Another Gogglebox pair bites the dust!
Adam Densten and Symon Lovett have announced that they are leaving the show, taking to social media to tell their fans that they won’t be returning for season 11.
“After 5 years we wanted to thank everyone that watched the show, helped make the show and was on the show,” wrote Symon on Instagram alongside a clip of the pair in the living room we’ve all come to be familiar with.
“We were asked to be on Gogglebox 5 years ago, sitting at a pub.
“We thought we might get some free beers out of it, on that front we’ve well and truly filled out boots.
“We’re pumped for the future and if you’ve got a job I know a couple of guys. #unemployed.”
Adam also posted about the news on his account, saying that the boys as “incredibly sad, but extremely excited” about their departure.
“The last 5 years of fun started when we were found at a pub and only said yes to the being on the show because we wanted to go to the Logies,” he wrote.
“Thank you to the cast, the crew and of course everyone who has watched the show and allowed two idiots have more fun than they could dream of.
“The biggest thank you of all is reserved for @symonlovett, wouldn’t have wanted to do it with anyone else and literally couldn’t have done it without you.
“We’re planning on still being around on your TV and radio a bit longer though, so if anyone has a job for us, we’ve got a lot of time on our hands! #couchpotatoesnomore.”
While no real reason was given for their departure, the boys said that they would be going into more detail on their podcast The Adam and Simon Show on Tuesday.
While it’s pretty devastating news to see some more of our favourites leaving the show, it no doubt leaves a major spot open for other TV watching fanatics to apply for the show!
So get your applications ready for whenever they announce auditions for Adam and Symon’s replacements if you’re keen!
Of course, Gogglebox started casting not too long ago for season 11 so whether they knew that the boys would be leaving at that time is unclear. It’s also possible that if this is the case, they’ve already recruited their replacements.
All we know for sure is that the boys have left some pretty big shoes to fill!
