When is Goggleback back?

Ellie’s new look comes just in time for the return of Gogglebox next month.

The hit series is set to return to screens on Friday September 11.

The show’s co-creator Tania Alexander announced the exciting news on Twitter, writing: “Huge thank you for your kind messages re. Gogglebox and Celebrity Gogglebox.

“It really wasn’t easy getting this show to air every week during lockdown but your support made it all worth it. Big shout out to the cast from both shows and my amazing team.”

Ellie Warner’s social distancing drama

Ellie and Izzi became firm favourites with viewers after they joined the Channel 4 series back in 2015.

Despite living in separate houses during lockdown, the sisters still managed to film the last series of Gogglebox together.

However, they were caught up in controversy in April when they were accused of breaking social distancing rules.

Channel 4’s message at the start of the show insisted all social distancing rules were being adhered too, but viewers weren’t so sure, with many taking to Twitter to voice their complaints.

At the time of the complaints, a Channel 4 spokesperson revealed that they filmed recent episodes before Boris Johnson’s lockdown announcement.

They added that going forward “stricter filming protocols” were in place. And safety of crew and stars of the show was paramount.

Meanwhile, Ellie certainly isn’t the only Gogglebox star to spruce up their hair in recent weeks.

Last month, Sophie Sandiford wowed fans she she took to social media to show off her new silver hair.
