With the Gogglebox gang now back for business, there’s no holding back as they witness the first MAFS wedding of the new season.
We couldn’t wait for the return of our Gogglebox families plus meeting the new addition to the crew, brother and sister Tim and Leanne.
The first episode of the ninth season started with a bang - and a wedding. The Goggleboxers witnessed the union of Jules and Cameron on Married at First Sight, and there were mixed emotions.
The first meet
Upon meeting the red-headed beauty, or as Jad refers to her as, “The red-haired lady on the match-sticks”, Jules defiantly states that she’s ready to be with someone forever.
However, Tim isn’t so sure. “You’re not going to find the love of your life on a national television program, love.”
Next, we meet Jules’ future husband, Cameron, who identifies himself as a former pro-cricketer but Adam, a sports fan has some questions: “Never heard of him. Is he that successful?”
On the cricket field, Cameron is looking wistfully into the distance as we learn he’s never found his perfect partner and he’s never been married or had kids. Right in this sombre moment, Matt Dalton can’t let this perfect dad-joke opportunity slip away. “He just couldn’t bowl a maiden over.” Of course, he cops an unimpressed stare from his youngest daughter, Holly.

Walking down the aisle
As one of the show’s psychologists excitedly claims that this union may be the strongest yet, Matt Dalton woefully predicts, “Ugh. That means it’s going to end in absolute tears!”
Jules is preparing to walk down the aisle, but in her last few moments of unmarried life she admits, “I’m excited, but I’m kind of s****** myself at the same time.” While most of us didn't take this in the literal sense, nothing gets past Faye. “You’re wearing white, darls. You can’t s*** yourself.”
Jules is now walking down the aisle looking at the back of her mystery man, and the Goggleboxers can’t handle it. Cameron is just about to turn around when Isabelle excitedly squeals, “This is the best bit!”
The main event
Jules approaches the altar and the two finally lock eyes on each other. Cameron is sporting an ear-to-ear smile, but the Goggleboxers aren’t too sure they believe his sincerity. “She looks like she could eat him for breakfast!” Di exclaims looking concerned, with husband Mick chuckling in return.
But Cameron’s grin doesn’t worry Jules, as she interprets it as the kindest smile. While this is all fine, Isabelle asks the important question: “But would you have sex with him?”
The vows are being recited, and in this romantic moment, Keith cuts in with a fond memory of his own special day with Lee: “I can’t remember our vows.”
The celebrant declares Jules and Cameron to be husband and wife, with resounding happiness from the Gogglebox families. Isabelle's nan passes her a tissue to mop up her happy years and Anastasia speaks on behalf all of us when she says, “Oh my God, I hope they make it!”
