Foxtel and Network Ten today announced that one new household will be joining the hit local-production, Gogglebox Australia, when season 6 premieres Wednesday, October 4, at 7.30pm on Foxtel’s Lifestyle channel and streaming on Foxtel Now, and broadcast the following day, Thursday October 5, at 8.30pm on Network Ten.
Engaged couple Matty and Sarah Marie and their friend Jad have big personalities, a shared love of food and are excited to bring some “Middle-Eastern flavour” to Gogglebox Australia this season. Sarah Marie is your down-to-earth ‘girl next door’ and owner of a makeup and hair agency, entrepreneur and café owner Jad is the larrikin of the group, and Marketing and Communications Director Matty is the responsible one, having the final call on most things, including what’s on the box.
Matty and Jad have been friends for over 10 years, first meeting through the Sydney club scene where they both worked in their early twenties. Matty started dating Sarah Marie four years ago and the trio have formed a close friendship; Jad is like Matty and Sarah Marie’s younger, immature brother. Although having differing tastes in television – Matty lives and breathes sports, Sarah Marie loves her cartoons, and Jad is a fan of cooking shows – the three love sitting down to watch a movie together, so long as there is food involved.
Produced by EndemolShine Australia, executive producer, David McDonald said, “The most important thing about the Gogglebox cast is finding a diverse range of people who offer a variety of opinions and points of view. We’re really excited to see what Matty, Sarah Marie & Jad deliver with their unique take and opinions.”
Matty, Sarah Marie & Jad will join returning cast including Greek best friends Anastasia & Faye; cocktail-loving Wayne & Tom; the adorable and sports-crazy Jackson Family; the fun-loving and cricket-mad Delpechitra Family; vivacious friends Angie & Yvie; best mates and larrikins with a thirst for life Adam & Symon; dealers in Indigenous Art Mick & Di; the close-knit Dalton Family; happily married couple Lee & Keith; and the three generations of women in the Silbery Family.
Gogglebox Australia is an Endemol Shine Australia production for Foxtel and Network Ten.
