Three new lads from Louth joined the Gogglebox Ireland cast last night and they made quite an impression.

The new series kicked off with Michael (25), David (24) and Gerry (25) who have been friends since childhood and all live within five minutes of each other in Cooley Peninsula in Louth.

Michael is a sales rep and David is a software expert while Gerry is a personal trainer and they went down a storm with viewers, particularly Gerry.

Several took to Twitter to query his relationship status (scroll down for the commentary).

The three friends, who love socialising and GAA, make time for a weekly lads night to catch up on the telly in Gerry's parents' house.

They rarely agree on what to watch on TV but all enjoy First Dates and The Simpsons.  Gerry loved Love Island this summer and Michael is obsessed with Sky Sports.  David lives with his granny so he grew up watching daytime TV with her including The Jeremy Kyle Show and Loose Women.

If reaction to Gerry is anything to go by we reckon he'd do well on First Dates or Love Island himself!

Gogglebox Ireland airs every Wednesday night at 9pm on TV3.
