Why did the McCormick family join Gogglebox?

There's actually a very important and touching reason that the family decided to join the popular Channel 4 show. Back in 2015, teenager Issac developed Tourette syndrome - a condition which causes involuntary movements and sounds, also known as tics. After being approached to appear on the show, Georgia admitted she and husband Scott left the decision solely down to Issac.

"It was literally up to Isaac whether or not we would do the show," she previously told What's On TV magazine. "It’s putting him out there with his condition and we wanted to know he'd be comfortable with that. Me and Scott took a back seat and let Isaac have a good think about it." Scott McCormick suffers from a neurological condition Dad Scott was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) 13 years ago. It is a condition that can affect the brain and spinal cord, causing a wide range of potential symptoms, including problems with vision, arm or leg movement, sensation or balance.

What are the McCormick family day jobs? It may not come as a surprise that Georgia is a hairdressing tutor, she has been through multiple hair colours since her start on the show. But dad Scott is an aeronautical engineer and actually spent 22 years in the RAF.
