Gogglebox’s Dave and Shirley’s rare family snap leaves fans with same question

Gogglebox stars Dave and Shirley Griffiths have shared a rare look into their family life with a Christmas snap.

The couple, from Caerphilly, Wales, have been enjoying their festive break with loved ones after filming for the Channel 4 series came to an end earlier this month.

Fans of the hit show are used to seeing the pair on-screen together with one of their pet pooches.

This means fans don’t get to see the husband and wife’s other family members, including their children.

But the pair have now changed that by posting a lovely family selfie as they enjoyed a pub meal.

Dave, 65, and Shirl, 66, smiled alongside their grown-up children, Simon and Gemma, as well as Gemma’s husband Alex and their grandson Elliot.

“Merry Christmas to one and all, from the griffiths family love dave and shirley xxx,” the couple shared alongside the snap to their thousands of followers.

But the picture did have to be posted twice as the Gogglebox regulars missed off half their family members.

Dave, Shirley and their family were quickly flooded with Christmas wishes for their fans.

Others, however, were quick to make the same comment after Shirley once revealed on Gogglebox that she took her own gravy granules to the pub.

@jemsofa joked: “Enjoy your meal hope Shirl didn’t bring her own gravey!”

“Has Shirl brought her own gravy? .. Merry Christmas,” @blu2121 commented.
