Why is Gogglebox on Saturday?

On Friday, October 14, Gogglebox confirmed at the end of their latest episode that the reality TV show will face a schedule shake up this week – and fans were left disappointed.

The fan-favourite show will be postponed for 24 hours and instead will air on Saturday, October 22, to make room for Friday Night Live.

The schedule change has been made to accommodate a one-off 90-minute special episode of Friday Night Live to celebrate 40 years of the flagship channel.

Ben Elton will be hosting a revival of the iconic comedy show that first aired back in the 1980s.
