In other Gogglebox news, former star Andrew Bennett has been jailed for sexually assaulting a teenage boy.

Bennett appeared in the twelfth season of the popular Channel 4 show alongside his friend Fawn. He was sentenced to 29 months in prison and ordered to sign the sex offenders register.

It comes after Bennett cornered a teenage victim at a house and subjected him to an attack that left him “in tears”. The victim said he has since suffered flashbacks.

The court was told that Bennett was under the influence of alcohol on the night and had asked the teenager if he was gay. When he responded no, Bennett continued to pursue him.
