Gogglebox 2021 has arrived as we join TV fans across the UK as they offer commentary on popular programmes. Expect plenty of laughs, scathing comments, and strong opinions each week as these lovable households continue to tell us what they really think about recent TV shows. 

Before this series the last time we saw the Gogglebox stars was in a Christmas special, but they're finally back to bring some much needed joy to our Friday nights.

Here's who's in the current series, what they're watching, when it's on, funny quotes and more...
