Celebrity Gogglebox 2021 cast: Denise Van Outen and Eddie Boxshall

Eddie is a commodities trader from Essex who specialises in the oil business.

Denise and Eddie met back in July 2014 after they were introduced by a mutual friend.

Shaun has appeared in a number of TV shows including the BBC3 documentary Shaun Ryder: The Ecstasy and the Agony and I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
