The Gogglebox families have become hugely popular over years, so it's no wonder that many were left concerned that one couple, Marcus and Mica, were set to depart the show recently.

The pair, who are fan-favourites on the Channel 4 programme, shared an image to their Instagram recently stating they had finished filming, leaving many to wonder if they were waving goodbye to Gogglebox.

Marcus' caption read: "Big up our @c4gogglebox crew for looking after us during series 17. A big appreciation for putting up with @realmandyvee as I know it can be hard watching her pick on me at times even though I do nothing to provoke her."

One person replied underneath: "Please, please say that you will be returning for series 18 of @c4gogglebox? You are both my favourite couple on the show, you both make me smile and laugh."

Another asked: "Does this mean you won't be on the next series of gogglebox?" as a third commented: "Nooooo you guys can't be leaving?!"

However, fear not, as Marcus was quick to assure fans that they're not leaving – but had simply finished filming for the current series. "No not leaving just finished this series," he confirmed to his followers. Phew!
