So THIS is why Gogglebox’s Kate Bottley hasn’t been on the show for a while

Turns out there’s a very simple explanation for the Gogglebox favourite’s absence


This series of Gogglebox saw the departure (albeit possibly a temporary one) of Scarlett Moffatt, who ditched her sofa for a log in the jungle as she chokes down camel nipples on ITV’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!


However, to many viewers’ surprise she hasn’t been the only fan-favourite no-show lately, with Reverend Kate Bottley and her husband Graham also failing to appear. Had they decided to take a step back like Steph and Dom, we wondered, or was there something else going on? 

Now, Kate has answered the lingering mystery with a very simple answer – basically, the pair of them have been busy helping their daughter with her exams.

Call off the search, folks – we’re sure they’ll be back soon.


Gogglebox continues on Channel 4 on Fridays at 9.00pm
