Gogglebox fan-favourite ‘set’ to join Dancing On Ice after Channel 4 exit

NTAs: Gogglebox star admits to having three vodkas before show

It’s believed Gogglebox fan-favourite Stephen Webb will be one of the celebrities taking part in this year’s Dancing On Ice.

Earlier this month, it was revealed the cast member of the Channel 4 show decided to leave alongside his husband Daniel Lustig after 10 years.

Although fans were saddened to see the duo leave, it looks as though Stephen could be making a TV return sooner than expected.

A TV source told The Sun many people who star in Gogglebox often get approached by other broadcasters to star in other shows.

They said: ”Many Gogglebox stars face a dilemma at some point. Many of them develop profiles in their own right and inevitably receive offers to appear on other shows.

“If they do go on other things they are making official their transition to celebrity, and Gogglebox reviewers are meant to be regular members of the public.

“Stephen had very much developed his own profile. It wasn’t a surprise he received other offers, though no one would have necessarily guessed he’d be doing Dancing On Ice.”

Stephen and Daniel took to social media to announce their Gogglebox exit as they revealed it felt like the right time to move on and explore other opportunities.

The Brighton hairdresser first appeared on Gogglebox back in 2013 and kept the nation laughing with his commentary of the latest TV shows.

First joined by old best friend Chris Butland-Steed, Stephen was joined by his mum Pat for a short while before his husband joined in 2020.

Speaking about their exit, show creators Studio Lambert and Channel 4 said: “After a brilliant and illustrious time on Gogglebox, Stephen and Daniel have decided that now is the right time to explore life beyond the sofa and leave the show.

“As one of the original Goggleboxers, Stephen has entertained the nation with his hilarious quips since the show first started in 2013, sharing his opinions on the best and biggest TV events of the last ten years.

“We would like to thank him and Daniel for being utterly brilliant contributors to the show, and we wish them well with their future projects.”

Gogglebox airs on Fridays at 9pm on Channel 4.

The latest series returned to screens earlier this month as viewers welcomed two new additions to the show following Stephen and Daniel’s exit.

Mother and son duo Elaine and Seb gave their thoughts and opinions from their sofa in the Forest of Dean.

Speaking about Seb’s upcoming graduation and what Elaine was planning on wearing, it seemed as though viewers were divided over welcoming the newcomers.
