Gogglebox Australia: Inside the moment the Dalton family broke down in tears

For The Dalton family, being a part of the Gogglebox Australia family has been a real treat.

Matt, Kate and their two daughters, Millie and Holly have found themselves discussing some of the funniest and most bizarre topics on the show.

And despite their happy-go-lucky attitude, it appears they've also also been faced with some emotional moments while watching TV - epecially Millie and Holly. 

"They've grown up on the TV, but I think now that they're forming opinions and all that type of stuff - they're growing into their own," Kate tells LifeStyle.

"I must admit the kids have sometimes shocked us with the things they say on the couch recently," adds Matt.

"They've got opinions on topics that I wouldn't even think they knew about...

"But they're out studying and learning stuff. So, sometimes the couch is a place for a topic of conversation that you wouldn't normally have at the dinner table," he continues.

And it appears the parents are starting to notice that they don't always agree with their daughters.

"You can really see the generation gap between us because Matt and I have opinions formulated from our upbringing and the girls are in this completely different world. You can understand the collision of our worlds," said Kate.

"Even though we're very close and you can tell that by out banter, but Gogglebox has completely brought us together. We've covered so many conversations and some of them have been confronting over time, but we've got to know each other a lot through the show."

In fact, Matt says it's been a pleasure to watch his daughters grow up before his eyes.

"I used to think I could pick what the kids would say but sometimes now they say the complete opposite and I'm like, 'Really?!'"

"I remember there was one show we watched, it was back in the first couple of seasons when we were a bit more guarded... It was about MH370  - the Malaysian airlines crash," he explains.

"We travel a fair bit for work, and my daughter Millie was about 16 at the time. The woman on the show had lost her husband, and she said, 'I know he's out there somewhere but he'll just come back.'"

Tears aside, Kate reveals these moments are precious for  the family and will always be there to view later in life, particularly as their daughters mature.

"I'm glad they caught it, it is a lovely moment, for us Gogglebox is like a diary - we're going to get off the show and watch it for years to come. Our grandchildren will watch it."
