TV3 will introduce another new household in tomorrow night's episode, The Gibbons-Coyle family.

Hailing from Moycullen in Galway, the family consists of mam Eileen, dad Chris and daughters Hannah and Ciara. The family describe themselves as "very dramatic, energetic, honest, liberal and they love to laugh".

So what TV shows get the family talking?

They admit to being big fans of comedies such as Friends, Modern Family and reality TV shows such as I'm A Celebrity and 24 Hours in A&E.

Dad Chris, however, has a guilty pleasure: Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

When they're not watching TV, Hannah is busy with her teaching job in the same primary school she attended herself. Ciara, who works in Supermacs, has just finished her Undergrad in Philosophy and Psychology in NUI Galway and is hoping to progress to an MA in Psychology.

Dad Chris works for the Department of Defence. He’s an expert on Irish celebrities, shocking his female counterparts with his knowledge. And mum Eileen teaches drama at the Blue Teapot Theatre Company and also dabbles in playwriting.

They also have an adorable collie dog who we'll hopefully get acquainted with in tomorrow night's episode.
