Foxtel and Network Ten today announced that two new households will be joining the hit local production, Gogglebox Australia, when season 3 premieres on Foxtel’s The LifeStyle Channel on Wednesday, April 6, at 7.30pm, and on TEN on Thursday, April 7, at 8.30pm.
The three generations of women in the The Silbery Family, bring a wealth of life-experiences, personality and opinion every time they sit down to watch the telly together. Great Grandma, Emily “Emmie”, models herself on Judi Dench but is young-at-heart and likes to keep the other ladies of the house on their toes. Mum, Kerry, has a straight-talking no-nonsense attitude to life and is thriving as a middle aged single. Daughter, Isabelle, is a stay-at-home mum who loves politics and current affair but there’s no denying that reality TV is her guilty pleasure. These three women are close and relish each other’s company, but it won’t stop them from playfully pushing each other’s buttons, more often than not.
Housemates, Zina & Vivian (seen in the featured image above), are old high school acquaintances who have lived together for almost three years. With hectic professional and social lives, these self-proclaimed “reality TV addicts” enjoy nothing more than relaxing in front of the TV together at the end of the day. They have love-hate relationship with shows like The Real Housewives of Melbourne and The Bachelor Australia and love putting their own “judges” hats on for shows like MasterChef Australia, My Kitchen Rules and The Voice. With big personalities and strong opinions, these two are sure to spark some interesting conversations.
Returning to Gogglebox this season will be: vivacious friends and housemates, Angie & Yvie; best mates and larrikins with a thirst for life, Adam & Symon; bubbly Greek best friends, Anastasia & Faye; newly-engaged cocktail-loving, Wayne & Tom; the sports-crazy Jackson Family; the fun-loving and cricket-mad, Delpechitra Family; the indigenous art dealers, Mick & Di; the close-knit, Dalton Family and the happily married for over 30 years couple, Lee & Keith. The Kidd Family has decided to watch less TV this year, and will not be returning to Gogglebox from their lounge room.
Gogglebox Australia is an Endemol Shine Australia production for Foxtel and Network Ten.
