What the Gogglebox living rooms tell us about the stars from tiffs to wacky mugs

It’s said that your environment often reflects your personality, and nowhere is that more true than the intimate confines of your home.

Which is why the stars of Gogglebox are really letting viewers in on more than their legendary TV reactions when they open up their homes to the cameras.

Hitting our screens each Friday evening, the friends and families on Gogglebox broadcast straight from their living rooms.

According to a study carried out by Essential Living and colour expert Momtaz Begum-Hossain, their choice of wallpaper and cushions could reveal what the stars are really like.

And there are some shocking revelations indeed…

Pete and Sophie

The study suggested that Pete and Sophie could be a lot more sentimental than they let on.

The personal touches of their living room – from the wacky mugs they sip tea from each episode to the various knick-knacks and photos visible on their shelves – could indicate they have a deep sensitive side.

Momtaz added: “Their living room features warm, welcoming positive colours that uplift your mood and are vital to combat negativity.”

The combination of yellows, blues and greys are a sign of intelligence combined with confidence.

The brother and sister pair are often seen joking with each other, but they’ve definitely been known to showcase their softer side, and aren’t afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves.

Pete comforted his sister last year as she cried watching Boris Johnson’s latest lockdown announcement in November.

“It’s going to get even worse, more people are going to lose their jobs and things like that, it’s just awful,” Sophie said at the time.

Pete replied: “Aww don’t get upset kid, don’t because you’ll set me off!”

Izzi and Ellie

According to Momtaz, the Leeds sisters’ jade coloured velvet throws and cobalt grey leather sofas can "counteract dishonesty".

Grey is thought of as a neutral colour, like brown, but much more trendy and bright.

It is unclear whether the colour combo was an intentional choice or not.

The sisters are estimated to make more than £600,000 a year if they both post on Instagram once a day.

Jenny and Lee

Best friends Jenny and Lee have been filming together at Jenny’s caravan in Hull since the first lockdown.

They’ve opted for an interior upgrade this series, crafting a cosy yet trendy feel with a beige sofa adorned with stylish rose gold cushions.

The cream and beige furniture, complemented by turquoise and peach cushions, are said to symbolise beauty and attractiveness.

We’re not sure whether the besties knew pastels would be on trend for 2021 – but maybe not, judging by their questionable fashion choices in the past.

We won’t be forgetting Jenny’s face pack and sunglasses for a while!

Momtaz added: “Soft apricot is warm enough to be uplifting and welcoming, yet light enough not to distract. The pinky undertones in peach create a room that has a gentle, whimsical charm.”

The pastel curtains add an element of calm to the room.

The Malones

The Malones’ house underwent a radical transformation for series 17, with a bold grey and red colour scheme for the lounge.

The boisterous family are known for their collection of Rottweilers, who often climb on top of their parents with hilarious results.

But could there be something more sinister lurking beneath the surface?

Experts say there is a misconception that a red room leads to romance – and the colour is actually more likely to ignite rage between couples.

Hopefully, this isn’t a bad sign for Tom and Julie!

The Michaels

The cheerful Brighton family are a Gogglebox staple.

Despite a brief departure from the show in 2014 due to Andrew’s proposed candidacy as a UKIP MP, they later returned in all their glory.

Momtaz said their unique arrangements suggest the Michaels are a “creative couple”.

She said they “desire a space that captures their personality and uniqueness […] This aesthetic has a more sensual feel where colour, texture and patterns coordinate to create a bedroom that is bold and beautiful.

"Rooms look sophisticated when you mix dark and light shades.

“The light base colour on the walls and details comprising regal colours like purple create that indulgent theme.”

The purple accents suggest royalty, spirituality and magic.

Giles and Mary

Eccentric husband and wife duo Giles and Mary are known for their bickering and quirky commentary, but what does their living room say about them?

The mixture of vintage furniture, books and leafy prints creates a cosy space for the couple.

Momtaz says the leaf printed green walls and chairs add a sprinkle of nature to the interior.

“You can enhance the power of green further by introducing plant life into the bedroom, such as trailing ivy which also purifies the air.”

It’s perhaps best left to the imagination what the inside of the couples’ bedrooms looks like!
