Gogglebox extra – What you didn’t see this week on TV: The Goggleboxers notice the signs of ageing

We all notice the changes in our bodies as we grow older, and the Goggleboxers are no different.

It's the inevitable part of life, that we age and change as we grow. And while some of us have come to terms with this, others aren't as accepting - or ready for it. And this week, some of the Goggleboxers have noticed their own changes.

Some things never change

The Silbery's are sitting together at home when Emmie begins playing with her ear, and suddenly says, "It's gone." With no context, her daughter Kerry questions, "What's gone?" Leaning over, Emmie replies, "My hearing's gone," but Isabelle laughs saying it was gone a long time ago. Then Emmie asks, "What?"  

Age is just a number

Over at the Fahd's, Jad tells his friends that when he was in their lift, he noticed a growth of grey hairs and came to the conclusion that 'this is the start'. "I said to myself, 'Girls find you attractive until the grey hairs start to rock up. You know how girls have to give birth in that window in that age bracket? I've got my window now'," he says. 

And always full of support, Matty chimes in and warns him that it's all slowly going downhill. "You've got three months to lock someone down," he laughs. "I need kids in the next eight months!," Jad replies. But soon realises the maths breakdown: "Actually you need nine months, ay?" Throwing his head back in laughter, Matty gives him the verdict: "You're not ready for kids, bro."

Parental guidance

At the Del's, Patrick is saying that he's over the moon that his daughter, Vestal has turned 21. "These are the best times ever for you, from now on," he says to his daughter. 

And with that sense of freedom, Vestal then asks her dad the most-asked question to parents: "So I can do what I want?" But almost immediately, her mother, Tracey pipes in to clarify: "I don't think so."
