What characters will we meet this season?

The first season of Gogglebox Ireland introduced us to the Cavan Twins, the Cabra Girls and the Castleknock Legends, among other intriguing households.

So it's safe to say season two will throw some fantastic new characters in the mix.

TV3 has confirmed that five new households will join the show.

The homes will be in Cork, Portlaoise, Clare, Mayo and Wicklow and are set to be revealed over the coming weeks.

The new recruits were selected after an exhaustive search that kicked off with over three thousand applications.

Simon Proctor, Series Producer of Gogglebox Ireland said: "We're thrilled to welcome our five new households to join our expanded Gogglebox Ireland family!

"Representing a great geographical and social mix, our new Goggleboxers will bring us even more unique insights into the week's telly along with many of our original cast - they let us into their homes, switch on their kettles and pick up their remote controls".

Series two of Gogglebox Ireland kicks off on Wednesday, February 8.
