Meanwhile, Gogglebox recently disappointed many fans after it was revealed that the show wouldn't be back on our screens for a new series until the middle of next month - and one beloved family reportedly won't be returning for the new episodes.

According to a report in The Daily Star, the London-based Tapper family won't be back to give their verdict on the best of recent British TV. The report revealed that the Tappers have no plans to make a comeback but instead have other exciting projects in the pipeline this year.

 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 and unofficially left the show in 2018.
