Gogglebox's Abbie Lynn, famed for her appearances on the Channel 4 series with her best mate Georgia Bell, has been a source of entertainment since she first graced our screens in 2018. The Durham duo, often mistaken for sisters, became an internet sensation in 2020 after their reaction to Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special went viral.

Abbie's comment that the pop icon had "saved" the year caught Mariah's attention, leading to a retweet with the words: "Love this! ".

The pair, Abbie aged 23 and Georgia, 24, are back for more laughs in Gogglebox's 23rd series which kicked off in February. When not on TV, Georgia is snipping away as a hairdresser, while Abbie's LinkedIn reveals she works as a credit control clerk, reports the Liverpool Echo.

Recounting her work achievements on Gogglebox in 2022, Abbie shared: "Last week at work I won employee of the month and I'm on LinkedIn. Do you want to know what they wrote? " She proudly read out: "Abbie joined us in 2019 as a credit control apprentice...and progressed to credit control clerk. How posh does that sound! " This led to a humorous moment where she had to explain to Georgia what LinkedIn and a clerk were.
