“We thought we might get some free beers out of it, on that front we’ve well and truly filled out boots.
“We’re pumped for the future and if you’ve got a job I know a couple of guys. #unemployed.”
Adam also shared the news on his own Instagram account.
“The last 5 years of fun started when we were found at a pub and only said yes to the being on the show because we wanted to go to the Logies,” he wrote.
“Thank you to the cast, the crew and of course everyone who has watched the show and allowed two idiots have more fun than they could dream of.
“The biggest thank you of all is reserved for @symonlovett, wouldn’t have wanted to do it with anyone else and literally couldn’t have done it without you.
“We’re planning on still being around on your TV and radio a bit longer though, so if anyone has a job for us, we’ve got a lot of time on our hands! #couchpotatoesnomore.”
Although the Gogglebox stars didn’t elaborate on their reasons for leaving, they promised they would go into further detail on their podcast The Adam and Simon Show, on Tuesday.
Former Gogglebox star and most recent Bachelorette, Angie Kent was quick to express her sadness at the boys’ departure.
“Won’t be the same without you two that’s for sure,” she wrote on Lovett’s post.
Meanwhile her former co-star Yvie Jones predicted big things in the future for the loveable pair: “Congrats boys!!! So proud of you making the leap! I can imagine we’ll be seeing MUCH more of you two xxx,” she wrote.
