New bubble

Rylan and Linda were yet to star in the latest run of Celebrity Gogglebox.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the son and mum had to bow out over social distancing guidelines.

But the recent change in rules, however, meant that she was able to form a ‘bubble’ with her son.


On June 23, Rylan tweeted: “Guess who’s got the all clear to be in my bubble… She’s back!”

In the past, Rylan revealed that he and Linda have been swamped with offers from TV execs.

Sadly, however, Linda suffers from Crohn’s disease, so has been been forced to turn them down.

Rylan recently told the Daily Star: “We’ve been offered hundreds of things. We got asked to do a travel show and the chance to go here and go there.

“It would be hilarious, but she’s just not well enough to do it.

“Gogglebox is enough for us. She feels comfortable doing that show ­because we’re just sat in my kitchen.”
