Gogglebox: Chantel reveals her heartbreaking family loss

The new Goggleboxer has shared some heart-wrenching news.

The Goggleboxers were watching a segment on Survivor when one of the competitors, ex-cricket player, Lee Carseldine received the devastating news that his mother had suffered a terrible stroke.

Upon witnessing Lee's grief while hearing the distressing phone call, it was a sombre scene for all the Goggleboxers watching, and sadly, brought back some memories for new Goggleboxer, Chantel.

"That's the worst phone call you can get," the 23-year-old said. "My mum passed away when I was a teenager, and I still remember that phone call. 

"It's like being shot in the stomach. It's the worst feeling, I can't explain. I feel for him so much," she adds.

The other Goggleboxers were also deeply affected by the former cricketer's news.

"Oh god, that's not fair," Tim remarked through tears.

Lee was also overcome with sadness, not able to stop her tears flowing.

The emotional moment amplified when the show ended, paying tribute to the ex-cricketer's late mother who had passed away from the stroke. 

The news became too much for Lee to bear, unable to speak and needing a comforting hand from her husband, Keith.
