Earlier on Friday, Jonathan’s daughter Honey shared a snap of her family as they prepared to make their debut on Celebrity Gogglebox. 

The body image activist took to her Instagram hours before the Channel 4 show aired to share their official portraits, which included her rarely seen brother Harvey, and boyfriend Zane.

The trio, as well as TV star Jonathan, are expected to star in two episodes of the popular show, where they’ll give their verdicts on the weeks’ TV.

The images see the four stretched out on the sofa, with Honey looking radiant in a terracotta dress as she sat beside her musician beau. 

Next to Honey, whose mum is film producer Jane Goldman, was presenter Jonathan, who looked chilled as he lounged in a jazzy shirt and sported bare feet. 

While on his other side was son Harvey Kirby, who doesn’t have social media and is rarely seen on the celebrity circuit.

Jonathan and Jane, 51, also share another daughter, Betty Kitten, 30.

While football stars Micah Richards and Jamie Carragher feature as well as Clara Amfo and brother Andy. 

The civilian version of the show has recently come under fire from Kirstie Allsopp, who continued to take umbrage with Gogglebox on Wednesday when she called the popular programme ‘mean’ and ‘cruel’.

Speaking to My Weekly magazine, the Location, Location, Location presenter, 49, said: ‘It’s one thing to talk about people in private but to put it in a public space is not entertainment.’ 

The TV personality has previously lambasted the show after her programme Kirstie’s Crafty Christmas was slammed by a selection of Gogglebox’s armchair critics.

Participants first took a pop at Kirstie’s festive arts and crafts programme in series 4 of Gogglebox, which has since been removed from All4.  

Kirstie didn’t hold back as she condemned the popular Friday night programme in her latest rant. 

The presenter said frankly: ‘One of my least favourite TV shows is Gogglebox. It’s the worst form of mean, cruel television.’ 

She then described the show, which sees members of the public review the week’s television from their homes, as ‘stomach churning’. 

Fans have previously questioned Kirstie’s hatred of Gogglebox as all of her own programmes are broadcast on Channel 4.

Speaking about Channel 4’s potential privatisation last week, Kirstie said: ‘Folk say @Channel4 is too woke, and selling it appeals to anti woke voters, but they’ve had me front & centre for the last 20 years, and him indoors.

‘Much as I like to use correct & sensitive language and understand the issues of the day I hardly think Pip [co-star Phil Spencer] & I are woke central. 

‘I hate what Gogglebox did to my Christmas show, but that’s Channel 4 for you, they employ me yet still allow me to attack one of their shows.’ 

‘It is an amazing place to work, all the TV I have ever made is for Channel 4,’ she added. 

Gogglebox has been running on Channel 4 since March 2013 and hit a record 6.5 million viewers last year to become one of the channel’s most popular programmes.
