The Radio 2 DJ is a big fan of the programme, and it’s said she’ll be joined by her son – who appeared on Channel 4 reality show The Circle – on the upcoming new series later this year.
A source told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre TV column:
‘Zoe is a huge fan of Gogglebox and has been watching the show for seven years.
‘She’s the perfect fit and will be teaming up with her eldest son Woody to give her opinion on the week’s telly.
‘Zoe leapt at the chance when she was asked to join the line-up and will be filming the next instalment of the show. It’s scheduled to begin later this year’.
Although the coronavirus pandemic means filming dates are “very much up in the air” at the time being, it’s said that bosses will look to push ahead while still obeying the “social distancing” guidelines.
The insider added:
‘With the ongoing lockdown, the dates are still very much up in the air but producers are hoping they can go ahead by adhering with social distancing’.
As well as Zoe and Woody, Rylan Clark-Neal and his mother Linda are expected to return for a second series after appearing on the show last year, while Martin Kemp and his son Roman are also lined up for another stint.
Woody – whose father is Zoe’s ex husband Fatboy Slim – previously revealed his famous parents offered him some advice ahead of his stint on The Circle last year.
Speaking before appearing on the game show, he said:
‘They have given me a lot to think about from past experiences, and advice.
‘They said that what you say on TV is out there forever and you can’t unsay it and that once you share too much you never unshare it’.
