Gogglebox: Adam and Symon reveal they won't be returning next season

They were the best friends we loved to watch and laughed along at their take on the world, but Adam and Symon are moving on from Gogglebox.

Known for their banter, bromance and brilliant taste in socks, Adam and Symon will be missed on our screens.

In a statement posted online, Adam revealed that their time on the show has come to an end, and after five years of lending their wit to the TV show, they were feeling both excited, but also sad.

"The last 5 years of fun started when we were found at a pub and only said yes to the being on the show because we wanted to go to the Logies," Adam candidly revealed.

"Thank you to the cast, the crew and of course everyone who has watched the show and allowed two idiots have more fun than they could dream of. The biggest thank you of all is reserved for @symonlovett, wouldn’t have wanted to do it with anyone else and literally couldn’t have done it without you."

The good news is, the lads plan on launching a media career after their time on Gogglebox, with Adam also taking the opportunity to cheekily put the feelers out for their next opportunity.

"We’re planning on still being around on your tv and radio a bit longer though," he wrote, "So if anyone has a job for us, we’ve got a lot of time on our hands!"

While fans were saddened to hear of the news, no one felt it as much as their fellow Goggleboxers:

"A mega contribution to the show over the last 10 seasons boys, keeping us in stiches every week. We will miss you and can’t wait to see what is next," Matty wrote.

"Big news but exciting times for you both," said Kate Dalton. "If you are light on jobs...welcome to help @mattyd_1967 with clearing some weeds. Will miss you both on the GB couch but don't be strangers xx"

Kate's husband, Matt responded, "Was positive u guys had finished up end of season 9.....???"

And fellow comedian, Jad wrote a heartfelt but hilarious message when he said, "What an outstanding innings you boys have played. Thanks for all the good laughs. The show won’t be the same without you both. You’ve built an unforgettable gogglebox legacy. Good luck in the future and if you boys need some extra cash I need a couple waiters at the café. Your trial is tomorrow."

Gogglebox fans added their messges of support, with one fan writing, "You two made me chuckle a lot. Best of luck in your future endeavours boys. Your faces and humour will be very much missed," while another said, "Seriously loved you both. You will be missed by my whole family as all enjoyed your insights, humour and socks. Take care and we wish you well."

While we don't know exactly what's in store next for the lads, we hope that this is the start of something amazing for them - and we hope to see or hear from them very soon!
