Gogglebox favourites Dave and Shirley Griffths have sent their fans into a frenzy by posting a shirtless picture of their seldom-seen son. The television duo, who have been regulars on the Channel 4 show since 2015, film from their residence in Caerphilly, near Cardiff.

The couple, who have been together for over four decades, have two children, Simon and Gemma, who prefer to stay away from the limelight and do not appear with them on the programme. However, they recently shared a shirtless photo of Simon on their joint Instagram account, much to the delight of their 199,000 followers.

Dressed only in yellow shorts and a black cap, Simon gave a thumbs up for the camera. The caption read: "Just like his farther ripped # gogglebox #dubai."

As expected, the post grabbed the attention of fans who were left swooning over Simon's holiday snap. One fan exclaimed: "He's hot". Another queried: "Is he single lol. " A third person commented: "Wow!

Another added: "He's proper fit!" And another fan posted: "Oh hello" accompanied by heart-eyed emojis. It comes after they praised him on their social media after he completed the London Marathon.

Shirley and Dave were introduced to the Gogglebox audience nine years ago after being spotted by a casting agent. They both have jobs outside of the Channel 4 show.

Dave works at a factory as a cleaner and Shirley serves in the retail sector. Stars of the show reportedly get paid £1,500 per month per family.

And they can also order takeaways and treats for while they are watching the featured shows.
