIVE: Celebrity Gogglebox will screen in 2022 attached to the returning new season on Foxtel and 10.
It will screen concurrently with the returning series, in order to keep production costs down.
Foxtel is currently casting with producers Endemol Shine Australia and Network 10.
“We had a very robust discussion on that this week,” Foxtel Executive Director of Television Brian Walsh told TV Tonight.
“It’s all about getting the chemistry right. It’s easy to go and pick names for the sake of names. Whether they’re going to give you the kind of television that you want, is another matter.”
Previously rumoured names included Anthony Callea and Tim Campbell, but Walsh reveals he also sees a place for fashion designer Alex Perry, whom he bumped into last week.
“I said, ‘ Your name came up this week in a meeting that we had on Celebrity Gogglebox and I said that I thought you’d be terrific… you’ve got such a sharp tongue, and you don’t hold back!’ And he said, ‘I’m in! I want to give it back to that bloody Anastasia, she’s always having a swing at me! Let me at it!'” he laughed.
“I’ve sent an email to Shine this morning to say ‘Alex Perry is definitely in.’ It’s just a matter of who we pair him with.
“We just want it to be fun. They’ve got to be authentic celebrities,” said Walsh.
“But that will that get cast this side of Christmas and Celebrity Gogglebox will be attached to the first season for 2022.”
