Gogglebox favourites Dave and Shirley confirm show return in announcement

They have become firm favourites for Gogglebox viewers since joining the show in 2015.

Now, Welsh couple Dave and Shirley Griffiths have confirmed their scenes are "all done" as they revealed the show is going off air until 2022.

Posting on their personal Twitter account, factory cleaner Dave and retail worker Shirley said: "We are all done for this year.

"So happy Christmas everyone and a happy new year see you next time love dave and shirley xxx."

Their followers were relieved that the popular pair's pause in filming is temporary.

"Thank you both for the much needed laughter,you are a wonderful couple. Merry Christmas and a super 2022 to you both," said one.

Another fan wrote: Back at you….hope you both have a brilliant christmas, and wish you all the best for 2022!! Stay safe…take care. See you next year on #Gogglebox"

The couple, who have been together for over 40 years, have two grown up children – Simon and Gemma. They live in Caerphilly, in the South Wales valleys and not too far out of Cardiff.

Meanwhile, Gogglebox friends Jenny Newby and Lee Riley have assured viewers that they're not leaving the show following a mix up.

Jenny and Lee – who appear on the show from Jenny's static caravan in Hull – set the record straight after Radio 2 presenter Jo Whiley mistakenly claimed they were leaving.

After the broadcast one concerned fan tweeted the duo, who replied: "Well Jo is totally wrong".

Jo subsequently apologised for the slip-up, tweeting:

"I am SOOOO sorry!!! I completely thought I'd read you were leaving, I'm sure I did! Maybe I dreamt it," adding that she was "really happy to hear" they were staying.

Jenny and Lee also had to shut down exit rumours back in October after they missed one episode of Gogglebox.

They revealed at the time that they were actually in Cyprus celebrating Lee's partner Steve's birthday, writing on Instagram: "SORRY FOLKS WE'RE COMING BACK SEE YOU ALL ON FRIDAY #gogglebox."

Best pals Jenny and Lee have been staples of the show for years – and they'd definitely be missed by fans if they ever do decide to quit.
