Say goodbye to Gogglebox’s Sandi: her spot on the couch alongside best mate Sandra will now be occupied by Sandra’s daughter, Chanchez.
Gogglebox introduced Chanchez on Friday 16th December, much to everyone’s confusion. “Where’s Sandi?!?” screamed Twitter.
Channel 4 have since confirmed that Sandi has left Gogglebox, with Chanchez set to replace her permanently.
“We are delighted that Sandra’s daughter Chanchez is to join the show next series,” the broadcaster said in a statement. “She’s a great addition to the cast.
“Sandi has decided to leave the show to pursue her singing career and other opportunities and we wish her all the very best.”
So what are those “other opportunities”?
It looks like Sandi Bogle will be pursuing her singing career, having released her debut single Casanova earlier this year.
She’s also teamed up with singer-songwriter Jack Rose for a cover of Bing Crosby’s White Christmas to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
She may not be the only one leaving: Scarlett Moffatt had to quit the show to film I’m A Celebrity, and the future of the entire Moffatt family on Gogglebox has not yet been revealed.
