Gogglebox’s Dave and Shirley disclose off-screen secrets

Gogglebox couple Dave and Shirley Griffiths have been providing viewers with plenty of laughs since 2015 – but not too much is known about their lives away from the cameras.

The couple, who have been married for 45 years, live in Caerphilly, in South Wales, and were already massive fans of the Channel 4 show before being spotted by a casting agent.

They have become known for their soft Welsh tones and light-hearted banter – as well as some laugh out loud moments, reports the Mirror.

One of the most memorable moments came when Shirley called Dave a “bloody a*****e” when she found his Viagra pills stuffed in a drawer, while another time he revealed all about their saucy antics in the bath.
