Gogglebox came back on our screens this month and series favourites The Malone family have been hiding two big secrets from fans of the hit Channel 4 show.
Viewers are familiar of mum Julie, dad Tom Senior and sons Tom Jr and Shaun but there are two other siblings that do no feature in the comedy show.
Bodybuilder Lee and trained nurse Vanessa are Tom Jr and Shaun's older brother and sister but have never been seen on-screen alongside the rest of the Malone clan, who have been a hit with audiences for six glorious seasons.
The Malones joined Gogglebox for the fourth series back in 2014, but Lee and Vanessa have always shied away from the cameras.
Lee is a doting brother to his siblings and a loving uncle to his little niece and nephew.
The strapping muscle man lives with his fiancé Sarah and runs his own property renovations business.
Meanwhile, "secret" sister Vanessa is proud to be a trained NHS nurse and mum to two children.
The NHS hero has been working tirelessly through the Covid-19 pandemic and recently shared a post to her Instagram celebrating International Nurses Day.
She wrote: "Happy international nurses day to all of my wonderful friends and colleagues! I am so proud of my team, I am proud of the NHS and I am proud of myself.
"Nursing through this pandemic so far has been a challenge both physically and mentally but we can do this.
"I am also proud of all the nurses who have been redeployed from other wards onto our unit, you have have been a huge asset to our team. thank you!!! Proud to be a nurse"
Lee recently revealed he and his fiancé Sarah had been forced to postpone their wedding due to the pandemic.
Sharing a photo of the two of them smooching in a hot tub, he captioned the snap: “The Malone Postponement”
Lee is an avid gym-goer and regularly posts photos of his workouts and bodybuilding competitions.
The Malones are known not only for their hilarious one liners and adorable moments, but their four gorgeous Rottweilers – Dave, Lucy, Izzy and Joe often steal the limelight.
And it seems a love of dogs runs in the family as Lee also has his own pooches, Old Tyme bulldogs Maddie and Bear.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, Gogglebox filming is still taking place with rigged cameras in place to prevent crew mixing with the armchair critics.
Each family has to commit to 12 hours of filming each week split across two six-hour shifts.
They then need to analyse and share opinions on the programmes they have been told to watch.
Celebrity Gogglebox begins on Channel 4 on Friday June 5 at 9pm
