“We’ve trained every night for this over the last ten years, we’ve got this,” Hamish said of his latest TV gig.

Brian Walsh, Executive Director of Television at Foxtel said the network waited until the “right time” to create a celebrity spin-off of the long-running show.

“Foxtel has always held the view that if we were able to take one of our most successful shows and modify it and lift it with a celebrity version, we had to deliver the strongest line up of Australian celebrities,” he said.

“We believe we have delivered just that, for what will undoubtedly be the one of the highlights of Australian television in 2022.

“We agreed right at the very beginning that this would not be a self-serving, promotional exercise for Foxtel or 10. It’s easy to throw celebrities at a show. There’s a lot of that on Australian commercial television. But we were only interested in the A-Team for Celebrity Gogglebox.”

More big celeb names will be announced by Foxtel in the lead up to the show’s March premiere.

“What we’ve gathered is a fantastic line-up. We’re confident it’s going to be popular, and I would hope that it becomes a regular fixture of the Gogglebox season,” Brian said.

Hamish has been a staple in the Australian media for the better part of 20 years, known for his success across both radio and television.

The 40-year-old started out in radio with comedy partner Andy Lee, and is currently heard weekly on LiSTNR with their self-titled, #1 rated podcast.

On TV, Hamish’s talent spans hosting, producing, and creating, as he entertains national audiences with top rating and award-winning shows including LEGO Masters Australia.

Entrepreneur Zoë is the creator of clean, cruelty-free Australian skin care line, Go-To and is a celebrated author of twelve books, including the best-selling beauty bible, Amazinger Face, children’s title No One Likes A Fart and novel The Wrong Girl, which became an acclaimed TV series.
