Physiotherapists Symon and Adam made their Gogglebox debut during the show’s first season on Channel 10 and Foxtel in 2015, but announced their departure in November 2019 after five years and 10 seasons.
Symon said: ‘We were lucky because we were on Gogglebox for such a long time, we had forgotten everything that we’d said about everybody.’
‘We generally go for the volume approach; saying a lot of thing about a lot of people. There wasn’t any a particular standouts, which was nice. It was comforting, almost like ignorance is bliss,’ he joked.
‘Also, I think it’s all pretty good-natured stuff [on Gogglebox]. We’re not the most offensive guys getting around – or we at least try not to be,’ Adam added.

Adam chose to respond, even though filming had well and truly wrapped, writing: ‘we think we were kind? We hope…’
Instead, Adam said the biggest concern for the pair was that they were literally trading in the creature comforts of Gogglebox for creepy crawlies, cold showers, camp beds and much less food than they’d have available at home.
