The Channel 4 TV programme Gogglebox has proved a surprise hit so no wonder the best bits from the programme have been collected for this companion book, The World according to Gogglebox. It’s a great way to catch up on the Gogglebox families and learn about them and their views on everything from the walrus to the best cocktails to accompany your TV viewing.
