The show everyone has been waiting for will invite viewers into the loungerooms of our most famous celebrities, as they step away from their known habitats- panel desks, radio mics, stages, stoves, and television hosting duties. Get comfy on the couch with the celebrities as they become our first famous armchair critics on Celebrity Gogglebox Australia.
Foxtel today announced the first celebrities to take their position on the couch are Hamish Blake and Zoë Foster Blake, one of Australia’s most-loved couples. Best known for his success across both radio and television, Hamish started out in radio with comedy partner Andy Lee, and is currently heard weekly on LiSTNR with their self-titled, #1 rated podcast. On television, Hamish’s talent spans hosting, producing, and creating, as he entertains national audiences with top rating and award-winning shows including LEGO Masters Australia.
Entrepreneur Zoë is the creator of clean, cruelty-free Australian skin care line, Go-To and is recognised as an author of twelve books, including the best-selling beauty bible, ‘Amazinger Face’, children’s title ‘No One Likes A Fart’ and novel ‘The Wrong Girl’, which became an acclaimed TV series.
Hamish Blake said: “We’ve trained every night for this over the last ten years, we’ve got this.”
To be announced soon, the line-up joining Hamish & Zoë on Celebrity Gogglebox include Australia’s most celebrated television hosts, comedians, radio presenters and performers. Viewers will discover what shows make our celebrities laugh, debate, and scream at their television screens and the question everyone is asking – will they be watching themselves?
Brian Walsh, Executive Director of Television – FOXTEL Group, said: “We waited until the time was right to commission Celebrity Gogglebox. FOXTEL has always held the view that if we were able to take one of our most successful shows and modify it and lift it with a celebrity version, we had to deliver the strongest line up of Australian celebrities. We believe we have delivered just that, for what will undoubtedly be the one of the highlights of Australian television in 2022.
FOXTEL is incredibly excited about our ensemble cast covering all fields of endeavor- television, sport, comedy, and lifestyle. Clearly if our first Celebrity Gogglebox resonates with our FOXTEL subscribers, our ambition would be to make it a regular fixture on the Gogglebox calendar.”
David McDonald, Endemol Shine Australia Head of Comedy said, “We’re beyond excited at the calibre of the celebrity Goggleboxers set to pull up a couch with us! We can’t wait to reveal the full line-up.”
