WHAT’S NEW FOR SEA­SON TWO?

Herald Sun - Switched On - - FRONT PAGE -

When it launched ear­lier this year, Gog­gle­box proved that au­di­ences love to see or­di­nary peo­ple watch­ing TV. So what can we ex­pect from the hit show’s sec­ond sea­son?

All cast mem­bers will be back, and ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer David McDon­ald says this time they’ll have a chance to re­veal more of their per­son­al­i­ties.

“For the first se­ries, the con­cept of the show was hard enough for ev­ery­one to get their head around,” he says.

In the off sea­son, long­time part­ners Wayne and Tom got en­gaged, and posh cou­ple Di and Mick (above) have be­come grand­par­ents for the first time.

“Think­ing of Di with a ma­ter­nal side is quite amus­ing. Some of the re­al­ity mo­ments they had were all about how Mick was a ter­ri­ble fa­ther, didn’t help change nap­pies, and they were hav­ing an ar­gu­ment about it,” McDon­ald says

As to what they’ll be watch­ing? “We just had a fab­u­lous news story (Turnbull v Ab­bott), what a shame they couldn’t have waited a cou­ple of weeks for it.

“It’s funny be­cause I think the news item in our first episode was that the spill was on, and here we are six months later, it’s ac­tu­ally hap­pened.”
