The regular version of Gogglebox came to an end recently, but before the show wrapped, many die-hard fans were left concerned that two favourites, Mica and Marcus, could be leaving.

The pair shared an image to their Instagram recently stating they had finished filming, leaving many to wonder if they were waving goodbye to the show.

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.
