While most of the cast will most likely be returning, it was recently reported that the Tapper family is officially no longer appearing on the show after unofficially leaving back in 2018.

The show returned for a one-off special in early January

Jonathan, 52, Nikki, 47, and their children Josh, 22, and Amy, 20, were part of the original line-up for the hit Channel 4 show when it first aired in 2013. According to The Daily Star, the Tappers have no plans to make a comeback but instead have other exciting projects in the pipeline this year.

The family-of-four were firm favourites on the Channel 4 show from the first series in 2013 until 2018, when it was announced that they were "taking a break" from on-screen duties as daughter Amy quit to find love on Celebs Go Dating.

Talking to The Mirror at the time, Amy said: "I'm personally not going back on Gogglebox. They can go on but they won't be with me," adding that she is "not really sure" if they'll be coming back.
