"Gogglebox has been an outstanding success for Foxtel, and continues to hold the record as the number one audience in the Lifestyle channel's history."

"Viewers clearly can't get enough of their favourite households giving their take on the week's TV, so we are thrilled to be able to confirm another two seasons for next year, and extend the length of each series," she said.

Stars Angie and Yvie said it was strange but lovely to meet their co-stars for the first time.

"We have never met before," Yvie said.

"It was like meeting a life long penpal or a really good Tinder date."

The women joined The Jacksons and Wayne and Tom at the launch event in Sydney.

Foxtel has always kept the families featured on the show isolated from one another to keep the show's authenticity.
