Johannesburg – Gogglebox South Africa – Sony Pictures Television Networks’ first locally commissioned South African television series – is set to have us glued to the box, with a concept that will have you addicted to watching people - watching TV!

A number of specially selected South African households look set to become the country’s latest reality stars when Gogglebox South Africa premieres on Thursday 3 March at 21:00 on the Sony Channel (DStv Channel 127).

A diverse mix of South African’s will be represented on the show where we are invited into ordinary people’s living rooms. 

Meet some of Gogglebox’s households:

Portuguese married couple Travis and Giselle, both share the same professional interest as online content producers. This couple is bold and entertaining. Their strong connection as a couple will be tested as this couple don’t always see eye-to-eye. 

Valentine and Melissa enjoy spending their time doing the simple things in life as a couple – having dinner and drinks in front of the TV. Valentine a make-up sales rep and Melissa a home executive share their time with their three-year-old son. A dynamic, supportive and beautiful young family that will be sure to keep you entertained.

Best friends, Eslina and Mirriam  have been by each other’s side since the age of 15. Eslina is a home executive, while Mirriam is a domestic worker. They are entertaining, open and honest, with the best sense of humour. Their contrasting personalities with Mirriam taking the role as the ‘big sister’ and Eslina’s ‘sometimes naughty’ behaviour are sure to get viewers hooked.

Sisters Tamzin and Adele describe themselves as fun, loud and opinionated. Tamzin is a dance teacher and Adele is a relationship executive. The sisters enjoy spending time together but don’t always agree on what to watch. With Tazmin’s care free attitude and Adele’s more intellectual views, these sisters are set to provide entertainment.

Shaleen Surtie-Richards and Lizz Meiring give the lowdown on why you should tune into this hot new show.
