Gogglebox Australia

Get to know Goggleboxers Angie and Yvie

The girls are back! And, together with their dogs, wine and takeaway food, are ready for Gogglebox Australia season two! Here's what thy are looking forward to.

Q: What's the best thing about being part of Gogglebox?

Angie: Seeing so many different people agree with how you see and relate to topics on TV. I didn’t know how people would take to my humour, especially being a young open minded loud female. I felt a lot of people may have been like WOW back up, but we really do relate to all ages / genders etc.

Yvie: Being told by a complete stranger that we make them laugh. It’s very surreal and lovely.

Q: Did you regret anything you did or said in season one?

Angie: I didn’t think that I did regret anything until my very own grandmother told me that I swore to much. She doesn’t even like it when I use the lords name in vein, so I think that when she heard the f-bomb fly out from time to time she was mortified. Her precious baby swearing didn’t go down too well! When you’re watching TV I think you don’t realise how much you really do speak your mind and swear more often.

Yvie: Nothing!

Q: What was your favourite moment from season one?

Angie: Seeing all the houses for the first time. We didn’t know who else was on the show, so it was really exciting to see who we are on the big screen with.

Yvie: The Real Housewives of Melbourne.

Q: Do you get noticed in the street by fans?

Angie: We did half way through the first season. We had quite a few middle age to older women come up to us when we were together mainly. When I was working I had a fair few different groups of people ask if I was that girl from Gogglebox. Which is really surprisingly because you forget that people actually watch you on TV.

Yvie: Sometimes. It’s lovely, they’re all very friendly.

Q: What shows are you looking forward to watching this season?

Angie: The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Big Brother (if it’s back), The Real Housewives of Melbourne and any other random new reality show that I have never heard of, that’s always such a laugh.

Yvie: Real Housewives of Melbourne! And the Bachelorette.

Which celebrity would you love to meet? 

Yvie:  Chrissie Swan!

Q: Do you laugh when you watch yourself back on TV?

Angie: We tried not to watch ourselves for the first couple of weeks. We actually made a promise to not watch the entire first season. That proved to be very difficult once we made a twitter account because we had so many people asking us about what they just saw. I love getting on Twitter and responding to the Gogglebox viewers. I feel we would’ve really missed out on some great bonding time with the viewers if we hadn’t watched it and connect with the on social media.

Yvie: Completely!

Gogglebox Australia airs first on Foxtel on Wednesdays at 9.30PM AEDT.
