'Did I miss something?' - Steph and Dom quit Gogglebox in shock exit
Published 18/10/2016 | 07:55
Gogglebox favourites Steph and Dom Parker have quit the show.
The current UK series kicked off on Channel 4 a few weeks ago. Some new faces have been added to the bill, alongside old favourites such as the Moffats, Jenny and Lee, the Siddiquis and the Micheals but fans of the show are disappointed that the Parkers haven't made an appearance yet.
On Monday, the B&B owners confirmed to the Sun newspaper that they have left the show.
"We think it’s important that everyone gets their chance to be on Gogglebox and give their opinion, and having been on it from the beginning we felt like we’d pretty much said all we needed to say, and we knew what we were going say," the said.
Er, where did Steph and Dom go? Did I miss something? #gogglebox— Caroline Newell (@CarolineNewell1) October 14, 2016
Steph added: "You can have too much of a good thing, so you can’t overdo it, we just felt it was time."
The pair, who attracted a following on the Channel 4 show for their tipsy commentary, confirmed that they are working on other projects so we might see them on TV screens in the near future. They also admitted that they're still big fans of the series that made them famous.
"We’ve got other projects and not a lot of time. We’re very busy and filming at the hotel was pretty tough," they explained.
Steph added: "I’m so touched that people have been missing us, because I think there are some incredibly funny characters on there so the fact we’re missed is quite a big deal for us.
"We do still watch it and we enjoy the new characters, it’s still making us belly laugh which is great."
