Gogglebox Australia: Lee and Keith, Tim and Faye share emotional news

The Goggleboxers are banding together during a tough time.

The Coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on people around the world on a number of different levels.

But it's the residents of Melbourne who have been hit hard as the Victorian state is currently in a stage 4 lockdown - which means no-one can travel further than a few kilometres from their home.

And our very own Melbourne Gogglebox families are now feeling the strain of those restrictions.

Taking to Instagram, Tim shared a post which revealed a video call between Faye Lee and Keith and himself.

"Thank you for being a friend, Traveled down a road and back again Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidant… Thank you for being a friend. No truer words have been sung," he began in the caption, using words from the Golden Girls.

"When your friends evolve into family, isolation becomes more bearable over something as simple as a video chat," Tim continued.

As a result, his fellow Melbourne-based Goggleboxers Lee and Keith were quick to reciprocate the affection on social media.

"You two are my world with what’s going on in Victoria at the moment because I know that if I’m down or worried I know you guys are there for me. Thank you, love you both," Lee wrote.

Meanwhile, Faye, who has been living alone in Melbourne also shared that she appreciated the catch-up during dire times in the state.

"That’s so cool thank u for the chat, it makes such a difference in breaking up my days/nights [love] u all," she commented on the post.

For Faye, who lost her partner to cancer a year and a half ago - this time has been particularly difficult.

However, she does remain positive - so much so - she recently posted a video enjoying a drink and listening to music while in lockdown at home.

"Who says we can't turn a bad situation good?" she is heard saying. 

Indeed. Sending love to all the Gogglebox families and any residents in Melbourne during the Stage 4 lockdown - and we can't wait to see you back on our screens next week!
