GOGGLEBOX viewers were taken aback by the dramatic new backdrop of Ellie and Izzy Warner last night.
The latest in the set of the popular sisters was a major change for the series, and it was a huge hit with audiences.
His regular pale blue walls and wooden bookcase were replaced with a funky orange radiator and hot air balloon wallpaper.
Fans of the show speculated that the sisters were filming inside Ellie’s now home, which she bought with boyfriend Nat in the spring.
One wrote on Twitter: “Did Ellie or Izzy shake? Room looks different. #Gogglebox.”
Another asked: “Have Ellie and Izzy gone home? #Gogglebox.”
While a third said: “Ellie and Izzy’s living room is unreal. Love it! #Gogglebox.”
And in fact Ellie told her Instagram followers about the change before the episode.
She shared a photo of the sisters in the room and wrote: “Evening campers! T minus 3 hours til brand new @c4gogglebox Who’s excited?! New series, new hair and new living room #gogglebox #gogglers.”
Five stars left the show before the new series after being affected by tragic deaths.
The hit Channel 4 show has lost three of its beloved stars in recent months, and their family members will not be returning.
Executive producer Victoria Ray explained: “We have recently passed away people on the show.
“We lost Mary and Andy, and we lost Pete a while back. Their loved ones will not be attending the show at this time. Obviously, they want their privacy.”
He added to the Daily Star that all stars have the option to return to Gogglebox in the future, if they so desire.
