The news will come as a blow to George fans, who have loved seeing him and his parents comment on the week's TV shows on Gogglebox, the show that catapulted singleton George to fame.

The Essex lad, 30 - nicknamed Squeaky by his mates because of this voice - appeared with mum Linda and stepdad Pete on the C4 reality show, but the family have now been axed.

Gogglebox producer Chantal Boyle told the Mirror that the family had been told in advance they would forfeit their place on the show if George entered the CBB house.

Chantal told the newspaper: "It's all about money. They are pretty cash-strapped and so you can see why they would accept the offer to go on Big Brother.

"But we can't have them in the new series of Gogglebox."

Meanwhile, electrician George is continuing to win over audiences from within the CBB house.
