Gogglebox returned for a new series tonight (September 11), bringing with it a number of unfamiliar faces.
While viewers were delighted to see the return of the Channel 4 show, many weren't so keen to see two new families make their debuts – the Walkers and the Baggs.
The two new families were unceremoniously squeezed into tonight's premiere, but that didn't stop some people at home complaining about the Earth-shattering change to the line-up.
"In this time of uncertainty I want comfortable familiarity... I don't want anymore change... sorry to these new families but I DON'T LIKE IT," tweeted one person.
Another wrote: "I HATE when Gogglebox brings on new families. They always try to hard to be funny."
"New families try too hard, it's uncomfortable to watch," added another.
A fourth perturbed individual wrote: "No one likes new families, dont the producers read Twitter every time they introduce new ones."
While not everyone was thrilled about the fact they'd have to learn a whole new bunch of names, it's worth noting that a lot of viewers typically take some time to warm to new additions. After all, not everyone on the show has been there since series one.
Having said that, not everyone was incandescent with rage to see some new faces.
"#GOGGLEBOX definitely the best program of the week. Like a comfort blanket. Very glad to see old families back with a few new ones too," tweeted a more positive viewer.
Another wrote: "#GOGGLEBOX loved it. Great to see everyone again and the new families."
Check clips of the new families, as well as some of the viewer reactions to tonight's premiere, below.
