Kate Bottley and Gogglebox

Kate was reached out to by Channel 4 following a wedding flashmob video that went viral in 2012. She stars on the show alongside her husband who notoriously acts as Kate's silent footstool while she provides the running commentary. Her light-hearted sense of humour is often compared to the Vicar of Dibley, which is part of the reason she went on the show. She told The Star:

“We wanted to show people that just because we have a faith and are Christians, it doesn’t mean we are four headed. We watch telly like everybody else, we have arguments – we are normal people.”
