Gogglebox family The Malones return to show with new cast member

Gogglebox returned to screens on Friday, September 23 at a slightly later time of 10pm. The show, which sees cast members share their opinion on the latest television programmes, is a firm favourite among Channel 4 viewers.

The new episode of Gogglebox started out in the most adorable way as The Malones returned to screens with a brand new addition. The family had previously been missing from the show and were forced to explain their absence after viewer concern.

However, taking to social media last week, Tom and Julie revealed they were simply on holiday and would be returning. And while fans were excited for their comeback, nobody was prepared for the adorable new addition they introduced to viewers.

Stand by for another special reveal on tonight's Gogglebox at 10PM."

Tilly then made an appearance on Julie's lap in the opening scenes of the show. Viewers were in love with the new cast member, with one writing: "Tilly is gorgeous."

While another added: "Aww she cute and welcome back to @TheMalonesGB," and a third said: "Omg The Malone's new puppy!!!!!!!"
