The Saunders from County Kilkenny.

Ireland’s favourite TV critics are back, as a brand new series of ‘Gogglebox Ireland’ starts on Virgin Media One tomorrow night, Wednesday 9th September at 9pm.

The Gogglebox families have been waiting months to let loose and have their say on the pandemic and every other crazy event from 2020.

Spread across Ireland, this season the cast will be very vocal about what Ireland really thinks about lockdown, the government and the countless boxsets and TV shows we’ve all been glued to.

This season, all the viewer favourites are back, but we’ll see some changes in layout and some new sofas as the Gogglebox families have had to adapt to social distancing.

The Tully’s infamous sofa has been consigned to the attic in favour of two recliners set 2 meters apart.  

In the first episode, two brand new households that will join our much loved armchair commentators, giving their critiques of the week’s biggest and best shows on television.

On tomorrow night’s episode, Gogglebox Ireland heads to County Kilkenny for the first time ever as we welcome The Saunders family.

Homecare worker Helen and retired Garda Der have been together for nearly 40 years and have 4 sons, with 3 of them joining the couple on their comfy corner sofa.

The Saunders go out of their way for a good drama and comedy, but so long as they’re all together they’ll happily watch anything together.

Gary and The Mandiangus.

Also joining the cast tomorrow night is Tallaght native Lariche and her husband Gary who met growing up in the Dublin suburb before moving to Lucan to start a family.

The pair are joined by Lariche’s football-mad younger brothers Gilmar and Blair who regularly pop down the road to get stuck into anything that’s on the box, with a healthy diet of sports docs and The Kardashians featuring on the menu, albeit with some arm-twisting for the latter.
