If you can't get enough Gogglebox, then there's good news - as Channel 4 has announced a new version focusing on online videos.

The show has become one of C4's biggest hits in recent years, regularly attracting around 4million viewers.


It captures the reactions of households across the nation as they gather on their sofas and watch the week's TV.

Now the internet is getting the Gogglebox treatment in a new spin-off, which will air on digital channel E4.

Aimed at 16 to 24-year-olds, 'Vlogglebox' will feature a regular cast of young reviewers giving their take on the latest viral clips trending on social media, and other short-form internet content.

Innovative filming techniques will see the show shot exclusively on iPhones attached to the participants' phones and tablets.

This means that, unlike its parent show, Vlogglebox will not confine its stars to their couches.

Instead they'll be filmed wherever they're watching the vids - from buses to fast food restaurants.


Executive producer Tania Alexander said: "We all know there's a generation growing up who are captivated by entertaining content that's never seen on conventional television.

"We were very excited to bring that content to E4 in a fresh and amusing way."

Ralph Lee, C4's Deputy Chief Creative Officer, added: "This new project with Studio Lambert brings together the best of traditional television and changing viewing habits of teenagers.

"It is a great opportunity to explore new ways to engage with younger audiences and hear what the youth of today really think about the world around them."

Vlogglebox is C4's third spin-off of the Gogglebox format.

In 2014, a celebrity version was introduced, airing once annually as part of the Stand Up To Cancer campaign.


Gogglesprogs followed in 2015, featuring a cast of children. It initially aired as a one-off special before returning for a full run last year.

The first six-part series of Vlogglebox begins on E4 on Sunday 18th June.
