Meet Gogglebox's newest family: Tim and Leanne

A new household will be joining the Gogglebox Australia crew.

It has been announced that brother and sister duo, Tim and Leanne will be joining our favourite TV lovers for the new season of Gogglebox. 

They're described as being like two peas in a pod and do everything from blogging together to eating good food together.

The siblings are of Malaysian heritage with Tim being born in Penang, where he lived until his family moved to Melbourne when he was nine-years-old. Leanne was born just two years after the move and they've been inseparable ever since. 

It comes as no surprise that family comes first with these two and ever since Tim came out, Leanne has been a rock of support and an advocate for LGBTQI rights.

They may be 11 years apart, but age is no barrier, as they both like being loud and asserting their opinions equally - Tim doesn't have final say because he's older, that's for sure! One thing they do agree on, however, is how much they love cooking shows.

Tim is a retail technology consultant and lives in the suburbs with his fiancé and their new Boston Terrier, River. Tim has a passion for travel and anything foodie related: eating food, photographing food, filming himself talking about food, or thinking about what's next on the menu. 

Leanne lives with her partner in an apartment with two adorably neurotic Chihuahuas. She spends her days at her job as an operations manager in a factory environment. Leanne is an avid gamer, dabbles in music and art, and is working on her knitting skills. 

Tim and Leanne will join our old favourites: gal pals Anastasia and Faye, happily married couple Lee and Keith, the adorable Jackson Family, the fun-loving Delpechitra Family, best mates Adam and Symon, art dealers Mick and Di, the close-knit Dalton Family, married couple Matty and Sarah Marie and their mate Jad, and the three generations of women in the Silbery Family.

Gogglebox Australia Season 9 will premiere Wednesday February 6 at 7.30pm on Lifestyle. You can also stream On Demand and if you want to catch up, all past seasons are also available.
