Gogglebox viewers had mixed opinions on the two new families

The first episode saw two new families gracing the Gogglebox show, but not all viewers were happy to see new faces.

Some were dismayed to see new families added to the show – the Baggs family and the Walker family.

One viewer tweeted: “New family alert…not sure yet.”

Please STOP bringing in new families.

Another added: “Regarding the new families… if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

A third said: “Please STOP bringing in new families. There’s enough on there and we don’t need anymore!”

What did other Gogglebox viewers say?

However, some viewers defended the new additions. One viewer tweeted: “If you don’t like new families, you’re not really giving them a chance from the off!

“They were all new families once, quite frankly, I’m OK with the whole programme because I genuinely love it and welcome it’s return.”

Another echoed their thoughts, and said: “How are people not liking the new family you lot are miserable I swear they are adorable and funny.”
