They told Reveal: "Linda, Pete and George are returning to Gogglebox. We are delighted to welcome them back and are very much looking forward to once again hearing their humorous take on telly's weekly offerings."

Pretty exciting, right?

George, Linda and Pete were in the original lineup for Gogglebox, making their debut when the show first aired back in 2013.

However, when George chose to star in Celebrity Big Brother back in 2014, he was forced to give up his place on the show. At the time, he revealed he had to give up his place on Gogglebox for his new celebrity status, as show bosses told him the show was based around ordinary people watching TV.

Now, though, it seems Channel 4 are welcoming the Gilbeys back and Gogglebox fans couldn't be happier. Many have taken to Twitter to share their excitement.

George also made headlines recently as he revealed he is expecting his first baby with girlfriend Gemma.

He confirmed the news in a recent interview with a weekly mag, revealing he and Gemma are set to welcome a baby girl earlier this year.

Not surprisingly, George has since been inundated with well wishes on his double dose of exciting news. Taking to Twitter recently, he addressed his 100,000 followers, tweeting: "Thank you all for the amazing support #Gogglebox."

Gogglebox returns to Channel 4 on Friday 19 February.
