The current cast of Gogglebox recently suffered some change, with stalwart Stephen Lustig-Webb departing the show after a decade-long stint, along with his husband Daniel.

"We feel the time is right to move on and explore other opportunities," the couple said in a statement. "We would both like to thank Channel 4 and Studio Lambert for letting us be part of this amazing, funny and heartwarming show."

"We are extremely thankful to the cast and crew, or Gogglebox family as we call them, and of course the fans, thank you for all of your love & support over the years," they said.

"We thought we would put out this little video especially for the fans of the show. Just to say thank you for all your love and support over the years, it really has meant a lot," they added in a video clip.

"If you do get withdrawal symptoms, we are always available on Netflix. Come to the salon, come and get your hair cut. It's been an absolute ride and absolute pleasure."

Gogglebox airs and streams on Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 4.
