The siblings showed off their new looks with a picture of them both in Elie's sitting room, which is now a familiar part Gogglebox every Friday night.

While Izzi was sporting a wavier look to her long brunette locks, it was Ellie who was showcasing the biggest makeover after dying her usual blonde hair half purple and half pink.

As the sisters don't live in the same house, they were forced to stay apart as the country went into lockdown, leaving Ellie's boyfriend Nat to step in and take Izzi's place.

When they were finally reunited in the last series, Ofcom received complaints regarding social distancing.

Channel 4 has confirmed that Gogglebox will be back with series 16 next week, and that the series will consist of 15 episodes for fans to enjoy.

The new series of Gogglebox starts on 11th September at 9pm on Channel 4.
