GOGGLEBOX lovers all have their favourite families on the show.
And for many that will be the endearing, funny and at times emotional, Gilbey family – but who are they?
The Essex based Gilbey family comprise of Lynne and Peter and their son George, 32.
Lynne and Pete have fostered over 68 children over the past 16 years and biological son George recently welcomed his first child, a daughter named Amelie, into the world.
The family were briefly dropped from Gogglebox in 2014 – because George decided to appear on Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother – but were reinstated afterwards.
George Gilbey, an electrician, met his current partner Gemma, a teacher, at the 2015 Ascot races and it didn’t take long before he realised that she was a keeper.
The pair announced that they were expecting nine months after they met.
The TV favourite previously gushed about his love for Gemma and insisted she’s not like other girls he’s romanced in the past – which have included his CBB co-star, Stephanie Pratt.
