Gogglebox's Lee and Keith issue urgent plea to Australia

Goggleboxers Lee and Keith have released a video to fans, after a shopping trip in Victoria. 

The loveable pair targetted shoppers in Victoria for clearing out the toilet paper aisle following a new wave of Coronavirus cases.

Since 17 new cases were confirmed in the southern state this week, Woolworths, Coles and other local supermarkets have been running out of stock of the essential bathroom item pushing them to reinstate shopping limits around the country. 

But for Lee and Keith, the rise in cases isn't enough to justify bulk buying essential household products which leave others without. 

Posting on their Instagram, the Goggleboxers shared a video of their local shop's bare toilet paper aisle delivering a very frank message:

"There's no toilet paper, again," Keith says. "People, please, didn't we learn from the first time?"

"Apparently not, Keith," Lee replies.

"Get fair dinkum," the council worker continues. "We're not in the panic! Get fair dinkum!"

Keith's message has resonated with their thousands of followers, with many agreeing with their take on the matter:

"This should be broadcast on every channel as a public service announcement!" one fan wrote.

"People have lost all common sense and the ability to follow rules (which has been made painfully clear these past few months)!" another added.

"Love you guys, well said Keith and Lee," a third commented. 

Lee and Keith have been advocating against panic-buying and people breaking isolation since the first restrictions started earlier this year.

After newly welcoming their first grandchild, Riley, they were forced to spend time apart and watch her grow via Facetime which became increasingly difficult for the tight-knit family.

Speaking exclusively to LifeStyle, Lee shared her frustrations with people who weren't taking the restrictions seriously.

"I just...I don't know, how I can put it into words?," she said. "I just really really miss Riley in particular. It's good that I can see her on Facetime, but I want to hug her. I don't want her to forget about us or not know us.

"I wish everyone would stay home," she adds."Because the more we do that, the sooner it's over and we can be with our loved ones again. It's deeply affecting me."

"It's like a bad dream. It really is. I want to wake up and know that everyone's alright and there's no such thing as Coronavirus, or we have a treatment.

"It just gets me down. I feel so sorry for the nurses, doctors and people on the frontline. They're doing their best. I just wish everyone would help them out."

The grandparents have since enjoyed spending time with their baby granddaughter, catching up on lost time sharing adorable videos and photos of them together.

We hope this new lifestyle continues for our much-loved Goggleboxers and that everyone remains safe.
