Gogglebox stars admit to 12-hour drinking session before falling off sofa
Couple admitted they were partying for '12, nearly 13 hours'
Steph and Dom Parker, also known as the ‘posh couple’ from Channel 4’s Gogglebox, have admitted they were drinking for more than 12 hours by the end of one filming session.
The couple, who were often seen drinking tipple after tipple, have confessed that they had been drinking all day after one celebrated scene when Dom tumbled off the sofa.
Dom, 49, who runs a B&B in Sandwich with his wife Steph, told the Radio Times: “We went for lunch at about 12.30, came back at six and carried on in our normal way. We finished filming that night at 1.30am, so we’d been partying for 12, nearly 13 hours.”
But Dom blamed his wife for him falling of the sofa. “Steph came in a bit too enthusiastically for a kiss and tipped the bloody sofa over,” he added.
The spirited duo have won an army of fans who tuned in week after week to watch the ‘poshos’ as they knocked back the wine and made slurring judgements about people on the box.
The couple, who have been married for 18 years, said their behaviour would be more restrained if their two children were not away at private schools, but they are glad people find them entertaining.
Steph, 47, said: “Ours is very honest behaviour, with no censoring and no filtering.
"We'd behave very differently if the children were here. But you get the honest, brutal truth from us when we sit down and relax."
