Last year, Gogglebox Australia celebrated 100 episodes of the show.
It was a milestone for the reality series after initial doubts from so many people, including the cast.
Will they star in the series? Mr Walsh also revealed that Anthony Callea and her husband Tim Campbell are being considered for the series.
While reflecting on the past five years of filming, many stars have said they don’t think the show will work because it’s just ‘people are watching people are watching TV’.
Fan favorites Lee and Keith said they thought it would be a flop.
“What did I think? “Oh, this will last an episode and we won’t have to worry about it anymore,” Lee recalls.
Raising his beer, Keith added, “And we’re still going beautiful. That’s 100 cheers. Here are 100 more cheers.”
