Just when you think you know all the families/friends sitting on the sofas on Gogglebox like they’re your own best mates, Channel 4 go and surprise viewers with some new additions to the cast.
First up, from Bristol, meet best friends Mary (yes, another Mary) and Marina.

Friendship goals: Mary and Marina. ❤️ #Gogglebox— Liam Beattie (@Liam_Beattie) September 23, 2016
Unsurprisingly, people on Twitter seemed to love the hilarious ladies, and their Bristolian accents, pretty much straight away…

Their commentary on the Brangelina split was especially great – including their reaction to Brad Pitt’s beard.

"Would you take Brad Pitt?" "Not with the beard" "No... I'd let him wine & dine me though" #Gogglebox— Ian (@WhiskyWithWater) September 23, 2016
Other Gogglebox newbies include the three T’s, who are from Bristol too.
Oh, and there’s a new family of four from Dorset on our screens.
They just laughed because the chopping boards made of wood... oh to be posh #gogglebox— Nichola 🐝 (@NicGingeNac) September 23, 2016
While many people seem to be (mostly) loving the newbies, there’s no ignoring that there were some major concerns for some viewers.
Certain Gogglebox cast members were missing from this week’s episode – yes, Sandy and Sandra, we’re looking at you.
TELL ME they haven't got rid of Sandra & Sandy #gogglebox 😡😡— James Little (@Littlenufc) September 23, 2016
It's nice that Googlebox is back but where are June and Leon, Sandy and Sandra. Hoping they haven't left #gogglebox— Kerry Lambourne (@kerry_lambourne) September 23, 2016
