Gogglebox stars Dave and Shirley Griffiths have left fans feeling a touch of sadness after announcing a show update. The beloved duo, from Caerphilly, who became part of the Channel 4 programme in 2015, revealed that the episode airing last night - Friday, May 24 - marks the end of the current series.

In a video message from their home, shared with Instagram followers, they announced their absence from our screens until September. Shirley said: "Hi everyone, don't forget to tune in tonight at 9pm, have a good weekend and enjoy the Bank Holiday. Lots of love, Shirl."

Following Shirley's message and a kiss to the camera, Dave added: "Yes, sadly the last one tonight for the series so make sure you watch, all have a great summer. Oh and by the way, don't forget the voting for the NTAs (National Television Awards) has opened so if you can afford us a vote, Gogglebox, we'd appreciate it. Have a great summer, tara all, see you next time around," reports the Liverpool Echo.

Another lamented the loss of their Friday night staple, saying: "Oh no, Friday nights won't be the same without Googlebox," while another echoed the sentiment, replying: "I agree missing them already!."
