Gogglebox Spin-Off with Kids Gets Full Series for 2016

Gogglebox has become one of Channel 4's most successful shows in recent years, as it rakes in the viewers and has even landed itself a BAFTA. Who would have thought a show that basically consists of watching people watch TV could be so entertaining?

The series has now decided to run a spin-off as they hand things over to the kids in what will be called Gogglesprogs. Initially just supposed to be a Christmas Special, the show has now landed its very own six-part series.

Executive producer Freya Sampson promises the show will keep "the charm of the original Gogglebox series".

“There is something special about watching these children give their very different opinions in an utterly honest and ultimately hilarious way," she said. "The special is funny, heart-warming, and has the charm of the original Gogglebox series but the way the children interact gives it a different perspective which finds you both laughing and crying."


Sampson added, "We’re delighted that Channel 4 has loved them all as much as we have and we can continue to bring their inimitable take on the world of TV to viewers in the series for 2016.”

Gogglesprogs will air on Channel 4 at 8pm on Christmas Day while the series will follow in the New Year. Will you tune in?
