Channel 4 has commissioned a six-part series of Gogglesprogs, ahead of its Christmas episode on Christmas Day.

Gogglesprogs will see a whole new cast of children, aged between 5 – 12, take centre stage as they give their uninhibited opinions and ultimately hilarious take on a range of TV programmes, in a special edition of the hugely popular Channel 4 series Gogglebox.

Executive Producer, Freya Sampson, said: “There is something special about watching these children give their very different opinions in an utterly honest and ultimately hilarious way. The special is funny, heart-warming, and has the charm of the original Gogglebox series but the way the children interact gives it a different perspective which finds you both laughing and crying. The relationships between them all really pulls at your heart strings in parts and it’s guaranteed to make you happy you’re on the sofa with your loved ones this Christmas. We’re delighted that Channel 4 has loved them all as much as we have and we can continue to bring their inimitable take on the world of TV to viewers in the series for 2016.”

Channel 4’s Head of Specialist, David Glover, who said: ‘It’s really good, with interesting new levels of misunderstandings and insights from the children’s minds. The footage we are getting is both very funny and also at times really moving’

Gogglesprogs is made by Studio Lambert and will air on Christmas Day at 8pm, with a full series airing in 2016.
