Joe Baggs reveals the real reason his family quit Gogglebox after shock exit | The Sun

JOE Baggs has revealed the real reason his family quit Gogglebox following their shock exit last year.

He and his brother George – along with mum and dad Lisa and Terry – joined Gogglebox in 2020.

They stepped down from the show just two years later and now Joe, 26, has opened up on their decision.

He said: "We decided that there were things we wanted to do that we couldn't do while we were on the show.

"There is a reason why there's not many young people on there. It's because we're in this new age of social media that me and George love so much."

Speaking on the Useless Hotline podcast, Joe added: "I couldn't see myself just coming home every week and eating a takeaway and doing that for the rest of my life. There's so much more I wanted to do, that's why we ended up leaving."

The family previously said in a statement: "After 3 incredible seasons on Channel 4’s Gogglebox we have taken the decision to leave the show.

"We have loved every second of being part of the Gogglebox family and it’s truly been the opportunity of a lifetime.

“With lots of exciting opportunities approaching for us all, we just couldn’t commit to filming another series, but are so grateful for the opportunity."

In December the family revealed a "secret brother" who "wasn't allowed" to join the show.
