Gogglebox: Tim and Leanne's best moments

Brother and sister act, Tim and Leanne joined the Gogglebox couch in season 9 and have been making us laugh ever since. 

They're the newbies to the Gogglebox family but have fit right in, as they continue to give us all the feels each week with their hilarious anecdotes and heartfelt moments. As we approach the end of the ninth season, we look at some of their best moments so far. 

Hole in one

The siblings watch a program that discusses the possibility of a sinkhole in Reading, England. For Tim, the keyword here was the suburb. "That's Reading! I've been there!" he exclaims. Sister, Leanne asks the obvious question: "Did you get swallowed by a sinkhole when you were there?" But just as siblings do, Tim answers with a cheeky remark: "Well, not a sinkhole." No further questions. 

Love and surf

A genetically blessed lifeguard on Bondi Rescue describes a recent save of swimmers that were struggling in the ocean. He says that due to the fast-paced nature of the rescue, he had to position the man on the board facing him, in close proximity. Tim is delighted and starts packing his beach bag. "Maybe I should go and try to drown myself!" he says. "Oh, I can't breathe, I need mouth to mouth." That ol' chestnut.

Ghee me up

Tim and Leanne watch The Weekly when panel host Judith Lucy discusses her recent Ghee colonic irrigation. This sparks a flashback for Tim: "I've done that!" he exclaims to a shocked Leanne. "Not Ghee, not ghee. Caffeine - coffee colonic irrigation," he says. "Highly cleansing." 

Multiple sneezes

Leanne sits on the lounge while Tim makes an interesting observation about his sister. "You've never sneezed once," he says. "It's always in increments of five or six." But just when you think it's almost over, Tim strikes: "Don't they say five equals an orgasm?" This brings back memories for Leanne, as she says, "Maybe that's why I'm always sneezing." You do you, Leanne. 

Mars and venus

The two watch a program on childbirth when Tim makes a bold statement. "You women don't understand. Having a papercut is the worst thing ever. There's nothing that you all go through..." ah, if only. The labour progresses, and so do Tim's comments. "As a gay guy, I will never, ever be in a birthing suite - so I will never be able to exp..." but the sight of birth interrupts his prose and Tim taps out. 

Dance battle

Travel Guides features a group of friends singing karaoke a boat in the Philippines, with the locals joining in. Tim offers his observation on the situation. "You know how they always say white people can't dance? Asians are worse," he tells. "It's the clapping, it's all they do."
