STAY­ING MUM ON NEW RE­CRUIT

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - NEWS - By An­drew Fen­ton

GOGGLEBOX Aus­tralia’s new­est re­cruit is larger than life Anas­ta­sia’s 75-year-old mum An­gela, who will be fill­ing in for Faye while she’s on hol­i­days for the next two weeks.

An­gela ad­mits she’s some­times em­bar­rassed by her daugh­ter’s saucy com­ments about men dur­ing the show.

“Someone came to me and said, ‘Why does your daugh­ter speak like that on TV?’. It was when she spoke about want­ing the man with the big d---! I got em­bar­rassed and told her off. But Anas­ta­sia doesn’t care about what any­one thinks, this is what I love about her,”

Anas­ta­sia orig­i­nally au­di­tioned for the show with An­gela, but the pro­duc­ers felt she’d be bet­ter off paired with a friend, which is how Faye came to the show.

An­gela says she’s al­ways sup­ported her daugh­ter’s am­bi­tion to be on TV, but it wasn’t un­til Gogglebox that they found the right out­let for her ex­u­ber­ant per­son­al­ity.

“Anas­ta­sia is very loud. Some­times she gives me a headache when she talks too much. This is why Gogglebox suits her as she is al­ways talk­ing!”
