Amy Tapper, who appeared on the show with her parents and her old brother Josh, has confirmed that she won't be on another series as she will be starring in the new series of Celebs Go Dating.

Her brother, Josh, quit the show in 2017 after landing an apprenticeship at 10 Downing Street. At the time, he said: "The option to go back is always there but I want to move away from that and the focus is now very much on my job. Of course, I miss it and the sitting on the couch watching TV. But I am more focused on my future... it's a more a secure path." Scarlett Moffatt's parents previously revealed that they were dropped from the show after their daughter went on I'm a Celebrity, and at the time Scarlett tweeted: "We are going to miss doing #gogglebox so so much. But can't wait to watch the new series (good luck my fellow goggleboxers you will smash it love the Moffatts)." In response to a fan's message, Scarlett added: "We are gutted too, thought my Mam and dad (and little Ava) would still be able to do it but we will still be watching."
