Channel 4’s Gogglebox stars The Woerdenwebers will be opening their home to the public because of their new found fame!
The heavy metal-loving family will invite viewers back into their Tranmere front room from Friday, February 20.
Vivien, husband Ralf, daughter Eve and her boyfriend Jay are all watched by millions weekly on Channel 4’s popular reality series in which we watch the families watching TV.
With a camera crew in their home, Viv describes them as being like a visiting extended family, although it does present challenges when it comes to meal times.
“We all rush home from work for six to get ready to start filming. Then we watch a series of things, some live, some recorded, and on some occasions it can go on until quite late.” Viv revealed.
“The crew are based in the kitchen with their mini studio so sometimes it’s difficult to make dinner. We were having takeaways but there are only so many you can eat and I’m seriously trying to lose some weight so I’m not sure what we’ll do this time.”
The Woerdenwebers have made quite an impression since they first appeared during the second series after Viv was approached by producers at work.
Although it’s a packed 12-weeks of filming, twice a week, Viv says she misses it once the crew leave, but can’t bring herself to watch the footage.
Eve added: “When we started doing it we thought it wouldn’t last. When you think about a TV series of people watching TV it didn’t sound that interesting so we didn’t think it would last.
“Now we’ve just won a BAFTA and no-one ever expected that.”
You can meet the Woerdenwebers at the open day at the family business in Pyramids Shopping Centre from 10am to 5pm on February 21, or watch them on Gogglebox at 9pm on February 20th, when the show returns.
