WATCH­ING THE WATCH­ERS

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Front Page -

STRAP in for sea­son nine. The TV show about people watch­ing TV has now won sev­eral Lo­gies and even spawned shameless im­i­ta­tions on the Mel­bourne FootyShow (RIP). Be­ing seen na­tion­ally on Gog­gle­box is even enough to fast track you to I’maCelebrit­y…Get MeOut­ofHere!, with for­mer fan favourites Angie and Yvie pop­ping up in the jun­gle. There’s form with that tra­jec­tory, af­ter UK Gog­gle­boxer Scar­lett Mof­fat ac­tu­ally won the se­ries over there and launched her own ca­reer – now pre­sent­ing, along­side Bri­tish TV dar­lings, Ant and Dec. Alas, one of the best laughs on telly. Plus the Jack­son fam­ily, the Delpe­chi­tra fam­ily and the Dal­ton fam­ily; plus Matty and Sarah Marie and their friend Jad. It’d be a nice In­cep­tion mo­ment if the cur­rent Gog­gle­box cast got to com­men­tate on I’maCelebrit­y…GetMeOut­ofHere!, but they’ll prob­a­bly find them­selves like ev­ery­one else and strug­gling to find half-de­cent things that have been on the TV over sum­mer to dis­cuss in any great de­tail. We’re still hop­ing this could be the year that they adopt the Bri­tish lead (the coun­try that spawned the show) and do a Celebri­tyGog­gle­box.
