Gogglebox fans URGE Dave and Shirley to move amid ‘hideous’ discovery

'Move house! That's the best idea!'

Gogglebox's Dave and Shirley

by Asher Brandon |

Gogglebox stars Dave and Shirley Griffiths make for one of the most ICONIC duos from the beloved Channel 4 show. The Caerphilly couple were recently in the news after fans told them to move out of their home in relation to a terrifying issue that has arisen.

Dave and Shirley took to Instagram to share a picture of what may be the most terrifying spider we have ever seen. It is hard to gage the size of the spider as there is not much in the picture to indicate scale, but we bet it's an absolute whopper.

Dave and Shirley reached out to their followers, writing, "Found this out the back, any ideas?"

The couple's fans were quick to respond, with one writing, "Not sure yet, but I wouldn't p--s it off."

Another added, "Hideous. Step on it!"

Another person said the couple should, 'Move house! That's the best idea!' as was a view shared by many. And while we may think this could be a bit of an overreaction, we fully appreciate the sentiment.

Dave and Shirley have yet to update us on what has become of the terrifying arachnid, although we'd be willing to bet they haven't popped on Rightmove as a result of the eight legged terror.

In light of this recent scare, here's everything you NEED to know about Dave and Shirley...

Who are Gogglebox's Dave and Shirley Griffiths?

Dave and Shirley Griffiths are a lovable Welsh couple who live in Caerphilly (not too far away from Cardiff for those not up to date on their Welsh geography).

The pair have been together for over 40 years (wow) and are still going strong after all those years of marriage. They have been on Gogglebox since 2015, and have admitted the were fans of the show before they were approached to join the cast.

Since joining the show they have become firm fan favourites and we honestly can't believe they weren't on the show from the beginning.

How old are Dave and Shirley?

Shirley is 67 years old and Dave is 66 at the time of writing.

What do we know about Dave and Shirley's family?

The short answer is not a whole lot. While Dave and Shirley have chosen to have their sofa filmed nightly in the name of good telly, their family remain off camera. this doesn't extend to social media, however, as Dave and Shirley regularly post pics of their family.

They have two children, a son named Simon and daughter named Gemma.

Dave and Shirley shared a picture of them at Christmas with their family. They included the caption, "Merry Christmas to one and all, from the Griffiths family love Dave and Shirley xxx."

What did Dave and Shirley look like when they were younger?

Dave and Shirley posted a picture of them when they were younger earlier this year with the caption, "Look like something out of the sopranos."

Their fans were quick to respond to the post. One person wrote, "Sopranos: Welsh edition! 😂."

Another added, "You both look great."

Someone else said, "You look so much better now guys", whereas we strongly believe they look just as goof now as they did then.

The Moffatts then
