Gogglebox fans have sent messages of support to show favourites Dave and Shirley Griffiths after they shared an update about their son.

The married couple have been welcoming viewers into their Caerphilly home since 2015 and have established themselves as fan favourites with their hilarious observations on the week's best TV. While some Gogglebox households include a number of family members, Dave and Shirley's children never appear on the hit Channel 4 show.
